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.
May I welcome my newest followers, and thank 
you so much for choosing to follow me, and I do hope to see you as often as you can manage it.

Thank you soooooo! much for patience with my
I shall try, and get round to most of it tonight, and
tomorrow night as I have to look after my 2
Grand Children tomorrow.
No baking though as Mum says they will all be
getting fat if we keep making such delicious cakes.

Yesterday was very busy, as the fete was from 
12pm to 4pm, and then afterwards my daughter
had invited us to a barbecue at her house.
So I was exhausted when we arrived home. 

Now on Tuesday it's the Rudolf Challenge again
and this snippets card came from the waste of
what I made for that challenge.
So I am so pleased I can join in the antics at the
playground this week with it.

This is a A5 size card.
Cream base card.
Black, and Creative Expressions Vintage Gold
card stock.
I used the Sue Wilson Embossing Folder 
Swirling Holly.
The inside sentiment is a stamped one heat 
embossed with old gold embossing powder. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to join in the following challenges
with this.

A beautifully elegant Christmas card Jenny, and a great way to use the negative part of the die cuts. I like the use of the red pearls too.

What a lovely way to use us your waste. Something I really get satisfaction from doing. I really like your colours and those red "berries". That's a really pretty embossing folder. Barbxx

Simply gorgeous waste! All you UK bloggers that showcase these wonderful SW products have me drooling, even though I've promised myself I will scale back on the die purchases. I see something pretty like what you've done on this card and I want that die! Love the way you've used this die as a focal image, and then accentuated it even more with the embossing shape behind the motifs. Very pretty and great design. The inside is just as lovely, and those colors are so very pretty, and I like the traditional treatment so much. A really wonderful look on this one. As always! TFS & Hugs
