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

Well it's the the 25th of the month already, and time for the last

Rudolf Days Challenge of this year over at.


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


There is also a prize to be won from the very generous Maureen.

As this is the last challenge for this year I would like to thank Maureen for having me on her design team.

I do so love this challenge as it gets my Christmas cards made early.

So here is what I created this month.

These are both 8"x8" size cards.

I decided to make two different wreath cards.

I cut out a wreath shape with circle dies and covered both of them with ribbon.

The first I used up some lovely wooden stags I have had from the Works for years.

They are actually tree ornaments.

I just popped a gem in the hole where the string for the hanger was.

The second I used some white and grey wooden snowflakes I recently bought from the Works.

The glitter sentiment was a purchase from the Works a couple of years ago.

Then I added some foam snow balls. 

Sorry the picture of the second card look a bit dark it's really quite white, but I couldn't get a decent photo of it.


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.


Well it's the 1st on f the month again, and time for a new challenge over at 


The host for this challenge is the lovely CAZ and she would like to see.

 Anything but a Card.

The challenge runs to the 29th of November 2021.

I decided to make a Christmas Tissue Box.


I make these tissue boxes with the box card left over from making my 8"x8" boxes.

The paper used is from the Works and was only £3 for a 12"x12" size pad and it's a super weight too.

Loved the scenes I used on the tissue box.

The top of the box I sprayed with Nuvo Mica Mist in 2 different colours.

The snowflakes are wooden and also from the Works and were £1 for lots.


Please go over to the challenge blog and see the lovely creations made by my team friends.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
