I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

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

Sorry I have been missing in action but I have had quite a few health appointments to attend to in March and March is a very busy month for family cards too.

Do not worry they were just routine appointments for opticians, dentist and hospital, but were doubled up because of problems, such as fillings and of course when I go to the opticians I get referred back to the hospital again and I must say the appointment for the hospital was very quick to arrive.


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


It's the lovely Helen's turn to host this month's challenge and she would like to see Fancy Folds on your creations. 

So here is what I created.



The second picture is the opening of the card .

This is a 8"x8" size card that I adjusted the size from a Sam Callcott You Tube vidio.

The flowers around the aperture and on the front are Tattered Lace Dies and I coloured them with Alchol Markers.

Image of the birds are Hunkydory.

I made the stick pin on the front.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreiate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

It's good to get all of those appointments out of the way Jenny!
Your card is stunning, I love the design with the diorama inside and those shades of blue are just so beautiful.

Wow Jenny, this fancy fold card is fabulous !! I absolutely love how you have created this, and completed by your fabulous stick pin, I love it.
I'm glad your appointments were not too bad and that combined with your card making must have been very time-consuming. I have a similar problem with March too.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
