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 been about blogging for a few
days. We were away for a long weekend in
Mansfield for a wedding reception being held
there. I hope to get down to some serious bloging
later today, keeping my fingers crossed that I'm
not asked to baby sit for my great granddaughter's.
I really need to get cracking as I have a boy baby
card to make, and also one of those baby book
cards I make too.

Thank you for comments on my last card.
I really do appreciate everyone that you make.

I went out to do my singing with my group of
singers yesterday. It is so lovely see the people
in the nursing homes enjoying our little 
entertainment we do. It was my second outing
with them and I am really enjoying it. Wish I 
had done it many years ago.

Now to my card for today. I made this one a 
long time ago for a lady in my little club who's 
sister lives in Scotland. It was a rather quick 
card because she didn't give me much notice.
It also had to be fairly flat as it was being posted.


Now I have some more of my sister's jewellery
she makes.

On my card I used the Cupcake CD Floral Delights for the paper.
I used a template to make the large 80.
Flowers from my stash, with Stickles to glitter

Thank you again for your visit. 
Hopefully I will be round to see what you have
all been creating later today, as I have to go
food shopping as the cupboard and fridge looks
a tad bare.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
