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.


Well it's the 25th of the month yet again, and time for the

Rudolf Days Challenge over at


The challenge runs from today till the last day of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.


There is a lovely prize for the winner too.

So here is what I made for my DT this month.


These are both 8"x8" in size.

On the both I used up some tags I made about 4 years ago to enter Lolls tag challenge she ran then.

Not sure if it still runs or not.

The first card is a mixed media design with lots of different layers.

The second card I stamped fir branches all over card for a background similar to the tag, and on the inside edges of the card too, and I also stamped the verses on both.

Couldn't find my lovely pearlised embossing powder to make it the same as the tag.

I added some lovely green Holographic card to the tag to match the matt and layer edge.

The Holographic Card is from 

Tonic and they sell some lovely colours in it.

The image on the tag is a Hunkydory one.

The mixed media one I can't rememeber where those images came from on the baubles.

I added Glossy Accents to each bauble.

The MDF Noel is from Anna Marie Designs.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comments you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Beautiful cards Jenny, it's great that you used those stunning tags you had stashed away - it would have been a shame to waste them, they make such wonderful centre pieces for your Christmas cards.
Hope you're keeping well.

Hello Jenny
You have made some lovely cards here.
The first card has such a lovely vintage feel.
the Santa image on the baubles is so pretty with the finish all frosty and shimmery. I love that particular Santa image too!
The use of texture on this card is perfect!
Your second card is so cute. The Tonic paper is fab...I am going to see if my local shop will order some in for me. They are bringing in a lot of new lines and they have some Tonic items at the mo.
Take care Jenny and know that your design teamwork is greatly appreciated!

Happy Rudolph Days, Jenny! oh my goodness, I think you've outdone yourself with attention to detail! I love all the texture and the variety of images on the first, I always struggle with that, and the second one, oooh, I love the die cut greenery (where can I find it? lol), the hologram paper and the adorable snowman.
