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.
Now if all goes well I have scheduled this post,
today for the start of the March Rudolf Day.
You will find the Rudolf Challenge over at 
Sarn's blog HERE    and it runs every month from
the 25th of the month to 28th of each month.
You need to make 2 Christmas cards to enter.
So here is my 2 entries, and I will link up when I get home as my sister does not have the internet.

 Now it is the first time for me making this style

Now the inside.

Ingredients for cards.
The first one I made on my Hougie Board.
The papers used on both cards were freebies
from a magazine.
I used a combination of stamped and digi images.
Di-mamics Dizzy Doily Die.
Sticky backed ribbon from my stash.
Forgot to mention that the green mirri doily 
was made with bits from my snippets box.

Thank you for your visit and sparing your 
precious time to visit me and make such wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Morning Jenny, I hope you are having a great time with your Sister.
These two cards are really gorgeous, I have never made any of the kinds of card with the twists and cuts etc, I tend to stick to the conventional style, but I really fancy trying the easel cards. Your cards are gorgeous !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Jenny
How on Earth did I miss this? Terrific as usual my dear. Haven't done one of the first style since I got my Hougie 2 years ago,as it was in the Hougie book. Thanks for reminding me what a cracking card it can make.
Hopefully catch you at the NEC next time.

Oh look! That first card is the Fancy Fred Fold (that's the name I gave it not knowing its real name). Yours was even fancier than mine and far more sparkly. There are so many wonderful things to look at on that card. The second card has a really neat design to it I love that doily die you used on it--so festive.
