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 part of blog land all my
friends, and visitors.
Well as I can now tell you a secret I had to keep
for a week, but if you belong to the Create and Craft Club you may already know that they chose
me to be their first Club Crafter of the Month.
I had been sending in photos of some of my cards
for the Spellbinders Gallery and the Tattered Lace
Gallery, and they asked me if I would like to be
their first Club Crafter of the month, of course I 
said yes, and I got a £20 credit for doing it.

On to my card for today, this a Christmas one I 
have just finished.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The patterned card was from Hobbycraft.
I used the Sue Wilson Austrian Die Innsbruck.
The pine cones and the fir branches, are Spellbinders Fall Foliage, and I did shape them,
but they look flat in the photo.
I stamped the sentiment, and also stamped the
ivy around it.

Thank you for your visit, time and the wonderful
comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.
