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.
I would like to welcome my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you can visit as often your time allows.
Thank you also to everyone that continues to visit me on a regular basis you are so very kind, as I do know time is precious to all of us especially at this time of year.

Well it's time for the Rudolf Challenge over at Scrappymo's blog, and this is the last one of this year.
This challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
So I have 2 cards to show this time.
I wanted to dabble in some sort of mixed media.
Not sure if it was successful though, perhaps you can enlighten me as this is a bit out of my comfort zone. 

These are both 8"x8" size cards.
This images are from the Crafters Companion Nordic Christmas CD.
The paper on the blue one is from the Pink Gem website.
The paper on the red one is from the Nordic CD.
I stippled some watered down Gesso on these so it looks like snow.
The red card I painted Gesso over glitter and glue to get the edge.
I do hope you like my dabble with mixed media of sorts.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny
A very gentle foray into mixed media. Subtle but very effective on these two magical cards.

I think both these cards are great. The images are fun and all the embellishments compliment them beautifully. Kate x

MaryH said...

I think you scored A+ with your mixed media efforts. The edges look wonderful, and I'm loving BOTH of these super cards. The moose on #2 just makes for smiles, and Santa & his prezzies on #2 looks ready to jump in his sleigh. The edges look like icy snow edges & you've got that mixed media mastered I think. Bet you had lots of fun too. TFS and Merry Christmas. Hugs
