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 hope everyone is safe and well.
Well it's the 25th of the month already, and time for the.
over at
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
It runs till the last day of the month, and you can win a lovely prize as well, as getting your Christmas creations made early. 
Here the card I made this month for my DT.
This is a 8"x8" size card.
The white non shed glitter card was from Hobbycraft.
The pale pink card is Carnation Crafts.
The bauble die was sent to me by Maureen so I thought I would use it this month.
Just added some snowflake pearls and some pink pearls that matched the colour card.
Made the Poinsettias from a Robert Addams die I won on the Pixies Snippets Playground many years ago.
The sentiment is a Sue Wilson one which if I remember correctly Maureen also sent me a few years ago also.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really love that you find time to visit me when I haven't had time to blog myself.
Still having a few health probs, and  it takes me so long to get my house work done and when it's all done I am exhausted.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hello Jenny
Your card is a shimmery delight of soft colours and pretty dies!

Too fun that you were able to use those dies I went for part of your design. That made me happy!

Love the design you made and of course, the way you finished up the inside of your card. You are always so good about those details.

Hi Jenny, of course you may copy my moon card for your son's birthday. I would be honored.

KT Fit Kitty said...

Hello, Jenny! Your card is so pretty! I like the ornament and flowers! I also like how you finished the inside of the card! Have a wonderful day!

Vicky Hayes said...

I love that you used a non-conventional colour scheme for your card Jenny and I love how shimmery and frosty it looks. Do take at least a couple of days off from housework if you're having health issues - the world won't end if it doesn't get done every day. Be very, very kind to yourself! Sending hugs, Vicky x

Hi Jenny, you’ve made such a beautiful christmas card! I love the colours and how you always finish the insides to coordinate with the fronts of your cards! Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. I’m constantly balancing activity and rest so i agree with the others - take care of yourself first and anything else can wait. Unless creating of course, because it’s good for you. :)

Darnell said...
