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 all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and time, as I
know time is precious to all of us, especially at this time of year.

Well it's the 25th of the month, and time to join
Sarn HERE with her last Rudolf challenge of 
this year.
The challenge runs from the 25th to the end of 
the month.
So please try and join in as it's her last challenge.
Next year it will be taken over by Scrappymo.
So here are my entries into this fab challenge.

These are both 8"x8" size.
Not happy with the picture of the white one,, as
it has a cream tinge, but it is a lovely white.
I got the idea for the snowflake wreath from a 
U Tube Brother Scan N Cut tutorial.
I embossed my card with the Sue Wilson Holly
Swirls embossing folder.
I then used Versa Mark embossing ink all over it,
and then I brushed it all over with a pearly silver
mica powder.
I cut out lots of 2 different size snowflakes on
my ScanNCut, so much quicker than trying to
die cut them.
The 2nd card I used some lovely Hobbycraft
12x12 paper.
I cut out my Merry Christmas on the ScanNCut,
and then cut out some of the stamps and decoupaged them.

Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love. 

I would like to enter these into the following

Morning Jenny, Two really beautiful cards today, loving the first one, and the second one has given me a brilliant idea for using up all my little postage stamp sized images, you are a genius. The Merry Christmas done on your Brother ScanNCut is fab !!

Sarn said...

"Sue"???? Why did I call you Sue earlier when I know perfectly well that you're called Jenny! Please accept my apologies for the error . . . which will certainly have to do with the fact that I have not yet woken up today! xxx

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Oh Jenny, I so love all the elegant glamour of the first and the lovely vintage feel of the second!

The inside of your cards is always such a delight to view...must remember to go back to my goal of finishing the inside of my cards when i make them. That goal fell by the wayside when I started my hundred card bad!

Jacee said...

Great designs Jenny, love the embossing on the first and the vintage feel of the second, great designs!

Gorgeous cards Jenny, I love the snowflake wreath and the beautiful embossing behind it. I like the vintage images in the second card as well, and the way you have decoupaged some of them.

Hi Jenny
Fab cards but have to say , the first one is absolutely gorgeous. Love the idea of a snowflake wreath.
Now, how likely do you think it is that you could pass for a 10 year old lol?
Best wishes.

Carole Z said...

Hi Jenny, these are both gorgeous! I especially love the white card, it must have taken ages to make and is truly stunning, hugs Carole Z X

Erika said...

Hi Jenny, two beautiful Christmas cards there, love the crisp clean lines of the first and then the real vintage style of the second. I know what you mean about true colours of photos at this time of year, we've had quite a few really dark days where photography has been difficult. The joys of the winter months up north!
Happy hump day!

Hugs Erika. x

Sue said...

Stunning cards my beautiful fairygodmother....did Santa let you have your Scan N Cut early????? LOL xxxx lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hettie said...

These are stunning Jenny. Love that idea of the wreath.

Mrs A. said...

Two totally different and totally stunning cards. love them both. I saw the count down to Christmas calendar blocks in a Christmas shop last week but was too much of a cheap skate to buy one but I did have a good look to see how to make one for myself. Lol. hugs Mrs A.

Hallo Jenny
Wat zijn je kaarten weer schitterend .

Karen Petitt said...

So very sorry that it has been such a long time since my last visit Jenny - I am trying to sit upright for longer periods of time but my back isn't playing ball right now lol! OMG that first card is absolutely beautiful! I have a real weakness for snowflakes and any card that has die cut snowflakes, stamped snowflakes and sparkly bits is so up my street lol! The second card is wonderful too huni and I hope you don't mind me loving the first but snowflakes, butterflies and birds are always winners! I so envy you your Cut N Scan too - that will make die cutting a lot easier for you too - looking forward to seeing more of your lovely cards Karen x

Pamellia said...

Wow Jenny, these cards are both so gorgeous and yet completely different! The first one is so frosty, wintery and elegant, I love the monochromatic theme! The second one is vintage and country style, so full of many wonderful images and elements! I just love them both! Thank you so much for the wonderful comments you left on my blog while I was on holiday! I had a great time with my Mom! big hugs :)

Two beautiful cards Jenny. I don´t know much about Scan n cut but I guess it is similar to my silhouette. I like the big bold Merry Christmas on the second card, and all the lovely snowflakes on the first one. Sorry I am late posting. This is the only time I seem to have internet connection at the moment! Kate x
