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.

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors. 
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my last creation.
I really do appreciate the time you spend visiting
me, as I know time is precious to all of us.
For my few loyal friends who visit nearly every time I post something, Thank You from the bottom of my heart for your very loyal support, because 
your support and visit makes blogging all worth

Now today I have 2 Christmas cards to show
you for a wonderful challenge that starts today,
and on the 25th of every month over at Sarns
blog which you will find HERE
This runs till the 28th of the month, and you 
need to create 2 Christmas creations to enter.
So think this means by the end of the year you
will have at least 24 Christmas cards already
made. YAY this has to be a winner in my book,
as I leave my cards till the last minute every
year. lol.
I can also join in the Snippets Playground as I
have used some snippets in both of these.
Sorry but there are a few photos in this post.


I decided to make this word book which you
may remember were very popular about 4 or 5
years ago.

Now the inside.

The papers for these were printed onto card, and
from a Debbie Moore CD called The Crackerbox
I do love the image of that mouse with the full
tum after eating all that figgy pud. lol.
Now I think we can all relate to this at sometime
over the festive season. lol. 

Thank you again for your visit and time.
I do hope you like my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter these into the following
Rudolf Day

Gracious, you are really on top of Rudolph Day with these 2 labor intensive cards! Looks like a lot of work with all the dimension you have going with each one of these. So much for the eye to look around & enjoy on these cards. I have to confess, though, my fav is the rotund mouse who has obviously enjoyed his figgy pudding. These are wonderful. Way to go. I'm still wondering if I can get 2 cards ready to enter!!! TFS & Hugs

Morning Jenny, Stunning, Stunning, Stunning !! I thought at first, Christmas cards !!!! but what a fabulous idea, and you will definitely have your Christmas cards in the bag haha. I started out 2014 by saying that I would make a Christmas card every month, we are now nearly in March and I haven't done one yet hahahaha.
I especially love the Xmas 'word book', I haven't come across these before, but this is so, so effective, I love it. The second card is so cute, I'm loving the little mouse with his big tummy after scoffing the figgy pudding. Truly stunning cards, Jenny.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
