Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and good morning to all my talented followers and visitors.
Well it's Wednesday, I hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday
and the sun was shinning where you live.
It was another fabulous day Kent yesterday the sun shone
all day.
I am so sorry if you had bad weather where you live, I will 
have a word with my friend the weather, and tell him you 
need a lovely day today. lol.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments.
I really do appreciate everyone.
Before I get to my card today I would like to mention a 
fellow blog person who only has a few followers and  could
do with some more followers, that is if you can spare 5mins
to check her work out. I think it's fab and deserves a few 
more followers.
 Now to my card today this another Christmas card I made
last year.

The ingredients for this is.
An 8x8 card stock.
Matted with Kanban card stock with holographic snow flakes
all over it .
The snowman and the sentiment are also from Kanban.
I pleated my ribbon in a zig, zag, fashion over a doily.
Added a bow and card board button on top, and a large
plastic snowflake with ribbon threaded through it, and 
another of the buttons.
I then finished it off with Cosmic Shimmer  Pearly Pva 
Glue Dots.
I hope you like my creation.
Thank you again for sparing your precious time to visit and
comment on my work.
Have a wonderful crafty Wednesday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Morning Jenny, I'm late today with the Blog hopping, have been watching Sue on C&C and spending more money !!!!
Your snowman card is gorgeous, at first I thought you had embossed the background card until I read the ingredients, it is beautiful, the ribbons look gorgeous, I absolutely love the cardboard buttons, I adore the jolly snowman, he is lovely and cuddly. Have a lovely day, I'm glad there is somewhere in the country that is getting sun ha ha !! it is that north/south divide yet again ha ha, you are getting our sun and we are getting your rain ha ha !!.
Lots of love from Patricia xx will pop across to have a look at your friend's Blog now xx
