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.

I would like to welcome my newest follower and thank you so much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you will find time to visit as often as you can.

I do hope you are all having a nice weekend, and the weather is being kind to you.
Here in my part of Kent it's very drab and raining, but at least it's not too cold.

I have lots of cards I need to make to say thank you, but I keep making Christmas ones instead.

Our Macmillan coffee morning took £201 so I am so glad all our efforts brought in such a wonderful amount.

So here is yet another Christmas card.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The lovely image is a Hunkydory one.
I added some snow to the image, and some die cuts to the side of the image
which I cut out 4, and cut them so they looked like a panel die.
These 2 items I bought from

  You will find the link on my side bar if your interested, and it will help a fellow blog friend who is trying to sell lovely items at very reasonable prices, and No Postage costs if your spend £20.
As I cut out the starry nights die with Snippets of white card, and backed my image on white Snippets of card I will be joining my playground friends with this.
Just thought as my Starry Nught Die is a Nbus item I will be joining Darnell again with her wonderful NBUS challenge.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.

Hi Jenny, Brilliant amount you collected for Macmillan. My hubby's office did quite well too, considering there are only a few of them. My two cakes I sent were snapped up and got rave reviews, so I felt good too haha.

Lots of love from Patricia xx

Sarah said...

What a magnificent amount you raised Jenny...well done!! Love this card, I have such a fondness for Robins and we are lucky enough to have a family in the garden all year round. They do say that when you see a Robin, someone from heaven is stopping to say hello. I like to think that our visits are from my Dad :0) xx
