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.
Looked after my Grand Children yesterday as it's half term, and their other Nanny and Grandad have them today, and then my Son and DIL are on holiday for the rest of the week with them.

Having troubles with my back again.
It's slightly different this time around, as it doesn't hurt too much when I am sitting like the last time, just when I am moving about.

As I stated in my last post I bought a stamping magazine with lots of lovely Christmas stamps as a freebie.
So here is a card I made out of them, and a reminder that Rudolf day starts today and runs till the end of the month HERE

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I stamped the lovely fir branch all around the edge of the card, with Pine Needles DI, and then added the pine cones with Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.
The stamped image I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and coloured it in with Pro-Markers.
The sentiment is also from the same set of stamps.

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