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.
May I say a big welcome to my newest follower,
and thank you for choosing to follow me. I do 
hope you enjoy my work and visit often.

Thank you sooooooooo! much for all your 
wonderful comments on my last creation.
I really do appreciate your time and visit.

This is what I have to offer today, it's a Birthday
card for my sister in law.
The dies I used in this were lent to me by my
very good blog friend Christine Harrop, so 
thank you so much for the lend of these dies.
You will find her blog .

Please pay her a visit if you don't already follow
her as she makes such wonderful creations.


Now the inside.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image was from a Cd my hubby bought me
from e Bay.
The papers are from a Crafters Companion  
Floaral 1 CD
I have cut into the Spellbinders 5x7 Elegant
Labels 4 to make a frame for the image.
I added some lace and pearls from my stash.
Now you may notice  I have stamped my 
verse inside as both my printers are on strike. lol.
Blooming printers I have just about had enough
of them, they are driving me and my hubby 
mad. lol.

Thank you again for your visit.
I do hope you are all feeling well, and those
who are not here's hoping you will soon be 
feeling better.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Morning Jenny, Firstly, I have noticed over the last few days, that your little owl is missing ??? is that intentional ???
Secondly, your card is stunning, loving the beautiful angel image, I love anything faerie or angel, and this little one is stunning. Your die-cuts are fabulous, and funnily I was 'dreaming' about this flower die last night, you have broken my dream what a coincidence. I love this !!
Have a lovely Sunday.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi sweetie!
This is a stunning card and those dies are just gorgeous, if I had money I'd buy all the dies of spellbinders lol.
Sorry I've not been around much on others blog been unwell but not sure what it is, constantly exhausted and falling asleep all the time. It's weird.
Anyway glad you've got your watermark sorted and I can't believe you've still not got your printer printing? Is it still playing up?
Did you still need help with that other thing you had issues with on your email? If so just contact me I'd b glad to help.
Hope you are well and your family.
Hugs xx

Hi there me little matey! I love this little image (your Tony is a good un) it looks like a great CD. Beautiful colours as usual, you always seem to get the right shades for everything and this is no exception. I think the little rows of lace on the sides are a brilliant touch, I love this lace! The inside is just as gorgeous as the outside as well.

Oh and thank you so much for the comments on my Santa card - this was a shop bought card I received about two years ago and our challenge was to 'upcycle' something so I cut the picture off my card to reuse it. It's a lovely image, fancy you having a stamp very similar - lurvely!

Big hugs and love to you Sue Pxxx

Jenny a lovely card as usual. Not good that printer isn't working, you don't realise how much you use it until it's broken.
