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.
Just needed a little break.
I do hope you all had a lovely Easter, and plenty of Easter eggs were consumed yum, yum.

Today I have my entry into the Rudolf Challenge for March 2016 over at Scrappymo's Blog HERE.
Just make a Christmas card to enter, and it runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.


This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are from a 12x12 paper pad I bought from Hobbycraft.
Distressed the edges, and added some inks, and gold embossing powder.
Used some of Phill Martin's Chic Pumpkin texture paste also.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
They are all very much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.  

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Jenny, you've outdone yourself with all these vintage layers, edged with the rich gold. This is one of the best Christmas collages I've ever seen I think, with each element being just perfect to add to the overall design. Of course you made the inside just as stunning as the outer portion - especially liked that top corner treatment. TFS & glad you had a little blog break. Sometimes you need that! (I've been having sort of one myself!) Big Hugs
