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 craft people and
THANK YOU yet again for your visit and comments, especially
at this time of year when we all are very busy preparing for 
Today I have my Christmas raffle at my club I run so I may 
be a little late visiting all of your blogs.
We break up for Christmas today and don't return till mid Jan.
This gives me and my friend that run the club a little break to
do what we have to do for Christmas.

I haven't a card today but another one of my versions of 
Patricia's bag.
You can find the tutorial here 

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.
 Now the side view.

I didn't have double sided card, but if you have it would finish
it off nicely.
I used the Grand Scolloped Squares to make my version.
Tomorrow this will be filled with sweets to go in the raffle.
I know I can hear all of you saying yum! yum!
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a very wonderful day, and that you are all
keeping warm and cosy in this cold weather we are having.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi Jenny, a lovely version of the gift bag, love the papers and design. I find they are very useful a lot better than bought ones.

Another super bag, love the colours and embellishing. I put my single sided card through the printer often just to give it a plain colour, I also overprint if I have too many papers of one design. xx Flora

Good Morning Jenny,
Your bag is beautiful, I love it in the Christmas theme.
Just goes to show how if you think things out any of these wonderful Dies we have can be used.
I have this Die must give a bag using it a go.
They are fantastic filled with 4 or 5 of these "Mini" travel products or sweets for Raffle Prizes. I have done so many and never heard anyone complain about winning one.
Have a Great Day

Patricia xx
