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 all my talented blog fiends and visitors to my blog.
I do hope you have all had really great weekend.
The weather cleared up by Sunday, and I managed to get quite
a bit of gardening done.
Still behind what  I am  normally doing in the garden, by now I usually have lots of plug plants on growing and some veg too.
I get very tired after gardening these days, so I am sorry I haven't 
been visiting your blogs for a day or so.

THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my last
I really do appreciate every one you make.

Tonight I have a card I made for my granddaughter who has a 
pony and does mounted games for her local club.
I saw this image on Pops Cards blog and thought to my self 
this would be great for my granddaughter.
This was back last year and you no what us crafters are like
we forget about something till it's too late to buy this wonderful
stamp. So the wonderful Pops came to my rescue and lent me
her stamp. THANK YOU soooooooooo much you are a great
blog friend.
The stamp can be found here.
Now to my version of this fabulous image. I do hope I have
done it as much justice as the fabulous one Pops did, as I am 
not as good as she is at colouring in the images.


Now the inside.

Items used on this card.
Jolly Nation paper.
Whimsey Stamp Girls Best Friend, coloured in with Flexmarkers
and Promarkers.
The rosette was made with a Papermania template I bought a 
long time ago.
Flowers from WOC.
Special Day Ticket from Pink Gems.
Spellbinders Dies and Di-namics Dies.

Thank you again for taking the time out of your busy lives to
pay me a visit.
I do hope you all have a wonderful and crafty day tomorrow.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY . 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges. Anything goes.

Just perfect for a little girl who loves ponies Jenny. She'll love it! I've been busy potting up my plugs for the beds but I haven't even started on vegetables. Last year was a really poor year for the veg. So disappointing! HAving spent a couple of hours cycling this morning and then a couple of hours in the garden I must admit to feeling "cream crackered"!! Love and hugs from Christine xx

Hi Jenny, gorgeous card for your granddaughter. You have coloured it beautifully and created a lovely card. We are still quite cool up here only 11 degrees at lunchtime, sun came out for a short spell then disappeared. Well we live in hope.

Morning Jenny, This card is gorgeous, and your Grand-daughter will absolutely love it, I especially love the different tones on the girl's hair and the horse's mane, simply beautiful colouring. I popped over to Pops Cards, she does beautiful cards too.
I have also been gardening this Bank Holiday weekend, and my back is aching like mad, so can sympathise with you, I tend to forget my age but my body reminds me ha ha !!.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Patricia said...
