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 it's time for the
Christmas Challenge, and both Teams A and B are posting projects.
We would like to see anything but a card in your entries.
There are some lovely prizes on offer donated by my lovely team mates so it's well worth a entering if you have the time.
The Challenge runs for a fortnight and closes at 6PM on Wednesday the 3rd of Jan 2018.
So this is what I made for the challenge after seeing Jennifer McGuire video HERE.
So here is my version of that ornament.

I made a few mistakes on this.
I added too much snow to the shaker part.
The card I used on the outside was a lovely grey which I glued and glittered, but it doesn't show up much.
The ribbon also has lovely glitter on it too.
I also think I should have photographed it with a draker background.
I do hope you can join us for this challenge, but we may not be able to comment on your entries though.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I have some wonderful news to share Maureen the organiser of the Rudolf Challenge has asked me to stay on for another year as her DT so I am thrilled about that.

Sorry I have been missing yet again, but I have had this awful cold that's going around, and I expect it was because I did too much with the Bazaar and the Christmas Party I organised.
I also have had quite a few last minute orders to make, as I can never say no to anyone that asks for a card.
I also have family coming to stay on Boxing Day.
So life is very hectic at the moment.

I just wanted to let you all know I was still about.
So here is another of my wreaths I made for the Bazaar.

I will be back again on Thursday with the MAWTT Christmas Challenge, and it will be well worth joining in as there are some lovely prizes donated by my fellow team mates on A and B Teams.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I thought for a change from Christmas I would show you a card I was asked to make.
The instructions were that the lady in question loved tiaras, and electric blue.
This was a bit of a nightmare finding that colour card, so the wonderful Ang, Mrs Duck gave me  some lovely card, and I sprayed the rest with Tattered Angels Mica spray to get my colour I wanted. 
The card has the mica sprayed colour on top, and the one form Ang as a matt layer. 

This is a 8"x8" size card, box, and bag I made to fit it.

Thank you so much for your visit and your precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends and visitors.

Sorry I have been missing again, but I have had such a busy time lately.
What with the Christmas Bazaar, and it is my turn to host the MAWTT Chellenge, and also the I was DT for the Rudolf Challenge at the same time.
I literally thought I was spread this way, and that, and just couldn't get around to commenting on your wonderful creations so I am so sorry for that.
Good news though we took over £200 pound on the Bazaar.
This will be used to fund our little club we run, and hlp with our Christmas party next week.

So here are some more Christmas ornaments I made from a design I saw on U TUBE HERE I just tweaked them my way by adding ribbon and some bling.

 I do hope your like them, but they didn't sell well.

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