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 Jenny, Snap !! so sorry to hear that your cold is so bad, I can empathise with the coughing keeping you awake, I have had mine for 2 weeks now, have coughed that much that I've pulled muscles in my stomach. I really hope that you are feeling much better, really soon.
I'm loving your card, lovely images.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Aww I'm so sorry that you've not been well Jenny. I do hope things have improved for you now. So many horrid colds and coughs going around… they spread so easily at this time of year! I love the animated picture.. it's so beautiful with the Red bird and the owl. I love your beautiful Christmas Card too.. oh he's a wonderful Santa isn't he… so much character and a fab scene with his sleigh and reindeer.
I hope you can catch up a bit with your Christmas preparations.
Thanks for all your visits to my blog.. I sure do appreciate them.
