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

Well it's the 25th of the month again already and time for 
The Rudolf Days Challenge
over at
The challenge runs till the end of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as Christmas related.
There is always a lovely prize to be won as well as getting your Christmas Creations made early. 

So here is what I created for my DT this month.

This is a 5"x7" tent style card.
The die is a cheap die bought form Amazon.
I cut an aperture in my Glitter card stock with the die, and then cut the die out black card stock and backed it with the glitter card stock and slotted it back in the aperture.
The Merry Christmas die was a Cottage Cuts die.

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

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

Hope everyone out there is keeping well and not affected by this awful virus.

On Wednesday last week it was my sister's 57th Anniversay and she lives in Wales so I had to make a card that was quite flat for postage.
Every Year she puts up every card I have made her over the years I have been making cards.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used Paper Boutique paper pad Flutterbies,and Butterflies.
This was a freebie from C&C club a few years back.
I made the heart aperture flat for posting.
Used a Tattered Lace Die to cut the paerture and  for around the aperture.
The leaves and the bow were Snippets left over from another card I made.
Not sure if this is a little busy with the two different papers used.

Thank you as always for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

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

I do hope everyone had a nice weekend.

I was asked to make a retirement card for a colleague at my Daughter's works recently.
It was a request that needed to be made quickly so good old Hunkydory images to the rescue.
The person in question has worked for my Daughter's company for 38 years and what dedication to work there for so long, and help lots of clients that have learning difficulties.

This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
The Hunkydory card stock and images were a Hunkydory free gift from their site back last year I think, you just pay £2.99 for the postage. 
I included ten 5"x5" cards in the pockets for everyone to sign and give their own greetings.

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.

It's the first of the month and time for another challenge over at

The challenge theme this month is At The Beach.
You have to the end of the month to enter the challenge, I do hope you can.
I must admit I found this one a little hard till I remembered some stamps I had from Creative Stamping Magazine a few years ago so I created a beach scene.


This is a 7"x7" size card.
I started by water colouring my
my sky, sea, and sand with a selection of Izink Inks on water colour card.
I then used some pearlised white ink to create the waves, and also sone white gel pen too.
I then stamped my sandcastle, birds, and sentiment on my trusted Misti to the scene.
Then I paper pieced  the beach hut, bucket and spade, deck chair, and parasol to the scene which I coloured in with Promarkers.
The inside was stamped by hand with shells which are an Inkylicious
I was quite pleased with the result.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely creations made by my team friends.
Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
