I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 2 Great Grandsons. 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 welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Just popped in today to remind you all that the
 Rudolf Challenge starts over at
  on the 25th of the month.
This runs from the 25th to the end of the month, and it's a wonderful way to get some your Christmas cards made earlier than you usually would.
You can also win a lovely prize too.
Now as this month I have a rest from being on the design team  I thought I would make a couple of cards out of snippets so I could join my lovely friends in the Snippets Playground.

I won the lovely Scotty Dog Die on the Pixie's Snippets Playground a few months ago.
I had the idea for the design of the first card from a Christmas Gift Bag I received, and the second was the negative that was left when I die cut the Scotty Dog out of Snippets of holographic mirri card to glitter.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
