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 3 Little Great Granddaughters and a Great Grandson. I have been card making for about 20 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.


Sorry I have not been about much this month I am suffering with my Arthritis quite badly everywhere in my body at the mo.

So with this new lockdown I have no help with my work, and it takes me ages to get it all done, and then I am too exhausted to blog.

I have however made quite a few cards as I had orderes and family ones to do, and January is a busy month for family Birthdays. 

I can never say no to anyone that asks me to make cards are you the same.

Well that's enough of my woes I am sure there are lots more people with more severe health issues than me so I shouldn't grumble.


So I quickly made a card for the 

Rudolf Days Challenge over at


 as I don't like to miss it, and it's not my month for DT so I can enter. 


This is a 7"x5" size card.

The stamp is a Wooeware one that was one of  lovely presents from Maureen for being on her DT.

I origanlly stamped it on the front of the card, but I didn't like it like that so I stamped it again and cut it out and raised it on card board

this is a cheaper way than using foam tape.

Will be back tomorrow with my DT for Moving Along With The Times as it's the first of the month.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate your visit especially as I am such a bad blogger at the mo.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

I would like to enter this not the following challenge.

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


Lest hope this year is a going to be a better one and we can get back to some normality soon.


As it's the first of the month it's time for another challenge over at


The challenge theme this month chosen by our lovely Carole is 


So New Baby, Weddings, New Home and that sort of thing.

The challenge runs to the 30th of January 2021.

So I made a Baby card for my DT

actually I made this a while ago but have never shown it.


This is a 8"x8" size card.

I used up lots of snippets of paper left over from other Baby cards I have made hence the half and half style papers.

The photo of the inside I couldn't get the colour right as the colour is more like the front of the card.

The doily was a Tattered Lace Die, and the Baby items was a cheap Chinese die.

Please try and visit the challenge blog to see the lovely creations made by my team friends.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
