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 dear craft loving followers and visitors.
THANK YOU for all your lovely comments and good wishes.
I just love being part of this wonderful,  caring, craft community.
Everyone is soooooooo caring and helpful.

I thought for a moment I had lost my mojo, but it soon came
flooding back, thank goodness.
Well I have a confession to make I have only made family
Christmas cards this year.
For the rest of my  friends I bought them.
Oops I've used the B word. lol.

My card today is one I made last night.

Matted with red card and Dovecraft Christmas Papers.

I used the smallest Grand Decorative Circle and the smallest
Grand Plain Circle inside that.
The corners are Marianne Die.
The ribbons were from Tesco.

Everyone means a great deal to me.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty Monday if time allows.

Good Morning Jenny, Love this beautiful card, everything is just perfect.
I got a stunning card yesterday which I really love............!!!
I have felt the difference this year not "sending" so many cards.
A few still in the making but they will be delivered so no pressure.
Have a Fantastic Day

Morning Jenny, Like you, I only make the family and neighbour cards, and buy the rest. This year I have made the family ones, but found 2 Anna Griffin kits I had bought a few years ago and never got around to, so I am in the process of putting those together (they may be finished for next year ha ha).
Your Christmas card is beautiful, love everything about it and the colours are beautiful.
I spent yesterday afternoon making my Great Grandson's 6th birthday card, his birthday is the 16th, and like you, I sat there in my craft room thinking what on earth can I make, so I ploughed through my Cuttlebug children's dies and did a card for the pirate ship and had some chipboard letters which I used for his name, I much prefer girlie cards, when it comes to boys my mojo goes ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
