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.
I hope your week has started off really good
so far.

Thank you again for all your wonderful 
comments on my last creation.
I am ever so happy you like it even though
I have shown you so many of the same style
card and box.

I have visited sooooo many blogs that have
made Christmas cards, so I thought it was
about time I made an effort. lol.

So hear is my very first of many I hope.
I made a similar one last year and liked the 
design soooooo much I decided to make 
another one in a different colour.



This is my usual 8x8 size made from A3 card.
The papers are printed off a Robert Addams
The December image is a precoloured one
from Pink Gems.
I have added some crochet cotton lace from
my stash.
Some black stones also from my stash, and
some wooden Christmas trees I bought in
B and Q quite a few years ago.
Oh and a little bell on a piece of gold elastic. 

Thank you again for your time and visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Morning Jenny, I don't even want to think about the 'C' word ha ha, I'm usually doing mine in December, and I am still in 'summer' mode ha ha. I know lots of peeps are 'organised', but I'm not one of them ha ha.
Your card is beautiful, I love the backing paper and love the focal element, it is really gorgeous, and as always, the inside is just as gorgeous as the outside.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
