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.

Hi and good evening dear and talented blog
friends and visitors to my blog.

THANK YOU for all your super comments on my  last card.
I am glad you all liked it so much, it means a 
great deal to me having you visit me, and  I love
reading your wonderful comments.

I tried to comment today while looking after 
Ellie with my i pad but I seemed to get in a knot
with the comments, must practice more with it.
 I'm not sure if I will be able to comment 
tomorrow as I have Ellie to look after again,
and tonight I have to make Ellie's Birthday
card, and I am way behind with a few others,
I have to make also.
Friday is also not a good day as I am looking
after my other grandchildren in the morning,
and out singing at a nursing home in the 
afternoon. So hope fully I will be back in 
comment mode again by Saturday. 

Tonight I have a quick card I made for my 
Aunt who lives in Australia. She will be
92 in August.
This is a twisted easel and my first attempt 
at this type of card.


Now the side view.

This is a 5x5 size card tried to keep it small
and flat because of the postage costs.
The papers used were in a book I bought a 
few months ago at the supermarket, and also
the sentiment and flower were in there too.
Just added some metal butterflies and 
dragonfly from my stash.
The corners were from my  Di-namics 
Corner Dies, and a teardrop circle in the
center as the stopper.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
