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

It's been all go at my bungalow as I have had new windows and doors fitted, so the craft room was packed up for this.

Lots of cleaning afterwards still not finished it all.


So as today is the 25th of the month it's time for the last Rudolf Days Challenge of the year over at 


As always it's anything goes

 as long as it's Christmas. 

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


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

So here is 2 quick makes I managed to make when my craft room was nearly up and running again.

These are both 8"x8" size cards.

The first one I used some wooden gnomes I bought from Amazon these were also for a Christmas tree but I cut of the string and used some small snowballs to cover the holes.

The paper was a Carnation Crafts download.

Glitter card from Tonic, I used the waste of a sentiment I cut out and put a snippet of glitter card behind it for my sentiment.

The second card I used some Gingerbread items bought from Amazon, I think they are for use on a Christmas tree as they have holes in the top and some string that came with them.

Snowflakes cut off a roll of them from Amazon again and I added some bling to the centres.

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.

Hi Jenny, Two fabulous Christmas cards, I especially love the gnomes they are gorgeous.
I hope you get your refurbishments completed soon and can get back to your crafting again.
I need to decorate numerous rooms in my house but we also need new windows, new door and a new bathroom, so I won't be tackling the decortating until we have managed to get all those other things done haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Both cards are cuteness overload with the adorable gnomes and cute gingerbread cookies and mug. The added touch of sparkle is just enough in the corners and I love all the snowflakes and gems! Happy Rudolph day for the last time this year :)

Hello, Jenny! Happy Rudolph Day to you! Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words! I wanted to come over here yesterday to comment on your cards but I couldn't find the link on Mo's post and I couldn't remember your blog name. My memory is very bad these days. I love your cards, especially the gingerbreads! I love all things gingerbread; they are so cute and fun! Wishing you many blessings over the holidays!
