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 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

Congratulations on staying on the Rudolph Days Dt for another year, Jenny, well deserved! Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful Christmas creations throoughout 2018.

What a beautiful wreath, it looks really complicated to make, but I love the design.

Hope you will recover soon from your bad cold. There seems to be a lot of it around this year. I'm had it too for the last couple of weeks, but hopefully I'm over the worst now. I'd planned to pop in a couple of elderly relatives this week, but as they are both well into their 90s, I think I'll have to leave it until I've totally shaken of my cold. xx

I’m so pleased to hear your happy news Jenny. The cards that you make are always stunning and I know that you’ll do Mo proud. I too have a nasty cold and a cough that seems to have made itself right at home, hence my lack of blogging too. Your little wreath is lovely and I’ve really enjoyed seeing all of your makes. I wish you and your family a very happy and peaceful Christmas. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

What a beautiful Christmas decoration Jenny! Congratulations on another year with the team!!

This is such a horrible time of year for catching a cold, I do hope you get to feeling better before Santa arrives! My family arrived on Friday, so the Christmas festivities have already begun. The Christmas house and the Christmas window display contest this week, fun times! Sending Christmas hugs :)

Congratulations on your DT posting for 2018. This wreath looks lovely. I'm guessing its made from pipe cleaners like the candy canes. Very effective. I still have this flu/cold bug 3weeks + down the line. Everytime I think I'm shot of it another symptom pops up. hope you feel better for the christmas period. Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Jenny, Congratulations on your being part of the team again for 2018, well deserved.
Your wreath is fabulous, I bet they went down well at the Bazaar.
I hope you are soon feeling better, when these bugs get hold they are hard to shift, you probably contracted the germs when you were in close proximity to everyone at the Bazaar.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
