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.

Friday 2 November 2012


Hi, good morning and welcome to my blog.
A big THANK YOU to all you wonderful talented followers of
my blog, and any visitors that may pay me a visit.
Your views on my work are very welcome.
I hope you all had a fabulous Thursday, and the weather was
kind to you where ever you may live.
My thoughts are with those unfortunate people in America who 
have lost everything and maybe even a loved one.

I am feeling so much better now, I have managed to eat a little.
Tea and coffee still doesn't taste the same, but hopefully 
tomorrow they mat taste better.
Thank  you for all your get well wishes.
In any rate I shouldn't grumble this is nothing to what some
people have to put up with day in and day out.

My card today was made with a wonderful present that was
sent to me from a very lovely and talented craft person who
I won't name in case she would not like me to, but you know
who you are, and THANK YOU SOOOOOO much.
So I really made this for her, to see it's being made use of.

Now the inside.

This card was made with Hunkydory Adorable Scorable
A4 card outside and inside.
I added some a small doily underneath the topper of the cute
little elephant.
Some Parisian corners round the sentiment and in the corners.
A nice big bow, a few pearly embellishments from my stash, 
and last but not least one of my home made stick pins.
I decorated the inside to match.
I hope you like this one.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty Friday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this in the following challenges. 
Anything Goes.

Glad you're starting to feel better Jenny. This is a really lovely card. It's good to be able to mix up the elements of the card with your own embellishments. It reminds me that two years ago at the NEC I bought a magazine with a card making pack inside and I haven't even looked at it. Maybe it's time to open up and see what's in there. Love from Christine x
