RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE......JULY 2021 .......DT CAARDS

 

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

 

Well it's the 25th of the month yet again, and time for the

Rudolf Days Challenge over at

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG 

The challenge runs from today till the last day of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.

There is a lovely prize for the winner too.

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

 


These are both 8"x8" in size.

On the both I used up some tags I made about 4 years ago to enter Lolls tag challenge she ran then.

Not sure if it still runs or not.

The first card is a mixed media design with lots of different layers.

The second card I stamped fir branches all over card for a background similar to the tag, and on the inside edges of the card too, and I also stamped the verses on both.

Couldn't find my lovely pearlised embossing powder to make it the same as the tag.

I added some lovely green Holographic card to the tag to match the matt and layer edge.

The Holographic Card is from 

Tonic and they sell some lovely colours in it.

The image on the tag is a Hunkydory one.

The mixed media one I can't rememeber where those images came from on the baubles.

I added Glossy Accents to each bauble.

The MDF Noel is from Anna Marie Designs.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comments you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES DT.........SPRING IS COMING

 

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

I am back again today as it's the first of the month and time for a new challenge over at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES 

The theme this month is 

SPRING IS COMING,

 chosen by our lovely Christine, as it's March.

Now luckily I didn't have to make a card especially for this theme as I had made one for my Stepdaughter who had a severe stroke just after New Years, and I wanted to make a card that cheered her up.

She is home now and having physio, but was only 57 which I think is quite young.

Thankfully her Dad was not here to worry about her.

She also caught covid while in the hospital which I was not happy about.

So here is the Spring themed card I made her.

 


This is a 8"x8" size card.

The card stock is from Hunkydory Garden Treasures.

In the kit you had some plant pot cards you could make.

I decided to put one on the front of the card with lots of Spring Flowers in it.

Please pop along to the challenge blog to see the wonderful creations made by my Team Friends and enter if you can.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

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.

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.
