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.

Good evening to all you wonderful and talented blog friends and
Thank you for all your good wishes for my great niece.
After all that panic and rushing to get the card made in a great
hurry, baby decided it didn't want to be born just yet, so she was
sent home.
Will let you know when the little bundle does make an appearance.

Thank you for all your fabulous comments on my work.
I know I keep saying this but I really love to read your comments,
and they make me sooooooo happy.

Today we have a 40th Birthday Card and Box.

Click to enlarge.

Now the box.

This card was made with Kanban card and holographic card.
I used a Martha Stewart punch.
The Arty Farty handbag template.
The forty numbers were made on my Cricut Machine.
Thank you again for your visit as I know time is precious to all
of us.
Have a fabulous Friday tomorrow.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges. Punch it out.

Very glitzy glamorous Jenny. I tried to put a comment on your WOYWW post earlier on and it wouldn't let me do it, I 'must have been holding my mouth wrong' as my mother used to say. Anyway what I tried to write was that it was great to get a chance to see where all your fantastic work is done. I'm off to bed now.

Great 40th card Jenny. You see the baby was thinking off you, and decided to give you a break, now you have a chance to get its card and box done without a rush, so glad to hear its going to wait to be born and I bet you are all glad too.

Morning Jenny, This is a lovely 40th card and box, and 'handbags', a girl's best friend, we all love bags, don't we. The recipient will love this card.
I had to chuckle when you said the baby didn't arrive, after all that rushing, well at least you have the card done now ready for when baby arrives, what a shame for your Great-Niece, she will have to go through it all over again.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good Morning Jenny,
Great card, every girl loves bags and shoes, this will be treasured.
After all the panic baby decided to wait.....typical, just typical. Now you can relax, take your time and finish off your card.

You have got me thinking WHERE!!are all my Arty Farty Templates........??
Have a Great Day
