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.

Saturday 16 February 2013


Good evening dear blog friends and visitors.
I hope you have had a really good Saturday.
I have been looking after my 2 little great granddaughters today,
Ellie and Faye.
They both are soooooooo cute but then I'm biased as I'm their
great Nanny.
The eldest one who is Faye calls me little Nanny and my daughter
her Nan is big Nanny.
When I was a child I called my great Nanny big Nanny but little
Faye likes it the other way round bless her.

THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my work.
I really do appreciate everyone that is made, and thank you for
taking the time to visit my blog, as I know that you all have very
busy lives.

My card today is one I made after my great grandchildren went
home, but first I had to have a little nap as I got worn out looking
after them.
I coloured the image last night and then made up the card 
earlier this evening.
 The image was a freebie from the Whoopsi Daisy Images,
and I coloured it in with a mixture of Flexmarkers, Promarkers,
and Tria Markers. 

Click to enlarge.

Now the inside.

I have used Dovecraft London Line papers, Di-namics Dizzy
Doily Die, 3 times under the image and inside, I cut the 3rd
one in half to get the bigger round effect.
The image is as I stated earlier, the flowers are the smallest
ones in the Spellbinders Rose Creations Die, they are glued 
onto a spray from the Spellbinders Foliage 2 Die, and the 
butterflies are Memory Box Moonlight Butterlies.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty Sunday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges. Dies and Punches Challenge 256 An Eye

Thank you for following my blog. Sue and I do have a lovely little banter when we visit each others blogs.
It all started when her heating packed up before Christmas and I said I would get my magic wand and make everything okay.
Have a wonderful crafty Sunday.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
