RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE JANUARY 2021

 

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

 

Sorry I have not been about much this month I am suffering with my Arthritis quite badly everywhere in my body at the mo.

So with this new lockdown I have no help with my work, and it takes me ages to get it all done, and then I am too exhausted to blog.

I have however made quite a few cards as I had orderes and family ones to do, and January is a busy month for family Birthdays. 

I can never say no to anyone that asks me to make cards are you the same.

Well that's enough of my woes I am sure there are lots more people with more severe health issues than me so I shouldn't grumble.

 

So I quickly made a card for the 

Rudolf Days Challenge over at

SCARPPYMOS BLOG 

 as I don't like to miss it, and it's not my month for DT so I can enter. 

 


This is a 7"x5" size card.

The stamp is a Wooeware one that was one of  lovely presents from Maureen for being on her DT.

I origanlly stamped it on the front of the card, but I didn't like it like that so I stamped it again and cut it out and raised it on card board

this is a cheaper way than using foam tape.

Will be back tomorrow with my DT for Moving Along With The Times as it's the first of the month.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate your visit especially as I am such a bad blogger at the mo.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

I would like to enter this not the following challenge.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES CHALLENGE 126.......DT....NEW BEGININGS

 

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

A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR
TO YOU ALL.

Lest hope this year is a going to be a better one and we can get back to some normality soon.

 

As it's the first of the month it's time for another challenge over at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

The challenge theme this month chosen by our lovely Carole is 

NEW BEGININGS

So New Baby, Weddings, New Home and that sort of thing.

The challenge runs to the 30th of January 2021.

So I made a Baby card for my DT

actually I made this a while ago but have never shown it.

 

This is a 8"x8" size card.

I used up lots of snippets of paper left over from other Baby cards I have made hence the half and half style papers.

The photo of the inside I couldn't get the colour right as the colour is more like the front of the card.

The doily was a Tattered Lace Die, and the Baby items was a cheap Chinese die.

Please try and visit the challenge blog to see the lovely creations made by my team friends.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

GREAT GRANDDAUGHTER'S SLIDE UP CARD

 

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

 

I do hope everyone is keeping safe and well in these uncertain times.

Yay I will see my Daughter for the first time in 2 weeks as she had a case of Covid where she works and didn't want to come round just in case.

Thankfully all her tests came back negative but she still didn't want to chance it.

She still had to work though as she is a Manager in a home for Adults with learning difficulties.

Hence she was being tested weekly and she has to wear all the gear needed to be safe.

 

Earlier this year I was tempted as you do to buy this die from Tonic as I thought it would make a great card for my Great Granddaughter Ellie.

 


This  is how it opens up

    
Then finally like this.







Sorry about the first photo I just couldn't get the colour right the colours are more like the second and third photos.

Ellie was going through a faze of loving Sloths.

So I bought this card stock from C&C in their summer sale and it was designed by Carly Duff.

The photo in the second slide up part was the only recent photo I could find, and it was from a day out when it was very windy.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

LAST RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE OF 2020....DT CARDS

 

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

 

Well its the 25th of the month yet again and time for the last Rudolf Days Challenge of 2020 over at

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

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

You have to the end of the month to enter.

One Entry per Person.

I would like to take this oppertunity to thank Maureen for having me yet again as one of her wonderful Design Team and all the hard work involved in running this great challenge.

  It's been a great pleasure to work with some very talented DT friends also.

So here are my last 2 cards for this year.

 


These are both 8"x8" size cards.

The first one is another Napkin image from Anna Marie.

Anna Marie paper sprayed with gold mica spray.

Poinsettias and foilage are Tattered Lace Dies.

The second card is a Hunkydory Image.

I found the Carol music on the web and the paper I used was copied from the back of a package of some food which I cannot remember what, but isn't it so pretty I could not throw it away.

For my floral bouquet I rolled up some snippets of red card to make 3 cylinders and tied them together with a ribbon then added ivy leaves, berries, and some small flowers.

Finished it all off with snow paste around the deges and glitter to the image.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

 

I would like to enter the first card into the following challenges.
