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. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and good morning to all my wonderful talented followers and
THANK YOU for stopping by and leaving such wonderful 
comments on my work.
I feel like doing a happy dance every time I read them.

Today I am bringing back my card I made for Dawns Breast
Awareness Challenge  a few weeks ago.
The reason I am doing this is I made the card for the challenge, and then put the finished card in my box where I keep my made  cards.
When my daughter and her partner were here the other day I was
showing them the cards I had made recently.
Well my daughter's partners sister is fighting breast cancer at the
moment and having lots of treatment.
So as soon as they saw the card they said could they have it for
her, which I was more than pleased to do.
I have now made a box to go with the card to be posted, so I thought I would put them both on my blog today.
I am so glad this card is going to someone who deserves it.

 Click on the photo to get a closer look.
 Now the card.

The inside.

 The card is an 8x8 card with a box to match.
I used The Special Touch Mask in a A4 size to emboss the pink
I made the Breast Cancer Ribbon out of paper and decorated it.
I also made the roses on the box from the Spellbinders Bitty
Blossoms Die.
Sorry it's a bit of a long post today
Thank you again for your visit to my blog.

Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I scrolled down past your text and actually thought the 'box' was the the card, it was so beautiful, then I scrolled down further and read 'and now the card', you have excelled yourself with these creations. Your daughters, partners, sister will really appreciate these thoughts, the sentiment on the box is beautiful, it will truly lift her spirits. My thoughts and prayers are going to her.

Good morning Jenny. My thoughts are with your daughters partners sister tell her to keep positive it's hard but does help. I got a " all is good ". From the hospital yesterday. So I feel positive thoughts do work. She will love her card it's beautiful.

What a wonderful card Jenny and the box is delightful, it will definitely lift the ladies spirits. I am so sorry to hear this sad news and please send my best wishes to her. It is amazing how many of us know someone with cancer and even now it never seizes to shock us. Your card is beautifully designed, well done! Love Christine H xx

Hi Jenny - I think this card is amazing - so pretty and just right for the occasion. I feel sure that she will love it. I really must do more to the insides of my cards - you have inspired me!!!! Sooo glad that the doorstops are working - you are right though, I have a feeling there will be loads more to decorate soon! Perhaps I should put them in my blog Candy!!! I've just noticed that you are nearly at 40 followers - yay!!!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
