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 I have had and eventful couple of weeks here at Lawrence towers.
Our Internet connection was playing up, and eventually after lots of consultations we were sent a new router.
So while all this was going on I decided to tidy my craft room and reorganise my dies and other crafty stash.
Phew I am exhausted as it took me ages, and too much energy, plus having to stop, rest my back so I wouldn't have my usual back probs.
Well enough of my troubles.
It's that time again for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at 
The challenge runs from the 25th to the end of the month, and as always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
Maureen has a wonderful prize on offer for the winner as always.
So here is my GD card.


This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used lots of Snippets on this one. 
The gold frame is cut from snippets, the craft card I used for the sand is snippets, the sky is snippets, the camels, and wise men were cut from a snippet of black, and  the the holly was cut from snippets. 
Then I finally stamped and heat embossed my sentiment on some snippet.
The circle wreath die I used for the scene is a Nbus one so I will be joining Darnell's Nbus challenge with this.

Thank you so much for your visit, and I do hope you can join this great challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is such a gorgeous card, Jenny. The elements are worl together beautifully.
When you sent the photo, I had not noticed that the gold mat was a wreath form. That is so cool
Thanks so much for being part of the design team at the Rudolph Days Challenge.

I really look forward to seeing your Christmas cards on Rudolph Day and this is another beauty. Lots of lovely layering and I love the gorgeous white ribbon. I know what you mean Jenny about tidying up a craftroom as I usually feel like I've done a Marathon when I tidy mine up and it's only a small room. At least you can enjoy it now that it's done. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Cara said...

This is just stunning! I love the colours and touch of bling. Sorry to hear that your internet has been playing up, but it sounds like you've been productive in the meantime. Hope your back is behaving x
