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 good morning to my wonderful followers and visitors.
I hope you all had a really great day yesterday.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful commments.
I feel so happy after reading each one.
I'm so glad some of you were interested in the Twinchies
Challenge, I look forward to seeing some of your creation
in this challenge.
Word of caution though it is very addictive. lol.
Tomorrow I am looking after my wonderful little great
granddaughter Ellie, so I may be a little later visiting your blogs.

My card today is one I made for my brother in law.

Click on the photo to get a closer look .

Now the inside.

I made this card with an A5 deckled edge card blank in white.
I matted it with maroon and cream card.
I added an image of a football teddy from Pink Gems digi images.
Coloured it in with Promarkers.
Made a pennant for my sentiment.
I decorated the inside to match with Spellbinders Elegant Posts
Well that's all for now folks.
Have fun out there with your crafting.
Have a wonderful crafty Wednesday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Love this card, beautiful colouring on that cute bear.
Have a great time with Ellie, little ones are so much fun, only thing is they use a up a lot of your energy but it is well worth it.

Today I think I might have a wee play with these dinky little cards, I have plenty bits lying about.
Have a Great Day

Morning Jenny, Lovely card for your Brother in Law, who I presume loves football. The bear is gorgeous and a No. 1 star. Beautiful card, Jenny.
I hope you have a great day today with Ellie, bet you will be worn out after she's gone though ha ha, they have so much energy, don't they ha ha. I met my Great Grandson, Jordan, last Saturday for the first time (his Mum, my Granddaughter, left home at 17 because of a row with my Daughter about her boyfriend and there was no contact for 10 years), Jordan is 6 in December and I couldn't believe what a 'livewire' he was, but it was so lovely to get to meet him. You have a good day today Jenny.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Jenny - un-numb nose here! I love your card and I was wondering where the corners had come from - never guessed it was the Elegant Posts - they look really really good as corners. That little image is such a cutie. I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow with Ellie.

|Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
