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 afternoon to all you wonderful and talented craft friends
and visitors.
THANK YOU for all the wonderful comments on my last
I hope the weather has been good to you where you live.
It has been very cold in Kent and windy too, the temperature 
hardly got above freezing today.
The yellow thing in the sky that warms us up made a short 
appearance for about 15 minutes around lunch time.
It could have given us a few more hours of sunshine now
couldn't it.
Well never mind there's always tomorrow maybe the sun will 
shine a little bit longer, but then again it could rain or throw
that horrid white stuff at us.

My card today I made with a freebie image from the Whoopsi 
Daisy Images.
I do actually buy some too. lol.

Click to enlarge.

Now the inside.

This card was made with papers from docrafts Papermania 
Capsule Collection.
I have used a Martha Stewart punch across the middle and 
round the image, the image was coloured in with Flexmarkers.
I have used Di-namics Corner Dies, some beading from my
stash and also the chipboard flower.
The Grand Square Dies for the inside.
The hat pin I made myself to go with the colours in the card.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments.
I hope you continue to have a very pleasant Thursday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges. Make it Girly
