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.

Well it's time for the
Christmas Challenge, and both Teams A and B are posting projects.
We would like to see anything but a card in your entries.
There are some lovely prizes on offer donated by my lovely team mates so it's well worth a entering if you have the time.
The Challenge runs for a fortnight and closes at 6PM on Wednesday the 3rd of Jan 2018.
So this is what I made for the challenge after seeing Jennifer McGuire video HERE.
So here is my version of that ornament.

I made a few mistakes on this.
I added too much snow to the shaker part.
The card I used on the outside was a lovely grey which I glued and glittered, but it doesn't show up much.
The ribbon also has lovely glitter on it too.
I also think I should have photographed it with a draker background.
I do hope you can join us for this challenge, but we may not be able to comment on your entries though.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

Super ornament Jenny.The colour is very gentle and I can see the glitter on both the card stock and the ribbon. You can't have too much glitter whether on the outside or inside the shaker ... lol! Hugs Christine xx

This is really lovely Jenny, don't put yourself down. Gorgeous in the silver and a really lovely die and a great addition with the snowflake and lovely flowers. Super creation.
I must admit anything but a card is my nightmare challenge.
