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 dear blog friends and visitors.
I do hope you have had a wonderful day, and those that have 
had the snow are managing to keep nice and warm.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my Baby
Girl Card.
I was so thrilled with them all especially the one from the 
Pink Gems D T member who made a fabulous comment on 
my entry into their challenge.

Today I have had to visit the hospital in Canterbury for a further
check up on my eyes. I can't believe a sight test and an eye scan 
can take two and half hours.
The problem with my eyes started about 3 years ago when I 
would loose a letter or a number in a word or figures. It seems I 
have a condition called Mactel for short version of a big long
name. This is basically cysts behind the eyeball which will
result in me loosing a lot of my eyesight one day, but it's very
slow moving and hopefully that will be many years from  now.
When I visit your blogs I have to zoom your text to be able to 
read it. Well that's enough of my probs I expect there are more
people with worse than that to cope with out there.

So to the box to go with the Baby Girl Card.

Thank you again for your visit and comments.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day, and are keeping 
nice and warm.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Good morning Jenny,
That eye thing does not sound so good. Hope they manage to keep it at bay. Keep going for the eye test no matter how much of a bother it may be.
Loved the card and here comes a stunning box to match. That is a keepsake to hang to for ever.
Just a little snow overnight so hopefully we will get out to stock up on the "fresh" food stuff.
Keep warm and keep on crafting

Hi Jenny - totally beautiful box for your card. I love the layout. Can I also say that I am sorry about your eye problem, I knew that you preferred reading larger print but didn't know this was the cause. I'm glad to hear that it is a slow progressing problem though - the slower the better.

Big hugs to you blog buddy Sue Pxxx
