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 I have spent a few days with family, and did some shopping as well.
 Don't get out much these days so it was a real treat to spend time with my daughter, and she enjoyed our outings also, but it did leave me so tired.

As it's the 25th of the month again it's time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 
As  always its' anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
Only one entry per person, and it runs from the 25th till the end of the month.
Maureen always has a lovely prize on offer to the winner.
As I am not a GD this month I have been told I can enter the challenge.
Now I made 2 cards and couldn't think which one to enter.
So I shall show both, but I'm only entering one.


The first card is a 6"x6" size.
The second one is an 8"x8" size.
The first I inked using DOI in Broken China, and Worn Lipstick to give it the colour.
Then I stamped and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. 
The second I printed some freebie paper from C&C club download.
Such a lovely holly paper.
The image I coloured with Derwent pencils I have had for ages.
Die cut lots of fir branches to make a wreath, and glittered them.

Thank you for you visit, and time as I know time is precious to all of us.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Gorgeous cards, love how you have decorated the insides so beautifully to match. I think my favourite is the first one as I love snowglobes.

Patricia said...

Oh! My! Word! Jenny your cards are brilliant, love them both.
I think the Snow Globe could possibly have edge!

The sentiment was:-
It's not what we have in life ... but who we have in life that matters.
Think that's very true.

Two lovely cards Jenny. I just love the snow globe, but the row of birds are very cute too. I love the way you make the insides of your cards so special too. I sometimes manage it for a special birthday card, but sadly not for all my Christmas ones. Kate x

Two gorgeous cards Jenny, beautifully designed, do you know I can't choose a favourite.
