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 a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that just pops by to view my work.

Now I am really late with this entry into the Rudolf Days Challenge
 over at
The challenge ends tomorrow so I am just making it.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas and 
So here is what I made today.

The wreath image was on a Christmas card I was given this year, and I thought it was too nice to throw away so I cut around it and made a easel card with it.
I used lots of snippets to make the base of the easel, the stopper, and the centre greeting, and the pieces out of the base die cut.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
It is always appreciated very much.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Gorgeous card Jenny, the recycled topper is beautiful and I love the red glitter and circular easel design. Genius idea using the 'waste' from the die cut to decorate the stopper !
