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.

Spotted this and the little girl in the  animated picture looks just like my little Great Granddaughter Ellie, and I do love the Red Cardinal and the Owl as well.
Hi and welcome I have been quite rough with my terrible cold I have, which has exhausted my energy levels.
Last night I didn't get to sleep till
 5 am  with coughing, and my RLS which was the worst I have had for a long time.
I am now totally behind with all my Christmas shopping and preparations since developing this cold.

Today I have a Quick Christmas card I made awhile back.

This is a 9"x6.5" in size I made.
The image is from Hunkydory.
I just love that wonderful image.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

It's time for Team B over at
and Jan is our lovely host this time around, and she would like to see Christmas Scenes on your entries.
The challenge runs from 8/12/16 to Wednesday 21/12/16 at 1PM, and then we have a Christmas Break till
January 2017.
This is all for perhaps a Top 3 or 5 badge, but we love to see your wonderful creations you make.
Please pop over to the challenge blog to see what my lovely Team mates created.

So here is what I made for my DT card.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The Christmas Scene came from a Hunkydory set I bought.
I used some Gold Rainbow Mirri card for my base and then added one of the scenes that came with the set.
I decoupaged the village scene.
Then added some ivy and white poinsettias.

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

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I have come down with a chest cold now I very rarely get colds so today I had a lazy day, and no apatite.

This fortnights challenge at the Frilly and Funkie is Home for the Holidays and some sort of decoration, but not a card.
So I remembered John Lockwood HERE making one of these Poinsettia Trees back in November 2013 so I thought I would have a go, I just wish I had looked at his video tutorial first as my cone shape would have been easier.

I started by using Starlight Paints to paint my card in Topaz and Diamond colours.
Now I didn't have any dowling I could use so rolled up some card and painted it.
I also didn't have a glass pot to put mine into so used a upturned yogurt pot  and sponge paint on that too.
The base is an old cheese box sponge painted as well.
The poinsettias are from a die I won at the Pixie's Snippets Playground.
So hopefully I can join the playground with this as I have used some snippets.

I hope you like my effort.
Thank you so much for your visit and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you have had a good weekend.
As it's my sister's Birthday today I will be showing you what I made for her.
I bought a Hunkydory kit in the summer as my sister loves Art Deco.
Sorry there are load of pictures for this.

The book card is 8"x8" in size.
The lovely green shade of card came from Tattered Lace A4 Plus card.
As I said the the images are from Hunkydory.
With this set you also got this lovely writing pad and envelopes which I put together.
I thought my sister could put photos of her Birthday in the pockets inside where the tags are.

Thank you so much for you visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Two of my blog friends are having difficulty in commenting since blogger changed the Dashboard if any of you knows how to fix this can you please let me know and I will pass it on to them.

Time to share an Oldie for Friday with ERIKA HERE.
I know mine is on Saturday this week again, but time ran out on me yesterday I'll just have to hide his shoes next week. lol.
This is my version of a bag that Patricia of Summerhouse Crafts first 
showed on her blog.
Sadly she doesn't seem to blogging anymore  as she made some very lovely creations.

This is made out 2 A4 pieces of card.
I used the largest of the SB Grand
 Scolloped Squares.
You  can put sweets in these or very small bath products.
They would also look better with double sided pattern card.

Thank you so much for you visit.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

Sorry I haven't been about much this week, but it's my sister's 70th Birthday on Sunday, and I was making some special creations to send to her in Wales.

On another note 2 of my blog friends are having troubles with commenting since blogger changed the Dashboard.
 If anyone knows how to solve this please let me know so I can pass it on to them as I know quite a few of you are really good with such things.

Now I am a bit late again this week with my Allsorts Challenge card.
So here it is better late than never I suppose.

This is a 5"x7" size tent card.
 The image is a Hunkydory one.
Just matted and layered it, and added some red and white twine round the edges.
A very quick card to make.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time especially at this time of year.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
