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.

Hazel said...

Jenny. What a lonely cheerful card. Just love it. Yes I know how looking after little ones takes up your time, I seem to be here there and ever where this week. To little grandsons nursery yesterday in the morning then to the girls school Christmas party - they still give them an old fashion party with party games etc. there are only 40 in the school so it covers them all and nice to see and the older ones play along about Santa. Tomorrow it's their school service so even with mummy being there Hazel has to be there to. All part of being a nanny to them for 10 years. Take care. Hazel.
