Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.

A very Happy, Healthy, New Year to you all.

Well it's the 1st of the month again and time for a new challenge over at


Our lovely team friend Carole is your host for this months challenge and she would like to see you use Kraft Card on your creations.

The challenge runs from today till the 30th of January 2023.

Here is what I made for this challenge this month.


This is a 6"x6" size card.

I used a Works Die  in the shape of a flag for the main die cut image,

The papers used asre Graphic 45 and work so well for a male card.

From the rest of the card stock which was 12"x12" I die cut out the flags and the stars.

Then I used a strip of Kraft card stock which was a snippet left over from another project, as it had Happy Birthday already printed on it in in gold.

Thank you so much for your visit and wonderful comments you make.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Happy New Year Jenny, hope 2023 is a good one for you and your family.
Thank you so much for your beautiful Christmas card- I hope yours arrived safely, so many seem to have gone AWOL this year because of the postal strikes- I'm totally fed up with strikes and strikers now!
Gorgeous card as always, the colours and design are perfect for a masculine card.

Happy New year to you. This card is a "star". Great design and I like the shade of darker green. It's a great masculine card and they are sometimes hard to make.

What a fun birthday card Jenny! I love the color combo, I love kraft color cardstock on cards with just about any color. I don't know what it is about kraft cardstock, but think it is so pretty. Love how you put all the birthday sentiments on it. The green paper is gorgeous and I love all the stars. Inside looks amazing as well! Hugs, Brenda
