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.
Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I didn't get to mind my Grand Children yesterday
as I was not well when I got up.
So they went to their clubs they usually go to 
when Mum, and Dad are working.
As the day moved on I felt much better thank 

Today is the start of the Rudolf Challenge over
at Scrappymo's blog.
This runs from the 25th of the month to the end
of the month, and it's a great way to get some of
your Christmas Cards done early.
So here is my entry.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used a black A3 card to make my card. and
layered it with Creative Expressions Vintage 
Gold card.
My rose is one I made a few years ago out of
a old damaged book.
The holly die is a Sheena Douglass one which 
I cut out in black, and gold.
The sentiment was stamped in black ink on a
Couture Die.
The recessed die is a Tonic one.

Thank you again for your visit, and your 
wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Another elegant and gorgeous card. Love the printed flower with the dusting of gold color. These dies are just so luscious and the color combination you've selected looks stunning together. I love the way you've inset the intricate die, with the edging on the solid pieces. Adding the leaves to that flower is just more gorgeous detail. Truly magnificent, Love it! TFS & Hugs
