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 afternoon dear friends and visitors
Well it's a little bit cooler in my part of the UK.
A Tad windy but a girl needs to cool down now
and then doesn't she so I'm a happy bunny. lol.
I do hope the weather where you are, is to your

This morning I suddenly remembered my step
daughters anniversary is today, so I have been
busy making this card to take over to her.
Just waiting for the glue to dry a little more.
I have also been making a wedding card and
box for my Son to take to a wedding on 


Now the inside.

This is an 8x8 size card.
I distress inked my embossing folder with
Tumbled Glass Distress ink.
My flowers and leaves are a Cheryl Lynne 
Floral Die C184, I had for my Birthday in 
March, and this is the first time I have used
The lovely pearls in the center of the flowers 
were given me by my lovely little blogging 
matey SueJ. Thank you Sue.
I have used the Spellbinders Grand Decorative
Circles. I do love this die.
Marianne Creatable Corner Die.
The lovely cord I threaded through the grand
circle die was from when my Dad used to do 
knitting on a knitting machine.

Thank you for your visit and wonderful
I do hope you are enjoying your Wednesday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Mornin' matey! I think the colour of your card is such a gorgeous shade of blue! I must admit I went into a hot flush when I thought you had suddenly made this 'cos you had remembered their anniversary. As you know I would still be thinking about what I was going to make - 'cos I just can't work as quickly as you. I just wish I had half your imagination. You never cease to amaze me matey!

Hugs to you and thank you for the 'thoughtful' cake for our anniversary - lol!!
