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.
Did you remember to put your clocks back last night.

Now is anyone having problems with their Win 10 since updates, mine is driving me mad it's so slow, also my mouse keeps freezing, and it keeps jumping all over the place while scrolling.
Also the typing is playing up as well.
So I am sorry if I haven't been around to comment as much as it it taking me so long to comment with all this.
I did turn updates off a while ago, but they came back on automatically.

So onto my card for the Allsorts Challenge.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The embossing folder is a Crafters Companion one.
The image is from the Crafters Companion CD Nordic Christmas.
Verse inside is a stamped one.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your patience with my comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Gorgeous card Jenny, a super reindeer image and the EF looks fabulous.
I do not have Win 10, I am Safari but I too have had the problems you have, maybe it is blogger and not Win10.

Gorgeous card for our challenge at Allsorts Jenny, thanks for joining in. Xxx
My computer updated itself one night to Windows 10, got to get used to it I,m afraid.

Cara said...

Gorgeous card, love the embossed background. Fortunately, I rarely use my laptop so it hasn't updated itself to windows 10, although that probably means that'll it just stop working soon! I live on my original mini iPad. Sorry to hear that you're struggling though, not fun x

Rita said...

Beautiful embossed card Jenny, one that would look outstanding on any mantelpiece. A real showstopper. Hope your looking after yourself. Hugs Rita xxx

Chris said...

Gorgeous! Lovely focal image and I love that embossing folder, they work perfectly together. The rich dark colour of the background card is fabulous, adds such an air of luxury to this beautiful Christmas card.
I hate it when my pc mucks me about! 'Updates' are sent to try us!

A great card - love it. I'm not even on W10 but my broadband has slowed down to almost a standstill which is driving me mad. As you say it takes forever to view anything and as for commenting - very difficult!! Hope yours sorts itself soon.

Hi Jenny, a gorgeous card, love the embossing on the dark green pearlised card and the very cute image you have used... well as for Win10 problems I thought they had settled after the recent updates last week (slow typing and mouse going bonkers)... but mid way through leaving a comment explorer completely closed all windows and went to a blue screen.... Have a wonderful week... Megan

Another lovely Christmas creation Jenny, loving the cool colours, many thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week. I reverted to W 8.1 after the last update, couldn't deal with all the faff.
