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 2 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.

Sorry I have been missing this week, but my Daughter was on leave from her work, and so my Daughter, Granddaughter, and myself had a lovely week shopping and doing lots of lovely things together.
I managed quite a bit of C,shopping with their lovely help too. 
So then I had a lot of house work to catch up on that got left out.

In between I was watching U Tube on how to make Christmas Ornaments as I had to make a DT project for the MAWTT Christmas Challenge that was anything except a card.
So here is the second ornament I made yesterday.
For anyone that is interested in making one of these HERE is the link.

This is my version of her wonderful ornament.
I didn't have the shower ring she used so I used a few layers of card, and wrapped my ribbon around.
There is a Snippet of Acetate on the image that doesn't show in the photo.
Also I used up lots of Snippets to make this including the image, and the back embossed card, so I will be joining my playground friends with this.
The poinsettia die I won on the playground years ago.

Thank you for your visit, and your wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

What a gorgeous Christmas ornament Jenny! We love robins too and every evening just before dusk our resident robin hops into the bird bath for his nighttime dip! I fully expect him to produce a little backbrush one of these evenings :)

Lovely to see you using the poinsettia die - it's such a pretty one I think.

This is beautiful, I love your perfect execution of it too, so professional and not a glue splodge in sight ( it'd be covered in bits and glue if I attempted it!) x
