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 have been a bad blogger yet again, as I have had lots of family Birthdays and also family and neighbours have asked me to make cards too, and as you know I can't say no to anyone.

One card was for a lady who was having her pallet of her mouth removed so I just had to make one to cheer her up. 


As it's the 25th of January already it's time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 


I do so hope it is my turn to do my DT this month as I am not sure.

But as I last did it in November last year I presume it's my turn again as we do alternative months.

The challenge runs from today till the end of the month.

As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.


but you may put more than one card on the same post if you like.

There is always a lovely prize for the winner donated by Maureen too.

So here is what I made this month.


These are both 8"x8" in size.

The background dies are Creative Expressions Paper Cuts Dies.

The fir branches and pine cones are Sizzix.

The coloured rainbow mirri card is Tonic.

I paper pieced the Deck the Halls in the blue to make it stand out more.

Thank you so much for you visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment especially as I am such a bad blogger too.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Beautiful cards and your paper piecing makes that sentiment pop xxx

These cards are simply beautiful with the blue and red mirri card on each one. Those pine cones are wonderful arrangements on each design and all those blue gems on the corners look stunning and festive! I hope you're feeling well these days and I wish better days ahead for the woman after her mouth surgery. I cannot imagine what she's facing after that. Hugs for the January Rudolph Days!

Bonnie said...

These are so classy, Jenny! I love that foil on the outside and inside! I'm amazed at the photos too. It's so hard to get the shine in a picture without the glare or showing up as black! Two, super awesome Christmas cards!

Sue said...

Two stunning cards my lovely fairy godmother! I hope you are keeping well lots of hugs and sloppies xxx Sue xxxxxxxx

Vicky Hayes said...

I love how shiny these are Jenny. You must have had the patience of a saint paper-piecing that sentiment and it looks fantastic! Vicky x

Brenda said...

I've been a bad blogger too Jenny, but at least you are doing for others! I'm just having issues getting motivated. Call it lack of mojo or just tired from the Christmas makes, hard to say. Happy Rudy Day! I LOVE your Rudy cards! They are gorgeous and so fancy. The mirror card is so beautiful on each one, love the die cuts and those pinecones and pine boughs. The gems on the corner of the blue one are so pretty. Both cards are gorgeous and I'd say you knocked this Rudy day out the park! Hoping to join in, trying to start this year off right. lol Lots of love and hugs from my house to yours, Brenda
