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.
Sorry I have been away from my blog for so long, but I have been having trouble with my right shoulder, and typing was quite painful for me.

Today is the start of the Rudolf Challenge for February 2016.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month on Srappymo's Blog HERE
It's a fabulous way to get making your Christmas cards early so pop over, and join in the fun.
Here is mine for this month.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image, and the papers are from the Crafter's Companion CD Paintbox Poppets Winter Collection.
Which I recently got tempted to buy at just £2.85 and what a bargain.
I printed the image off  twice, and then cut away the center image, and decoupaged it to look more like a framed picture.
I also decoupaged the little girl and her teddy.
Isn't she soooooooooo! cute.
My stars are snippets, and the die cuts inside are made with snippets too.
So I am off to the playground with this also, and to to see what antics my playmates are up to this week.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I really do appreciate it as I know time is precious to all of us.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This card is beautiful, Jenny. You get so much more room with an 8x8 card. We can not get them here. You are so lucky. I have thought of cutting them from bristol board weight paper as that is the only thing I can purchase locally that would mimic card weight. Not sure how it folds though. Will have to give it a try as I love the look of your larger cards.

The decoupage is lovely looks like a framed picture!

Thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge. Good luck in the prize draw.

You had a real bargain with that CD. I have lots of them and I don't use them as often as I should. They can be really useful. You have don a great job with this one. I also love your beautiful 'insides'. I must admit I don't do anything this fancy inside Christmas cards. I make too many of them, but it does look really nice. Kate x
