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 and wonderful craft loving blog friends and
It is a wonderful sunny morning in Kent,  after a fairly cold night
so it's a little brisk outside at the moment, but I'm sure as the day
wears on it will be lovely and warm.
I do hope your weekend is a very relaxing one, and that you are
all managing to get a little crafting slotted into your day.

THANK YOU for all your comments on my last creations.
You all are so very generous with your lovely comments, and I
really do appreciate your time spent visiting me.

I have joined a singing group that used to entertain my little
club. We practice on a Monday afternoon, and then occasionally
go to nursing homes and entertain the residents. The money we 
make for this goes to the  Cerebral Palsy charity so I think  it's worthwhile giving my time for something so needy.
I have been asked to do a solo and am getting weak at the knees
just thinking about my first time singing to an audience.

Well enough of my waffle as Planet Susie would say.
Today I have a card I made with some craft sheets I bought 
at the NEC in march they are Hunkydory and I fell in love
with them as soon as I saw them, and looking at my blog 
layout you can understand why. I just love OWLS.


Now the inside, because you know me I have to decorate the
inside too.

As stated earlier the card and toppers are Hunkydory.
The purple pearlescent metallic card is Dovecraft.
I bought the lovely Rhinestone Owl at the NEC too.
Thank you again for your visit today.
I hope you are all experiencing lovely weather this weekend.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Great card Jenny. I'm surprised you managed to part with those owls! They are gorgeous. Enjoy the rest of your day. I'm dividing my time today between clearing out my craft space (I don't think I'll ever be finished!) and tidying up in the garden while it is dry and not bitterly cold. Love from Christine xx

Gorgeous card Jenny those owls are beautiful. Love the colours of your card as well, and your layout.

Well done you for joining the chior, I'm sure you will all be appreciated where ever you sing. I find singing just lifts the spirits. How brave to sing solo, I at least have another 100 or so voices around me. I'm sure you'll be great. Kate x

Morning Jenny, This is a gorgeous card, lovely papers, I too love owls.
The singing club sound really good, and being asked to do a solo, you must feel honoured, I wish I had a good singing voice. Good luck with the solo, you'll be fantastic.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good Sunny Morning Jenny,

Loving your great card, we hear the Owls in the trees at the side of the garden, also hear the "Swoosh, Swoosh! as they fly past on the dark.
Good luck with the singing and the fundraising
