RUDOLF DAYS CHALLENGE....DT CARD FOR MARCH 2021

 

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

Sorry I have not been about much again still having a few ongoing health issues.

 

As today is the 25th of the month its's time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 

SCRAPPYMO'S BLOG

The challenge runs till the end of the month and

One Entry Per person.

As always it's anything goes as long as it's a Christmas creation.

There is always a lovely prize for the winner too.

Making a card and entering can save you time when it gets closer to Christmas as well.

Here is my  DT cards I made this month.

 


The first card is an 8"x8" in size.

I used Anna Marie Christmas papers from and 8"x8" paper pad.

I cut out Anna Marie's holly die in glitter card and some more of her paper.

Added a flower arrangement, some foilage, and some pearls to the holly leaves.

The Red Rudolf is from my stash.

The second card is a 7"x5" size.

I used a Crafters Companion 3d embssing folder on gold card which was a freebie with my Anna Marie order.

She always puts a freebie with an order.

The sentiment is a Creative Expressions one given to me by Maureen.

The poinsettias I bought from Amazon and the holly leaves are a very old die which is a Sheena die.

I just inked through the die with gold pigment ink to give the veins of the leaf.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

MASCULINE BIRTHDAY CARD

 

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

 

Well it's the weekend again so soon the weeks seem to fly by.

 

I have a masculine card to show for a change.

I made this for my Grandson who loves to go fishing, he had all my husbands fishing gear after he passed so it was not wasted.

 


This is a 8"x8" size card.

I made the Kraft card from 2 A4 pieces of card stock as I had some kraft envelopes left over from another set of cards.

I matted it with matt silver card and the basket weave paper is from Tattered Lace.

The image is a Hunkydory one from one of their books.

I used some snippets of green mirri card I had for the other matts.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I reall appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

BIRTHDAY CARD AND BOX

 

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

 

I do hope everyone is keeping well and safe.

I am back today to show you a card and box I was asked to make recently for a friends Son to give his girl friend as she loves Sausage Dogs.

 



This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.

I found the paper on the internet and thought it would be perfect.

I decoupaged the Sausage Dog in the centre of the Card.

Made some red flowers from dies I have and added some red wooden heart buttons from my stash.

The circle die is a Tattered Lace one, and the Happy Birthday one is a Paper Boutique die.

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.

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.
