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.

I do so hope everyone is fit and well, and are not suffering with this dreadful virus.
Good job us crafty people have our crafts to help us pass the time.

It's the 25th of the month and time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 
The challenge runs to the end of the month.
As always anything goes as long as it's Christmas .
Maureen always has a lovely prize on offer, and you get your Christmas cards made throughout the year. 

For my DT this month I made 2 cards back in January ready for this month.


These are 6"x6" size cards.
Decided to go Shabby Chic with my designs this time around. 
I suppose with all the layers they could be called Mixed Media too.
I used lots of white texture paste on them both and on the 2nd one I also added Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter to the top.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment made.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

The texture of the snow is beautiful on your first card. Love the snowballs. I love the glitter and shine on the second card. The decorated tree is gorgeous. Two fantastic Christmas cards. Be safe.

The first card is stunning with those shabby chic elements and what looks like tiny snowballs! I love the lacy crocheted look of the piece behind the ribbon and especially that "hidden" bunny within the paper! Gorgeous! The 2nd card is equally lovely with that overall sparkle and shimmer! Beautifully crafted and designed and happy Rudolph Day!

These cards are something a bit different - very effective with lots of interest on each of them.

Hi Jenny. Two beautiful cards again this month. I am loving the shabby chic look you used here. I think that texture paste is perfect with thos look and love the way you combined it with glotter to create the feeling of snow.
It looks so real!

Thanks for always being a great Design Team member!
