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.

Good morning to all you wonderful talented people and visitors.
I hope you all had a fabulous Tuesday, and the weather was kind
to you.
I feel very lucky that you choose to visit my humble neck of
bloggland  and leave such wonderful comments, when there is
such a wealth of talent else where.

My post today is my attempt at Patricia's bag.
I thought I would make a Christmas one.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

This was made out of A4 card as I didn't have 12x12 card
I used Spellbinders Label One Die to cut out the bag.
If you would like to learn how to make this go to.

Good morning Jenny, I can see you sitting at the top of the class along with Wilma and Christine when Patricia see your bag it's beautiful and your Christmas take on it is great, they are those little bags that you can make for all seasons. Just think of Easter little bunnies on them where you have your snowmen and holly. Hazel

Good Morning Jenny,
Yep! Hazel is right 10 out of 10 join Wilma and Christine at the top of the class.
Your bag is fantastic, love it in the Christmas theme.
Beautiful, who ever gets that will be thrilled.
Thank you so much for putting the link on your Blog.
I have quite a lot of comments on that bag but would you believe that I have something like 130 hits on that particular post/tutorial

I use the 12 x 12 only to be able to use the waste for all the "Roses"
I sold 4 of these yesterday when I did my talk. I actually think I could have sold more.
Have a Fantastic Day

Great little bag Jenny - wonder what would be in there??? Naturally it would be something scrummy. They are such a good idea and so inexpensive to do as well so a few choccy buttons would be a good idea!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
