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.
Today starts another Rudolf Challenge over at
This month I am one of the Guest Designers for this wonderful challenge.
As usual it is anything goes as long as it's a Christmas Creation.
Please pop over to Scappymo's blog to see the lovey and wonderful designs my other GD have created.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
So here is my GD creation.

This is a 8"x7" tent style card.
The red spotted paper came with the Hunkydory Large Christmas Decoupage kit.
The musical paper is from a DCWV
Butterfly Garden paper pad. 
I inked the edges with Fired Brick DI.
I used part of the Choir boys decoupage from the kit, and dcoupaged them.
Then I made tag to go into the pocket I had created with the musical paper.
Lastly I made a poinsettia from Sizzex's Susan's Garden Poinsettia Die coloured it in with FBDI and Pine Needles DI for the leaves.
I then used some Gold Stickles in the centre of the leaves, and added some other die cut leaves to make up an arrangement.

Thank you so much for your visit, and I do hope you can join us with this super challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I do like the tag idea on the front with the split pictures and the brilliant idea of a separate smaller card inside. Looks great. Hugs Mrs A.

Kathleen said...

Very striking card and love all the red and gold and a lot of care and attention gone into the making of this card.
I was a choir girl but was told to mime as I was there just to make the numbers up, not for my voice, my Mother always used to say I was a good singer before tunes came out.
Right off to prepare my RD post next.

Wow, what an awesome card for Rudolph Day! I love the images you used. I've never made a card that big before. Over here we tend to make A2 cards (4.25 x 5.5") or a 5.5" square card so this looks amazing to me! Well done! Whoever receives this will be very impressed!
