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 do hope you have all had a fabulous weekend.

Thank you for all your comments on my last
card. I am so glad you all liked it so much.

Well I got my thinking cap on again for this
I hope you like it, and the colours come out on
your computer as vibrant as mine.
The red card I used was from a batch I bought
from Lidls supermarket thanks to Mrs Ducks
info on it. So thank you Mrs Duck for pointing
me to this fab buy.


Now the inside.

This is an 8"x8" size card.
The papers I used were from a Robert Addams
Christmas CD.
I remembered a couple of years ago on C and C
Chloe showing a beautiful card with  this 
pleating technic, so I thought I would have a go.
My shape is different to the one shown on 
C and C, but that's where I got the idea.
I did this with a Hougie Board.
I decided to stamp and heat emboss the Grand
Circle I had cut out.
I added a Pink Gem Calender to the center,
and inside.
I also stamped the verse inside too.

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

Fantastic card Jenny, really bright, certainly a "Statement Card" I love it.
I have not used that particular sheet of card from my stash of Lidl card yet.
Did you manage to get any of the patterend stuff??? It was really great as well, have made loads of boxes with a combination of both.
Happy Crafting

Morning Jenny, I love this card, the colours are really gorgeous, fabulous Christmas colours. Loving the pleated rosette, and also the Pink Gem Calendar, I must visit their website as I love that.
I must echo Patricia's enquiry about the display stands they are really pretty.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
