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.
Back last year I was entering the Rudolf Challenge over at SCRAPPYMO'S  blog and she asked for people that would join her Design Team she had quite few people apply so she decided to have all of us as her DT and split us up into, one talented team for the first 6 months and another talented team for the last 6 months.
So I will be providing a DT card for 
July, September, November, as my part of her DT.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end  of the month.

This design card is a kit from CraftsUprint, and you print it off, and put your own little tweaks to it.
I added extra card to make it firm as I hate floppy easel cards.
I also added some poinsettias made from a Robert Addams Die that I won on the Snippets Playground ages ago.
The poinsettias were cut out of snippets of card so I will be joining the Snippets Playground with this as I haven't managed to enter for a few weeks now.

I do hope you can enter a card into the Rudolf Challenge, and visit my Team friends to see their lovely creations.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is gorgeous Jenny. The poinsettia colour is so vivid and looks so realistic. The base reminds me of a China plate from the front angled photo. I love all the little extra embellishments that you've added too, it's such a beautiful card. You've really done Mo and her design team proud. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

What do you mean "one lot for the first 6 months and the others for the last 6 months"
Surely it should have been one fabulous team for the first 6 months and the another fabulous team for the last 6 months!
Brilliant creation, great shape of card and that looks like one stunning vibrant poinsettia.
