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 very lovely friends, and visitors.
I am so sorry I have been missing for nearly a 
month, but I had family staying, and my DH and
I have not been well.
Hubster is still a bit poorly, and still has a nagging
cough which won't allow him to sleep.
We had a nice quite Christmas, and I did manage
to make a few Christmas cards in that I needed
for certain people. 
So here is one of them.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper is from Hobbycraft, and I cut the 
swirly center piece with the ScanNcut.
The paper is a new one I have never used before
so I can join Darnell and her Nimbus challenge.

Thank you for all your good wishes, and some
of you said you missed me so that was music
to my ears, to know I was missed. 
Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following

A beautifully festive looking card Jenny. You seem to have mastered your super cutting machine, that centre piece is fabulous.
Sorry to hear you have been unwell and I hope both you and your hubby are feeling better now.

Bummer on the not feeling so pert situation. I certainly hope that both of you are feeling MUCH, much better by now. Thanks for the beautiful JL cards you sent. I love that site! Am glad you were able to enjoy the holidays with your family, and hope the punies held off until everyone had departed. Your card is just stunning with that big bright red swirl. Very dramatic. And of course you always have the inside just as pretty as the outside. I should follow your lead on that! Hope that your New Year was a good day for each of you and that cough has dissipated a bit. I can identify with that, and it does disturb sleep, and not just for the one who is coughing. God Bless, TFS & Big hugs.

I see I should have read this one first, Jenny. I'm sorry that your hubby is still suffering from the cough, disturbing both your sleeps. And when you're tired, it affects everything. I hope he gets over it soon! This card is also a gift and so spectacular, outside and inside! Thank you for also entering this card in my NBUS Challenge! You take care of yourself! Hugs, Darnell
