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.

Sending big hugs to those of you in need of a hug this morning, as I know a few friends that are in need of this.

Today I am posting my Rudolf Challenge card.
Now I thought I couldn't enter this month as I am one of Scrappymo's design team this year, but Mo let me know I can enter this month, and not from next month when I start.
So here is what I am entering this month.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is from Squeeze Cards Christmas Cottage Delights CD.
I matted and layered the image, and then added some suede ribbon to the side with wooden snowflakes on top. 
The sentiment is a stamp from LOTV, and is embossed with Sea Foam White embossing powder which I have had for years.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I love this Jenny, it reminds me of being a child at Christmas, it's such a sweet image and looks wonderful mounted on the red card. I love the snowflakes down the side too as they add extra interest and again, they really pop against the red background. Congratulations on your DT role, you'll be a real asset to Mo's team. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

This adorable snowman card is lovely. What a great idea to use the red suede ribbon down the right side with the snowflakes! I really like the look of that!
Thanks for taking part in the June Rudolph Days Challenge!

MaryH said...

Congratulations on being a Rudy Day DT. This is a delightful scene on your pretty card. Love the bright & cheery red.. those snowflakes trailing on the side, look quite icy. Easy to see these kids are having such fun building this snowman. Nice to see some chill on a hot day. A very pretty design on this one, and as usual, the inside is so pretty as well. TFS & Hugs (saw Mo's comment about the suede ribbon, scrolled back up to have a closer look. I thought that was cardstock until a closer look shows that velvet texture. Brilliant way to do the border!!)

Erika said...

A lovely traditional style of Christmas card Jenny.

Hugs Erika. x

Kathleen said...

Can't understand why this didn't show on my dashboard, weird.
Really lovely image and I especially like the little bit of snow for the kids to enjoy and not too much to keep us in.
Great snowflake border too.

Lovely traditional image and lovely snowflakes

A lovely card jenny. The CD images are useful for making cards for Christmas. The snowflakes and sparkle just finish it off nicely. I like the way you always take trouble with your inserts too. Kate x
