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 morning to all you wonderful and talented crafts people
and visitors.
I am back home from visiting my Dad in Wales.
Sorry about the rush of my departure but my sister was quite
worried about him and thought I should see him.
He is a little bit better now but who knows at the age of 93.
Thank you for all your kind wishes and thoughts, you are such
a wonderful caring craft community. 
I am so glad to be able to be part of it.

I am glad to be back as I have developed a nasty cold and I 
wouldn't want to give it to my Dad as a cold virus thing started
everything off and has developed into all sorts of other problems
for him.

My card today is one I made last night, the image is one I picked
as my prize for winning in the Penny's blog challenge.
It's a Saturated Canary image and I fell in love with this image
as soon as I saw it.

Click to enlarge.

Now the inside.

The papers are Dovecraft The London Line.
The pink card is from Cupcake Craft and the mint colour card
is Dovecraft double sided card.
The lovely lace was given to me by the wonderful Sue P.
The ribbon was bought for me by my sister.
The image is Saturated Canary coloured in with Promarkers.
I have used the Grand Scolloped Die and the Grand Oval Die,
and of course the small butterfly from the Fanciful Flights Die.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful day today.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY,

Hi Jenny, So glad you are back safe and sound, I hope your Dad keeps improving, it must be such a worry for you all, maybe the worry has lowered your immune system and hence the cold back. You take care now, get Tony to look after you.
Your card is beautiful, lovely image, no wonder you chose that one, beautiful colours and gorgeous inside as well as out, as always.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
