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 all my craft loving friends,
and visitors.
Thank you soooooooo! much for all your good
wishes about my eye op.
I have decided to listen to music and listening
books while having to do the posture thing for
5 days, that should take away the boredom. lol.

Thank you also for all your really kind comments
on my last card.
I have had a commission come in for 2 Wedding
Cards and Boxes, and also a Golden Wedding 
Anniversary Card and Box.
So I am eager to get these finished in case I get
called in for the op, so excuse me if I miss
commenting on your super creations at some
time in the next week or so.

My card today is an Autumnal Card.


Now the inside.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The paper used was from a few lovely snippets
of paper that I inherited from my Aunt after she
passed away. I just copied the small piece so I
could use it inside my card, because you know 
how I love to  have the inside to match.
The owl is a Tattered Lace Die I bought at 
Hobbycraft last week, I saw it and had to have 
it, as you do. lol.
I made my rosette with my Hougie Board.
The ribbon and leaf charm I won on a blog
hop last year.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Anyone not feeling to well at this moment, I 
am sending big Get Well wishes, and hugs,
your way.
Lots of love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this card into the following

Hello there me little matey! I saw the die but hadn't realised just how beautiful it was until I saw your gorgeous card!!! Your papers are perfect for the scene! I needed to look more closely so I opened it up in another tab and noticed the edge of the rosette - how lovely! Must ask you what is in the middle of the rosette though - it looks very 'antiquey'!!

Glad you have decided on a few things to do while you are 'in the position'!

Big hugs to you my friend

Another beautiful card, Jenny that's not good that you have to spend 5 days be uncomfortable, but if it makes your life better for it, it will be worth it. Hazel xx

Sarah said...

Jenny, I love this card. So much attention to detail! The owl is beautiful, it looks like you have cut it from foil! Loving the bow and charm!xx

Sue said...

This is gorgeous Jenny. I love the die cut owls. The papers and details are all so beautiful.

Patricia said...

OMG!! Jenny, I am so sorry I have been rushing to get comments in on my favourite Blogs that I have missed reading about your eye op. My friend had that done last year and was great success. She found the leaning over a bit of a pain but said it was not nearly as bad as she thought it would be. Her eye is wonderful and sees so clearly out of it. It also looks really bright and clear.
Loving everything about your stunning card.....what about those eyes!!!!
Sorry about the "pun" but his eyes are great

Hi Jenny
Your owl is super as is your card. Hopefully the 5 days of strange positions will be worth it chuck.

Hi Jenny

What a fabulous card - I've fallen in love with the owl especially. Great Autumn papers there too and such a clever idea to copy one. A tip top card - and here's hoping again that your eye op. is a great success and that you're soon playing hop scotch in the Playground.

Love and hugs, Di xx
