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 craft loving friends, and visitors.

I made this Christmas card before Christmas, and never got to show it due to me being ill.
So I thought I would post it today.
I have a few more I made also to show  over the next few weeks.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image of the snowman is a Hunkydory one, and I added some snow to the image.
The holly frame is a Tattered Lace one which I die cut 3 times, and glued together to make it stand out.
The silver glitter card is from the pound shop and it's brilliant as it doesn't shed glitter.
Red beads came from the bits left over from my Christmas wreaths.
Wooden snowflakes bought at Sainsbury's last year, and glittered.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
