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 missing, but my Daughter was on holiday from work last week, so my Daughter, Myself, and my Granddaughter had a lovely week enjoying each others company, and doing some shopping as us girls like to do.
We had a wonderful time.

So today is the start of Aprils Rudolf Challenge.
This runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month on Scrappymo's Blog HERE
All you have to do to enter is make a Christmas card, and enter it into the Challenge. 
It is a really fab way of getting some of your Christmas cards made.
So here is mine for this month.

This card is 8"x7" in size.
I drew around the largest die in the Sue Wilson Double Pierced Rectangles die, and then cut out my layers.
I used the Sue Wilson embossing folder Swirling Holly in the center, and used a gilding wax on it.
I stamped the design around the frame with Pine Needles DI.
Not happy with how it came out, but tried every way to get the design stamp, and the sentiment stamp to stamp better, but they must be faulty or something or maybe that's just how they are supposed to be.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I think the stamps are supposed to give an aged look and looks brilliant on this traditional coloured card. The gliding wax really brings out the embossed detAil and I love the ribbons and the gold embellishment and the pretty berries. Pleased you had a girly week with your daughter and granddaughter xx

Lovely green & cream, and the wonderful bow & that gorgeous holly...yummy looks and just perfect for Rudy Day. Love the way you've done the borders & matching inner embossing, and the red 'berry bling' certainly draws the eye right inward. Great card Jenny. TFS & Hugs
