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 welcome to my blog, all my craft loving
friends and visitors.
I do hope you have had a really good week.

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

Today I have the box to go with the card.
I ran out of the darker blue card so I
improvised by colouring my white card with
a Tria Marker. 
The blue card on the banner is the original colour
card. So it wasn't a bad match, I think.


Now to a couple of pictures for Bibiana who 
is celebrating her first year blogging this week.
I promised on her blog to post this today.

This is my camellia.

This is my Orchid.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy
day to pay my blog this visit.
Oh before I go did anybody notice, I had left 
a pearl off one of the points of the Baby Card
yesterday. It's funny how you don't notice it
till it's up on your blog. I have now rectified
I do hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Morning Jenny, This is a fabulous box to go with your fabulous card, I hadn't actually noticed that a pearl was missing off the tip of the circle border punch, it is amazing how the eyes deceive !!
These piccies of flowers are stunning pics, I too have an orchid, that was a Christmas prezzie off my next-door-neighbour and it was beautiful then, but it has re-flowered in the summer, and there are 'tons' of flowers on it, and the tip that I was given at Christmas, was to only water very, very sparingly, that was 'music to my ears' ha ha, and it has worked !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Jenny
Your box is as stunning as the card. Fab!
I am an orchidaholic. . . . . I currently have 17! I've had some of them years and yes you water them well but infrequently.
Congratulations to Bibiana for her blog birthday.
Have a great day.

Good afternoon Jenny, that box is so beautiful
Your flowers are stunning, I have an Orchid that Hazel gave us 9 years ago it is just beginning to burst out. We got it in September and every September it flowers and lasts for ages. Hopefully tomorrow (1st Sep) the flowers will be there.
Have a Great Weekend

Hi there Matey (aka Fairy Whiplash) You know by now that I was soooooo chuffed with my buttefly magnet for my TV Arm(that's where I put it to keep my important notices - yay!!) but I am just doing a bit of flitting around blogland and saw your gorgeous flowery plants. They look absolutely wonderful ..... and no bugs!!! There has been a bloomin' bumper crop of butterflies in the garden with an even bigger bumper crop of ruddy caterpillars. They have totally eaten my delphiniums and are on the new Clematis we bought a few months ago! So, in other words, it is really nice to see two lovely healthy plants.

Ohh was that a tad wafferly???? LOL!!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Bug hugs matey - Sue Pxxx

Eh up Matey - that was so wafferly I forgot to mention your gorgeous cardbox. I think it is beautiful and I am amazed at how you managed to get those blues so perfect. Mine would probably look like a dog's dinner!! LOL.

Catch up with you later.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
