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 and talented people and 
I am so glad you like my work and decide to visit me each day.
I really enjoy being part of our lovely crafting community.
There is soooooo much talent out there I feel very honoured 
to be part of it.
THANK YOU soooo much for each and every comment that
you make on my work too.

My Dad is a religious person so when I saw this freebie image
on the internet, I thought it would make a great Christmas card
for him.
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

Now the inside.

This is my usual fav size card 8x8.
Matted with white card and distressed with Faded Jeans distress
ink as I didn't have the right colour card, I also used some 
Christmas patterned card stock I bought yesterday.
I added a sticky ribbon to the top and bottom from my stash.
I cut a Grand Decorative Circle and a Grand Scolloped Oval
round the image.
As I said the image was free off the internet and coloured in
with Promarkers.
The sentiment was from Pink Gems and the Dad was from
the freebie in the Hunkydory Magazine.

Thank you again for visiting my blog.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend starting with today.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Evening Jenny, Your card today is beautiful, I am religious and this would be gratefully received by me, I love the image, it is just like a Church Stained Glass Window, absolutely stunning and beautifully coloured by you.
I have spent most of today selling at my Church's Christmas Fayre and yesterday afternoon/evening setting up, it was a brilliant day, lots of hard work for everyone involved, but well worth all the effort. I just want to get a bath and watch tv now ha ha !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
