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 all are enjoying our heatwave.
Those that find this weather a problem because
of health issues. May I just say I do hope you are coping okay, and I am sending big hugs to make
you be able to cope with it better.

THANK YOU for all your comments on my last
creation. As you know I really do appreciate any
time spent looking and commenting on my blog.

This afternoon I have a card for another of my
grandsons this one lives in West Wales with his
mother and brother. There is 3years seperating
their ages and their Birthdays are 5 days apart
from each other. The youngest also shares his
Birthday with my youngest great granddaughter.
Will show his card in tomorrow.


Now the inside.

This is a 8x8 shaped card I bought at the NEC.
I distressed the whole  of the card with Peeled
Paint Distress Ink to change the colour of it.
The papers are Papermania Capsule Collection.
I used some gold mirror board, and the toppers 
were from Kanban.
I applied some buttons from my stash, and the 
lettering I also bought at the Nec.

Thank you again for your visit and time.
I hope you all continue to have a wonderful
crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
