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.
Well we are moving into January quite nicely now.

Thank you for all your good wishes and comments.
I very much appreciate every one.

Sorry I have another Christmas card to show you,
as I have made a few while not blogging.
I live in a bungalow in a sheltered housing complex, and there is a block of flats on this 
complex which houses about 36 retired residents.
So this is the card I made for everyone that lives there.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are Hobbycraft again, and I cut out
the large snowflake with my scanNcut.
I must admit the scanNcut does make short work
of lots of projects, and this card was made very
quickly in less than an hour.
I used some snippets of red card for the background of the Merry Christmas and the 
inside stars, so I'm off to join in the antics of the
playground after a absence to a few weeks.
As this paper was a never before used one, I am 
joining Darnell in her Nimbus Challenge too.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Jenny, I never get tired of seeing beautiful Christmas cards. And this is definitely one! How industrious (not to mention generous & kind) of you to make so many of these to send some pleasure to your neighbors. I don't know some of the terminology you mentioned about 'sheltered housing', but I'll guess that is similar to what I'd call a retirement community, like we have in the USA. Your card is so pretty with that dimensional & bejeweled snowflake. I'm always awed by the fact that the inside is just as pretty as the outer part of the card. I expect your recipients will display these so proudly. Good for you. TFS & Hugs. Hope both of you are feeling all better now.

Kathleen said...

Good grief Jenny how many gems must you have in your stash! Great card.
