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.
Sorry I have been missing again, but I have been
baking for the Macmillan coffee morning which
was this morning.
We raised over one hundred pounds so all my 
efforts was well worth it.
Phew was I exhausted though after it all.
I made a Lemon Drizzle, Victoria Sandwich, 
and 36 cupcakes that were decorated as well.
I had to keep sitting down in between, as standing
for long periods doesn't help with my back probs.

Now today starts the Rudolf Challenge for 
September, and here is my entry.

This is a 6"x6" size Dovecraft Silver card.
I used the Crafters Companion embossing
folder from the Nordic Collection.
The papers are from the Crafters Companion
Nordic CD.
To make the Christmas Tree you just cut 4 
different size squares.
I did 4", 4"and a half , 5", and 5" and a half.
Then you fold them like tea bag folding, and 
assemble, and glue.
I have done this before, but I made a mistake
with this one, but I thought it still looked okay.

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

I would like to enter this into the following

This one is just fabulous too, lovely stacked tree on that marvelous silver embossed background. Loved the ribbon ties, and of course, as you always do, the inside is just as lovely as the exterior!
