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.

A little info about the cards I made for my Daughter's works they have nearly all been sold, and when the last one is sold they will have made nearly £100 so that was a big success, and I am so chuffed that people like them so much.

A few years ago I was struggling with my mojo as far as Christmas cards were concerned I just couldn't think of designs.
Currently I seem to be on a roll as far as designing my Christmas cards and ideas are flowing fast and furiously thank goodness.
So sorry this is yet another Christmas card made yesterday for the Allsorts Challenge.
Now apologies if this tree design is any ones, as I thought of it, and am not sure if it just came to me or I have seen it somewhere before. 
The challenge is to use ribbon in a different way so here is my interpretation of the challenge.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The holly paper is a download from the C&C club .
The ribbon with the holly is a TL one.
The holly corners are TL die.
Pierced the edges of the white card with TH ruler.
Sentiment from the Internet.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
