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.

Well you don't see me for a few days, and then I am like buses posting 2 post in the space of twenty four hours.

Today starts the 
This challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month, and is anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
I do hope you can all join in this wonderful challenge as Maureen always has a wonderful prize on offer to the winner.

So on to my entry for the challenge this month as I am not a guest designer this month.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The paper I used is a snippet of paper from a Debbie Moore magazine I bought many years ago, and used some of it years ago.
Flowers from Wild Orchid crafts I bought years ago too.
The fir branches are a TL die.
The ribbon is a snippet also .
Rudolf was a tree decoration from the works a few years ago which I bought in the sale.
Finally I stamped my sentiment with a prize I won at the Snippets playground, and heat embossed with silver pearl embossing powder.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

A very eye-catching card. I love the festive fruits and flowers but it has a lot of dimension, so our post office lady would be very cross with me if I tried to send it to anyone. Fortunately I also give quite a lot of 'by hand' cards so I can still play with layers sometimes. Kate x

Barb said...

Oh this is lovely. Full of festive goodies and I love the reindeer. Barbxx
