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


It's the 25th of the month and time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at


The challenge runs from today till the midnight at the end of the month.


but you may put more than one creation on your post if you like.

As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas and there is a prize for the winner randomly picked out.

Now I must apologise as there are quite a lot of photos on this months DT cards.



This card is called a pinwheel card.

I saw Sam Callcot on You Tube making a similar one I just adapted the size for what I wanted.

This folds flat and will fit into an A4 envelope.

If anyone would like to know the sizes I used email me or let me know in your comment and I will give you the sizes I used.

The both cards wwere made with images from Katy Sue's Christmas books one was Little Angels and the other was Snow Globe Christmas Scenes.

Glitter card was Tonic as it cuts out perfectly with dies.

I have made 5 different ones of these and have 5 more to make for family so you will see a lot of these in the future. 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

What fabulous pinwheel cards Jenny! Such a striking shape and they must have taken you ages to make - a real labour of love and stunning results.

By the way - the photo of the pooch wearing a paper bag wasn't Dudley - I wish he would sit still for that long! Absolutely no chance.

Thank you for your lovely comments about my RD card as well. Sweet lady.
