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 afternoon dear blog friends and visitors.
I hope you are all having a glorious weekend,
and the weather is being very kind to you.

Thank you for all comments on my last creation.
I very much appreciate everyone that you make.

This afternoon I have a Book Mark that I made
for a challenge entry into a Book Mark Challenge
on a friends blog last year. I realized that it was
before I started my blog so I thought I would
show it on here. Some of you who have also 
followed my friends blog will perhaps recognize 


I cut out 2 SB Square Swatches out of silver 
card and embossed them with the Enchanted
M- Bossabilities  embossing folder.
Then I glued them together round half of the 
I then decorated the top with the middle cut
outs of the SB Ornate Cross Die.
This I did by interlacing the pieces together, and glued some of cross edges between. I also made the ornate piece under the button  from the cross pieces too.
I added some pearls and an organza flower
from my stash, and wallah you have a very 
pretty bookmark to give a friend or keep yourself.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have managed to do some crafting
in this hot spell. I am very lucky as I have a 
overhead fan on my ceiling in the craft room.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Beautiful bookmark Jenny. I'm absolutely bushwhacked to-day as its been so hot and sunny all day. Not that I've seen very much outside the house, I've been preparing the house for my youngest daughter and family coming to stay and we are going through to the east coast to stay in their house. We always watch their house while they are on holiday anyway, but they want to make our house a base and do some island hopping. Hugs Rita xx

Hi Jenny, I'm back! I loved this bookmark when I first saw it, and still do! Like Carol, you have brought it back to my mind. I did quite a lot too for little gifts. I might have to think about doing more. Love and hugs Christine xx

Patricia said...

Good evening Jenny,
I was sure I commented on this yesterday.
This computer has a thing about your Blog

Anyway I love what you have done with this beautiful Book Mark.
Needs to be a "nice" book for this wonderful creation. Certainly not a blood thirsty "murder"
