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 ally you talented craft loving followers and
I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO much for sparing the time to 
visit my blog and leave a comment.
I really do appreciate every comment that is made by you.

No sign of Baby yet, the hospital wants to start her off because
of her waters having broken, but they have no room in the
special care baby unit, so they holding off till then. So in the
meantime she has to stay in hospital. Not easy when you have 
3 children at home. They did try a few other hospitals but their
special care units were full too.

Today I have made a get well card for a lady who comes to my
Tuesday Club. She has had a slight stroke.
I hope you like it because this is one card I really like how it
turned out. You know the one you want to do a happy dance
because you like it so much.

Scolloped Oval Die, Grand Oval Die, Marianne Corner Die,

Really lovely card Jenny. The colours are gorgeous. This card reminds me that I have this spellbinder flower die which I haven't used for some time - I must look it out after seeing this.

Sue said...

Your card is stunning Jenny. I love the cheery colours and gorgeous detailing.
I hope the baby arrives safe and sound soon.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Good evening Jenny,
Love this card your friend will really appreciate it.
That's a bit ridiculous that they have no room in the baby care unit.
It is the same here DIL a midwife says it all down to money as each baby needs a nurse so they cuts down on cote cots to save wages
Have a Great Weekend

"Does a happy dance with you" xxxxxxxxxx This is soooooo gorgeous my beloved fairy godmother, I love the colours and oh my goodness its just beautiful no wonder you were dancing LOL Its ridiculous that they have no room, and even more ridiculous when they look further afield, in this day and age we should all have hospitals on our doorsteps instead of all these cutbacks its shocking...huggles hun xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Jenny
I know I am very late commenting on this card but I had to come and take a look at your recent work and I was blown away by your work.
I adore the colours and the layout is stunning. I thought I had found another Sue Wilson. Beautifully done.
Hugs Linda x
