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 your for your visit, and comments.
I very much appreciate them all.

I have been having a few lower back problems
for the last 3 days.
So I am so sorry if I haven't commented as much
as I should have.
I have been trying to rest it as much as possible, but on seeing a challenge that gives $4 for each card entered into the challenge, in aid of Breast
Cancer, how could I not make a card to go into
this fab challenge.
I have just made it too as the challenge closes at
They wanted to see pink in their Christmas Cards
so here is my version.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I embossed my card with the Sue Wilson
embossing folder Swirling Holly.
The sentiment is a digi pre- coloured image from
Pink Gems.
The little white poinsettias were made with a
die I won at the Snippets playground.
I used a double sided sticky sheet, and some 
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels Glacier Ice on
Now I used up lots of snippets for making the 
poinsettias, leaves, and the pine bough die.
So I will trot off to the snippets playground with this.

Thank you again for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
