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.
I do hope you are having a lovely Bank Holiday
weekend, and the weather is being kind to you.
We have had mixed weather here in my part 
of Kent a little bit of sun, and rain also.

I was out with my daughter and her fiance 
yesterday, and when I got home I was exhausted.
So a little nap was in order, but I spent nearly
2 hours asleep, and on awaking I suddenly
remembered I hadn't made my card for the
Rudolf Challenge yet, and it begins today, and
carries on till the end of the month.
So crafting was the order of the evening, and
this is what I created with the Sue Wilson Die
I won on her blog.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I embossed the die, and cut it out, and then 
rubbed a metallic rub -on in gold over the 
I have had this set of metallic rub-ons  for more
than ten years, so I suppose it's a little like the
new type of gilding waxes.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate each, and everyone.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Morning Jenny, A stunning card !! A very beautiful compilation, and the recipient of the Christmas card will be thrilled to bits. I'm loving your winning die-cuts especially with the metallic rub-on, and the pine bough and pine cone die-cuts are fabulous ( for the life of me, I haven't been able to get my pine bough die to cut properly yet !!). A stunning card !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
