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 craft loving friends,
and visitors that may just visit.
I do hope your weekend is going well, and you are experiencing good weather.
In my part of Kent it's been raining most of the night, and I'm not sorry it was, as we don't seem to get much rain in this part of Kent, and my water butt was empty.
Also when it doesn't rain for a long time I have 
to water my plants with a watering can, and that is not good for my back.

So as it's the 25th of the month it's time for the
Rudolf Challenge again.
This runs from the 25th of the month to the end
of the month on Scrappymo's blog HERE.
Please try and join us as it's a great way to get
some Christmas Creations made before all the 
rush of that season.
So here is mine.

This is a 8"x8" size tent card.
I used the the Christmas Squeeze Cards 
Christmas Cottage Delights CD for the image.
I decoupaged the letter box,and the Robin added 
some glitter to the snow.
I cut out the edges with a Sue Wilson Die.
Now this was too long for the area so I cut it
down a little and re-glued the ends.

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

I would like to enter this into the following

Super image on your Christmas card today Jenny. Even though we see robins all year round they are the quintessential Christmas image aren't they? Hope all is well with you and Tony. Hugs Christine xx

Love, love the bird! Love, Love the SW dies, and I really like the way you've used the striplets as mats! Really pretty. The lacy red over that white makes the red just sparkle and so pretty with this cute little fella perched on the post box watching for the cards to be mailed from that wonderful snow house. Great job Miss Jenny. Glad you are getting some needed rain. TFS & Hugs

Hi Jenny, Gorgeous !! I love the focal image, and the Happy Christmas medallion is lovely.
I'm so glad you are getting some much-needed rain, we get our fair share up her in the North haha, but I'm really happy to share it with you. It has been threatening here all day, kept trying to rain, but I believe we are due rain tomorrow, at least I won't have to water the plants hahaha.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
