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.
Well another weekend is here already, my how time is marching on to the C time of year.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog,
and making such great comments on my work.

Coffee morning was a success we raised over
£200 pounds for the Macmillen Nurses.

My card today is one I made quite quickly last
night for one of my granddaughters who has 
just passed her test.


Now the inside.

This is a 4"x4" size card.
I matted the card with some black card.
I then cut out 16 Spellbinders Parisian Corner
Die pieces, and glued 4 of them back to back,
to create the squares you see.
I put 4 on this card, then added some black
pearls from my stash.
I added a congratulations banner, and did my 
usual inside.
I do hope you like this as I love the all different
designs it makes on the card.

Now I have a lovely card sent to me by my
lovely and wonderful little blogging matey
Sue J or Olliesmam. She sent me this beautiful
card and some lovely stamped images to colour.
Thank you SOOOOOOOOO! much Sue.

She does some lovely work so if your interested
please make her a visit, if your not already one
of her lovely followers.

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

Well done on the fundraising Jenny!

Love the card you made, and it's good to see something other than 'torn up L plates' as the theme - I never seem to be able to think beyond that one!

And a lovely card from Sue too.

Hugs, Di xx
