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.

The weather here in my part of Kent is very drab today, so I do hope that where ever you may live the weather is being kinder to you.

As it's the 25th of the month Happy Rudolf Day to everyone.
The Rudolf Challenge starts today over at 
Now as I am on the DT and it's my rest month I thought I still want to make my Christmas cards so I can be well ahead with them by the end of the year.

These are both 6"x6" size cards.
 On the first I ink dusted my sky, and made a few snow hills, and then I stamped my Rudolf which was a stamp I was given by Srappymo as a DT present for being on her DT last year.
I coloured him in with Derwnt pencils, and then added some glamour dust to the hills.
The second was made with one of the freebie stamps with the stamping magazine.
Coloured in with Promarkers, and then I added some Stickles Glitter glue.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I really do appreciate them.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Oh my, forgot about Rudy Day (and wasn't sure with Maureen's schedule if we'd have one this month). A sweet way to use the wonderful stamp you received as a gift and your coloring is brilliant. This little leaper just glows. Loving the snow hills, and your sky too. I always love a pretty wreath, and this one is just decorated so beautifully. Two great cards for Rudy in February. TFS & Hugs

Love both these super cards Jenny. The little deer is really cute but my favourite is the beautiful wreath. The colouring is great and I love the sparkles.

OMGosh Jenny, I love both of these cards! The little deer card is simply adorable. I love the texture you gave his fur, not sure how you did it, but it looks to fabulous and I just want to reach out and touch it! The wreath is beautiful and I love the way you colored it too. The shadow looks so real as well, I thought for sure you had popped up that wreath and it was causing the shadow until I looked closer! Hugs, Brenda

Me again.
You forgot to link up to Rudolph Days. I am so late getting round to comment as my cousins just left...they were here for the funeral and stayed on for a visit as they live in another province.

Too bad I did not notice earlier...sorry!
