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.

Good morning friends and visitors.
I hope this morning finds you bright eyed and bushy tailed.
May I say a big welcome to my new follower, and thank you 
for choosing my blog.
THANK YOU also  for all your wonderful comments.
I really do appreciate everyone that is made, by you very
talented crafty people.

Well after visiting lots of blogs and seeing the lovely array of
Christmas cards that are about, I started getting in a bit of a panic
as I haven't made many so far.
So here is one I have just made, so that's another one off the
list. lol.
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.
 Now the inside.

This card is an 8x8 size.
Matted with dark red card and some Christmas papers.
The image was a freebie off the internet, and coloured in with
I added some Flower Soft Polar white for the snow.
A bit of lace a ribbon and one of my stick pins I made.
The die cut round the image is the center of the Spellbinders
Ornate cross.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a very wonderful Tuesday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this in the following challenges.  Christmas.
