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.

I can't believe it's the 25th of the month already and time for the 
over at Scrappymo's blog.
The challenge runs from today the 25th to the end of the month.
It's anything goes as long as it's Christmas themed.
Maureen usually has a wonderful prize for the lucky winner, and it all helps with your Christmas card makes too  before all the rush of Christmas.

Here is my DT card I made.


This is a 5"x7" size card I made to fit that size envelope.
I used a lovely Recollections stamp and die set that Maureen sent me to make this.
I coloured the truck in with Distress Inks and white gel pen.
I also coloured the fir branches and trees with more DI, and white gel pen.
Then I added some snow onto glue, finally I embossed the green card and the white frame with a 3D Snowfall  embossing folder, but it doesn't show up much on the photo, but if you click on the photo to expand it you can see this.
Finally I stamped fir branches inside the card, and the verse is a Crafters Companion stamp.
I do hope you can join in this month.

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

Thanks for designing another wonderful card, Jenny! Your red truck looks fabulous and the wreath on the side is the crowning glory of this scene. You do see wreaths on trucks over here...more is smaller towns across the province. They are rare to see, so it is always a treat!

Thanks for being part of our design team. IT is always good to see your cards as I love the way you focus on the inside of your cards too!

A great Christmassy scene - 'snow' is very effective and I like the added touch of embossing on the frame.
