RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE DT JANUARY 2022

 

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

I have been a bad blogger yet again, as I have had lots of family Birthdays and also family and neighbours have asked me to make cards too, and as you know I can't say no to anyone.

One card was for a lady who was having her pallet of her mouth removed so I just had to make one to cheer her up. 

 

As it's the 25th of January already it's time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

I do so hope it is my turn to do my DT this month as I am not sure.

But as I last did it in November last year I presume it's my turn again as we do alternative months.

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

As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON 

but you may put more than one card on the same post if you like.

There is always a lovely prize for the winner donated by Maureen too.

So here is what I made this month.

 


These are both 8"x8" in size.

The background dies are Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Dies.

The fir branches and pine cones are Sizzix.

The coloured rainbow mirri card is Tonic.

I paper pieced the Deck the Halls in the blue to make it stand out more.

Thank you so much for you visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment especially as I am such a bad blogger too.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE DT..............NOVEMBER 2021

 

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

Well it's the the 25th of the month already, and time for the last

Rudolf Days Challenge of this year over at.

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

The challenge runs from today till the end of the month, and as usual it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.

There is also a prize to be won from the very generous Maureen.

As this is the last challenge for this year I would like to thank Maureen for having me on her design team.

I do so love this challenge as it gets my Christmas cards made early.

So here is what I created this month.

These are both 8"x8" size cards.

I decided to make two different wreath cards.

I cut out a wreath shape with circle dies and covered both of them with ribbon.

The first I used up some lovely wooden stags I have had from the Works for years.

They are actually tree ornaments.

I just popped a gem in the hole where the string for the hanger was.

The second I used some white and grey wooden snowflakes I recently bought from the Works.

The glitter sentiment was a purchase from the Works a couple of years ago.

Then I added some foam snow balls. 

Sorry the picture of the second card look a bit dark it's really quite white, but I couldn't get a decent photo of it.

 

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

 

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

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

The host for this challenge is the lovely CAZ and she would like to see.

 Anything but a Card.

The challenge runs to the 29th of November 2021.

I decided to make a Christmas Tissue Box.

 



I make these tissue boxes with the box card left over from making my 8"x8" boxes.

The paper used is from the Works and was only £3 for a 12"x12" size pad and it's a super weight too.

Loved the scenes I used on the tissue box.

The top of the box I sprayed with Nuvo Mica Mist in 2 different colours.

The snowflakes are wooden and also from the Works and were £1 for lots.

 

Please go over to the challenge blog and see the lovely creations made by my team friends.

 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
