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 friends, and visitors.

It's time for Team B over at
and Jan is our lovely host this time around, and she would like to see Christmas Scenes on your entries.
The challenge runs from 8/12/16 to Wednesday 21/12/16 at 1PM, and then we have a Christmas Break till
January 2017.
This is all for perhaps a Top 3 or 5 badge, but we love to see your wonderful creations you make.
Please pop over to the challenge blog to see what my lovely Team mates created.

So here is what I made for my DT card.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The Christmas Scene came from a Hunkydory set I bought.
I used some Gold Rainbow Mirri card for my base and then added one of the scenes that came with the set.
I decoupaged the village scene.
Then added some ivy and white poinsettias.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.😄
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Really, really beautiful creation Jenny, fabulous image, the church in the background has a steeple just like the church I used to go to as a child, many moons ago. Great embellishments too.

Hi Jenny me again on hat sizes, you can get sizes on Internet, and all online hat companies have a how to on their pages. Alistair is a medium and that measures 57cm. If you measure around the fullest part of the head, you'll get your hubby's size. Hope this helps, Kate x

Having a wee catch up on your blog. This card is so pretty. Love the size!

We just got the Hunky Dory kits at our local store earlier this year.
Just bought a few of the kits as they were on clearance for 70% off.
It was when I was in hospital, so my non cardmaking girlfriend went in and bought them for me! What a dear friend she is.
