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 dear blog friends and visitors.
Sorry I haven't posted anything for a few days my mojo got up
and did a walk about. lol
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my sister's
jewellery she makes.
She also told me her mojo has done the same as she needs to
make a necklace for her daughter's friend and can't get any ideas
popping into her head.

My card today is one for my granddaughter who has moved 
house recently.

Now the inside.

The odd shape card, I bought from the NEC  on a stall that
sold everything for a pound. There were 3 in a pack with 
envelopes for £1 a really good value for money I think.
The papers I bought yesterday from supermarket news stand
in a book form really lovely papers and good value for money
as well. 
I platted some very thin ribbon from a lovely tutorial that
the lovely Wilma Brown sent me. Thank you Wilma.
You can find this here. 

Thank you again for your visit to my blog.
I do hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and the cold weather
hasn't spoiled it for you.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi Jenny,
A lovely card and nice bright colours. I keep looking at that plaiting technique and thinking I will try it, but so far I haven't. One day ..... Have a good day.

Great card Jenny. Love the colours. The braided ribbon is lovely but I find that it does use a lot of ribbon so I only use it for "special" cards.

Lurvely Jenny - I like all shades of pink and green (these shades in particular). They are always sooooo cheerful. Love your card and - when I find me ribbon again - I will be having a go at plaiting.

Hugs to you my blog bud Sue Pxxx
