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 all my very talented friends,  and visitors.

Sorry I have been missing again lately, just finding it hard to get everything done at the mo,
as I am on stronger blood pressure meds which 
make me quite sleepy throughout the day.
Still they seem to be bringing the blood pressure
down now at last.
I am also trying to do more walking to get fitter
after this years problems with my health, so that
should help too.
In any rate that's enough of my probs ,as there are
people out there with much worse off than me.
So I'm sending big HUGS to those in need of them.

Well it's Friday again and time to join Erika HERE with your Oldie for Friday so here is

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I borrowed the lovely Poinsettia stamp, and the 
Holly stamp from my niece last year.
I stamped the red card with a clear pigment ink,
and then brushed it over with a pearly mica 
powder to get this affect.
The poinsettias were coloured in with Promarkers,
and I used Pine Needles DI for the stamping of
the holly.

Thank you so much for you visit, time, and the
wonderful comments you make on my work.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY

This card is "proper Christmas" Jenny and I do love a poinsettia. I bought one on Christmas Eve last year in Tesco for £1, reduced (Guaranteed for 6 weeks). I only managed to kill it last month, so that was pretty good going!! I shall be buying another soon!! xx
