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, and craft loving friends.

Well I'm nearly about 24 hours late posting my DT post as I couldn't get to my computer till tonight as my craft room was full of kitchen appliances.
It's time for another challenge over at
It is the B Teams turn again, and the lovely Caz is our host for this challenge, and she would like to see 
Anything Christmas on your entries.
The challenge runs from Thursday the 6th of December to Wednesday the 19th of December, and closes at 6PM.
Please pop along to the challenge to see my wonderful team mates creations.
So here is a card I made weeks ago especially for this challenge as I knew things would be hectic now.

This is a 7"x6" tent style card I made.
I used an embossing folder given to me by a friend with this lovely image of the Robin, and Holly on.
I used white Hunkydory plain card to emboss this on, and then I sprayed it with Crafters Companion Pearl Diamond Sparkle Spray to give it the pearlised sheen.
Then I added some waxes which I have had for many a year in various colours to the different areas, and then finally adding some red pearls for the berries, and a little black stone to the Robins eye.
The greeting sentiment was a buy from The Works.

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

We should do it more often!! Big hugs Christine xx
