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
craft loving people and visitors.
I hope you all have had really good crafty week.
your wonderful comments on my last card.

I do hope the weather is starting to improve where
you live. Here in East Kent it is very lovely one
day and quite horrible the next, and still quite cold.

I am in the middle of a Baby Book project at the
moment for my sister's granddaughter, and I have
been looking after my little great granddaughter's 
yesterday. So I ma sorry if I haven't been visiting
your blogs.

Today I have a box and card I made about 5 years
ago, and before I was bought my Grand Calibur.
It was for a lady who was retiring from her job, and loves to go golfing. There are quite a few
photos for this one, so I hope you are not bored
with it.



  This is an A5 size card book.
Made by gluing 3 A5 size  card together and
then gluing the center pages together at the back
to make the center piece.
I decorated it with freebie images found on the internet, and peel offs.
Now I know a lot of you very professional card
makers don't use many peel offs, but this was made before I was told this by a good crafting buddy. Still I do think they have a place sometime.

Thank you again for taking the time to visit me,
and leaving your wonderful comments. 
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Morning Jenny, What a beautiful keepsake this book and box, I think Liz will be sooooo happy with this. Our weather is horrid here in Cheshire, last evening was the nicest part of the day, the sun came out at 5'ish, but didn't last long. The only good thing about the rain - I don't have to water the garden and my new grass seed - apart from that, it is horrible and cold with it too.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good Morning Jenny,
What a fantastic gift to treasure.
I used to have loads of peel offs ..........yes,we have all been there. Used them when they were in "fashion". Gave mine to the school but have kept a few just in case they come round again!!!
Have a Great Day

She must have loved this Jenny. I too have a load of peel offs - and loads of other stuff that is fashionable for a while . When you think about it - we've got quite an expensive hobby haven't we? But a fabulous one!! I agree about the weather, even when the sun shines it is still cold (like today) and we are still having wind and rain - and even hail stones. This year is turning out worse than last year I think! Hope you enjoy your day whatever you do. Love from Christine xx

This is just wonderful and with the stickers or peel offs as you guys call them, I still have some but gosh never use many of Christine said it's a fashion thing this crafting but we eventually use it all up...I have donated heaps to the child care center across the road plus all my scrap paper goes to the nuns and the school...but, a fantastic idea with an awesome aNNie

Hi Jenny, what a lovely keepsake card, loads of wonderful detail. I think your ideas are just wonderful.
I'm not really a lover of peeloffs though I have some and your right they do have their place. I can never get mine on straight though. Have a great day, katex

Good morning Jenny, what a wonderful gift and I always admire all the work you put into your books and boxes. Yea like everyone have loads of peel off which haven't seen the light of day for ages. Weather here up and down but thankfully yesterday was beautiful but wish the wind wasn't so cold. Love Christine H xx

Great card Jenny. I think everybody uses peel offs at some time and the Glitter Girls would definitely think that there is a place for them in card making.
