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 do hope everyone is keeping well, and also keeping warm and cosy this winters time.

Today I have a Christmas card to join in the 
over at scrappymo's blog.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
As I was not designing this month I thought I would join the challenge which I am allowed to.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
A couple of years ago I joined in Loll's 12 days of Christmas Tag Challenge, and made quite  few tags so I thought I would make use of them and make them into cards.
I made one last year and this is my second one.
The choir boys are a Hunkydory image.
The poinsettias were made with a Robert Adams Die which I won years ago on the Pixies Snippets Challenge.
The Glittered Happy Christmas wooden sentiment was from the Works last year.
As I used lots of snippets on this I will also be joining the Pixies Snippets Challenge.

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

Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I do hope everyone is keeping well.
Can't seem to get my head around crafting lately, but I had to make a few family Birthday cards so that pushed me into the craft room.
I made this card for my Daughter to give my Granddaughter who's is 33 tomorrow.
I know she doesn't look at my blog so it's okay to show now.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are from a Paper Boutique pad.
Sorry the inside photo didn't come out very well.
Lace from my stash wooden bird cage from the works.
The large flower is from WOC.
The small ones are Tim Holtz.
Leaves I made.
Pearl corner cut from a large roll of pearls bought at the Range a couple of years ago in their sale.
Cut out some butterflies from the strip of paper used,  and then decoupaged them.
Happy Birthday die Sue Wilson's.
