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.

Just in case you don't get chance to pop by again before Christmas.

May I wish everyone a.
                    A MERRY CHRISTMAS
 Good morning to my dear blog friends and visitors.
Thank you for all your wonderful comments.
I really do appreciate everyone that you make.
If you are a visitor don't be shy I would love you leave me a 
comment even if you don't join my blog.

Well I managed to do some crafting yesterday and this the last
Christmas card  I had to do for the residents that live in the sheltered housing flats that is nearly next to my bungalow.
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.
 Now the inside.

This is an 8x8 size card.
Matted with Dovecraft Metallic Pearl card and the papers were
from the paper pad I bought from Hobbycraft called Dessert Blooms.
The Digi calender image was from Pink Gems, matted onto the
Decorative Circles Die.
I added some cotton crochet lace I bought many moons ago
under the circles,  and threaded ribbon through it that I won on
a blog hop.
The corners are Marianne Creatables, and I used some sock and
wooden tree embellishments from my stash.
Thank you again for your visit especially at such a busy time
of the year.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday, please try not to
panic if your not ready for Christmas.
So what if you forgot the Turkey or Christmas Pudding. lol
I only eat Chocolate at Christmas anyway. lol.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Morning Jenny, This card is beautiful, love the compilation and the colours are gorgeous, loving the month as the focal point.
The food shopping, at this time of the year, is horrendous, am not looking forward to doing the 'fresh' shopping this weekend !!!! I wouldn't be bothered if it was just hubby and me, but we are having visitors this year, so the panic has set in ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
