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, and craft loving friends.

Also a welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Sorry I haven't managed to visit this last couple of days after the mammoth task of the photo taking, and posting of my memory album I have been having trouble with the top of my spine, and this affects my right hand, and using my mouse.
I have tried to use my left, but I just can't seem to do that.

Well it's the 25th of the month, and time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at Scrappymo's blog HERE
This month it's my turn for the DT card.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
Maureen offers a lovely prize to the winner too, and it all adds to your cards made for Christmas which is a good thing of course.
So onto my DT card which was a quickie this month because of my commitment to the Memory Album.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The glitter card came from the pound shop, and the Christmas hats from The Works, the stamped sentiments were from a some stamps I bought from The Works quite a few years ago, and they were £1 for 9 stamps, and they are brilliant to use too. 
What a bargain.
The stamps were stamped with memento Lady Bug ink.  

As always thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

This is just lovely Jenny, less work than your previous one lol, love all the little images and your design, Kate x

Lots of adorable details on this shimmery & sparkling card. Love that felt hat with the glitter of the green holly and the red pearl berries. I'm happy to see that sometimes you do 'quick' cards, as normally you have such intricately designed cards. This is equally lovely and shows you're great with either style. Good luck working on the album. It's a labor of love and will become a treasured heirloom, I'm certain. TFS & have a super week. Hugs

Kathleen said...

Some fabulous images Jenny, love the silver glitter and the red and white colours really stand out against it.

Beautiful chrismassy card Jenny. I just love Christmas it's just a shame I don't have finances to go with it lol. So sorry you're still suffering. Hope it eases for you a little xx

Brenda said...

I can't use a mouse left handed either and I'm left handed. They just don't make a mouse to be used left handed. lol I hope the top of your spine is better soon Jenny. Your card is adorable! I love those cute little stamps and those hats. Too cute! I love that you can get glitter paper from the pound shop, I am loving that you have a pound shop. lol Hugs, Brenda

That Memento Lady Bug ink sure looks good here. i need to remember to use some colours as I forget I have a stack of them!
The glitter paper looks so good here and the price was sure good. Over here, glitter card is very expensive...about 3 dollars or even more.
I like the trio of stamped images and the holly green sure pops up on the page.

Thanks for always being such a reliable design team member...even when you neck is sore and your hand is numb!

A lovely bright Christmas card. Always worth checking in The Works I find - there is usually something I 'need'. Their dies are a good price and cut well but unfortunately my local one doesn't have very many - that said it is probably just as well!! Hope your back soon improves.

great card made with so many bargains! Happy RD xxx

Hi Jenny, I hope you are resting up and your arm/hand and neck are all feeling better. A lovely sparkly Christmas card for your stash, glitter card is very expensive down under, even in $2 shops. Have a wonderful week... Megan

Bonnie said...

Love these felt Santa hats, Jenny! How clever and so perfectly fitted around the Christmas postage stamps!

Liz said...

Gorgeous card, Jenny, I love all the sparkle. The stamps are perfect and what a bargain. Hope you'll soon be feeling much better. xx
