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.
Today starts a new challenge over at 

It's not my usual fortnight to make a DT, but I stepped in for someone else on the A Team this time around.
The lovely Amy is your host and she would like to see Halloween on your creations please.
The challenge runs from today to the 
6pm on the 7th of November.
So here is what I made for my DT.

This is a 8"x6" size tent style card I made.
The papers are Graphic 45 from the Children's Hour 12x12 pad, and matted onto black, and orange card.
Looking forward to seeing your lovely Halloween creations.
Just pop along to the challenge blog, and see the lovely A Teams DT Creations.


Today also starts the Rudolf Days Challenge, and runs to the end of the month as always.
The challenge is anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
over at
Maureen always has a lovely prize on offer to the winner too, and it all adds to your Christmas card stash as well.
So here is my DT card, this is my last DT for this year as it's the other DT turn next month.
I have really enjoyed my last 2 years on the DT, and thank you so much Maureen for asking me to join the other wonderful DT members.
I felt very privileged to join such talented DT members.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The scene in the circle aperture is made up from a Hunkydory Christmas scene paper pad, and then I added a die cut Christmas image to the front coloured with Promarkers.
Then I added some stickles glitter glue for the snow.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Sorry this was a long post.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A lovely Halloween card and not spooky or scary, just done with gorgeoous papers. Wonderful, snowy scene for the Christmas card that just shines. I love all the snow on the inside that carries over the theme.

Brenda said...

Two amazing cards Jenny!!! I am loving the Halloween one. The papers are so beautiful, but then again G45 only does beautiful. I love the ribbon you used, it almost looks like a spider on the paper. lol The scene you have made on your Christmas Rudy card is so cute!I love how the paper looks like snow is falling and the glitter on the scene snow. So pretty!!!! Hugs, Brenda

Hi Jenny
Your card looks so pretty. I enjoyed the deign as well as I am always looking for ideas for corners and really liked what you did here! I think i even have that image and the blue speckled paper and the pearly blue paper in the corners!!! We must have the same taste in cardmaking supplies...

Thanks for working so hard for the Rudolph Days Challenge in 2018 and hopefully you want tostay on for next year too!

Your Haloween card is great. I love the design you chose...and then repeated that idea inside. It looks always!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Your Christmas card is so beautiful.

Darnell said...

Both your cards are gorgeous, Jenny, and so well representative of their respective holidays! I was on holiday for three weeks and hadn't heard about your hubby until Mo mentioned it on the Rudolph post. I'm sorry he's been ill-cared for, but hopefully now that he is receiving the extra goodies he needs to fight the anemia, he will feel right as rain soon enough! You take care of yourself, too!! Hugs, Darnell
