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


Sorry I have been missing again, I hurt my shoulder and couldn't type until now.

Slowly getting a lot better now, but age seems to hamper how long it takes to get better  I think.


As it's the 25th of the month it's time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at. 


As always it's anthing goes as long as it's Christmas.

One Entry Per Person, 

but you may put as many cards as you like on one post.

There is always a lovely prize for the person picked out randomly. 

So here are my two DT cards I made before I hurt my shoulder.


These are both 7"x7" size card.

The papers used are from a 6"x6" pad of Crafters Companion bought at the works last year.

The reindeer and sleigh die is a cheapy bought on Amazon, and cut out with white glitter card stock from Tonic.

The second card was also from the same paper pad and the snowflakes were from the Works and also the sentiment was from a 12"x12" paper pad bought last year from the Works.

These cards are not as highly decorated as I usually do as I thought the paper was too nice to cover up too much.


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.

Oh Jenny, I'm so sorry you hurt your shoulder but glad you are able to type again. You're right about taking longer to heal as we get older. That paper is gorgeous and the sparkly sleigh and reindeer look beautiful on it. The same with the snowflakes. I can see why you didn't want to cover it up.

I've hopped over from Rudolph Days to see your cards up close and the insides too. I wish I could get into the habit of finishing the insides as I go along, it would make it so much easier as Christmas nears. Beautiful cards and you're right, the paper is too pretty to cover up.

Two lovely cards for Rudolph Day again Jenny. I do like to see how you have done the insides. I am afraid my Christmas cards ahave very basic inserts. I like all the sparkle and snow.
Sorry to hear you have been injured. I hope the shoulder is better soon. Kate x

Your Rudy cards are so beautiful Jenny! I love papers you used and I love the sparkle of the deer and sleigh. Those layered snowflakes are just gorgeous, they certainly are merry and bright! Yes, age comes into play now, we just don't heal as fast as we used to because of age. Nobody said ever that aging is fun!! I hope that should keeps feeling better and better with each passing day my sweet friend! Hugs from me to you, Brenda

Hello, Jenny! I am sorry to read that you hurt your shoulder and I hope it is getting better each day. Your 7"x7" cards are beautiful - I have never made a large size like that and I imagine that are a true showpiece for the recipient! Gorgeous work as always! Happy Rudolph Day!
