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.

Spent yesterday looking after my little great grandson who is 7 months old.
He is so good, and no trouble at all, and I enjoyed every minute as he is such a content baby, my granddaughter had so much trouble with his sisters when they were little.
They didn't like shopping or the car, and used to cry,and play up while she
was either shopping or in the car going any where.
 I must admit I never had those problems with my 3 at all.
So perhaps I was one of the lucky ones.

Today I have another Christmas card
to show you.

This is a A5 size card.
I must admit I don't make many of this size card, as I do love square cards which you may have noticed.
Papers and the image are from the Crafters Companion CD Nordic Christmas.
I embossed the backing paper with 
the similar embossing folder, and inked the edges.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I was lucky too Jenny, my boys were both very good during the day although our youngest was a nightmare (in every sense of the word!!) at night and gave us three years of disturbed nights!! your card, the Father Christmas is so cute xx

Gorgeous Christmas card Jenny! I love the feel of that image, it's sort of part vintage, part young fun...reminds me of the Christmas specials on TV that I watched as a kid! Fabulous papers too. hugs :)

Beautiful card Jenny, the image is stunning.
I have had to open a new blogger as google plus messed with mine after I changed my background and all and I don't like the way the comments had to be made...the link to my new one is below and follow again to enter my candy...xx

Ooh this is a gorgeous card Jenny… what a fab santa image… it has a lovely vintage feel to it… and I love the scrummy paper and the fab embossed panel… the red with the kraft is really beautiful.

I love a kraft and red combo for Christmas Jenny and Santa is very cute too.
How lovely to have a wee great grandson to look after, having teenagers here who grunt lots a baby would make a refreshing change!
Enjoy your weekend, hugs Erika. x
