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 my blog all my craft loving
friends and visitors.

May I say a big welcome to my latest follower,
and thank you for becoming a follower, and I
hope you like what you see, and return many 

Thank you every one for your wonderful
comments on my snippets cards.

I am on a roll now and decided to make a small
box and 6 small Christmas cards to go inside.
All out of snippets from my other cards I have 
Now those of you that know my work know I
find it very hard to do minimal. lol.
Well wallah I think I have managed it this 
time. lol.


This little set is just under 4 inches square.
The Christmas Tree Die was a freebie with a
crafting magazine.
I embossed  the front of my cards with the 
Special Touch Mica Mask Ivy Background.
Now I don't think this looks like ivy at all, 
more like small leaves.
Added a gold Christmas peel off and wallah
a quick and easy project.
I also stamped a little Christmas verse inside
with gold pigment ink, but I forgot to 
photograph it.  Too eager to show you peeps.

Thank you again for your visit.
I do hope you all managing to craft lots! and lots!
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I'm extremely proud of you Jenny. CAS ! Who'd have believed it. You've made a great job of these. They look really great. See, you said you couldn't do it! I've just been playing with this die too. Nice to see it on an actual card. Love and hugs from Christine xx

Morning Jenny, Love it !!, these little Christmas cards and box are beautiful. I am the same as you, with me it is 'more is more' and I too, find it hard to do 'minimal'. This gives me a brilliant idea for little things for our Church Christmas Fayre in November, I must give this a try.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

These are gorgeous Jenny although I must admit I always find it very difficult to emboss with the Special Touch masks - maybe I need more shims. These are brilliant little cards and so very useful - a marvellous little gift.

Great set of cards, love the embossing and the tree die is fab, Envious of the box, as I can not make boxes for love or money.

Hi Jenny
Just read your comment before I hit the road and thought, had I missed something. . . . . . and yes, I had, these little gems! Gosh, we were in a similar mindset weren't we lol! We were both "on a roll" too hahaha!
Did see your die on a recent mag and was tempted. . . . Even more now I've seen your lovely set.
