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 talented friends, and visitors.
I am so sorry I have been missing again, but as
some of you suggested I have had quite a few 
orders when my daughter's colleagues saw my
Baby Card.
I also have been making milk carton boxes for
the craft fair on Saturday.
Originally I was only going to help my niece 
with her stall, but my sister in law suggested I
take some of my craft things as well.
Now my niece is disabled and makes brilliant
cards, so I didn't want more of the same thing
on the stall so I was in a quandary what to do 
till I was visiting Carole Zorro's blog and she 
had these lovely milk cartons on there.
You will find her blog HERE  please try and
make her a visit as she makes wonderful cards,
and other fabulous projects.

So here is what I have been working on.

Now I made all these with the Lidl card I 
bought a few weeks ago, just adding a few 
embellies. This card was slightly bigger than A4., and there was 30 sheets of it for the gorgeous 
price of £1-99. So I do hope they get some more
in soon. 
I have also made some jewellery boxes out of snippets, so I will show them next week.

Thank you again for your visit and comments,
I really do appreciate your time spent visiting me.
Hopefully I will manage to get round to visting
you also, with the heavy work load I have  at the moment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Love them all Jenny. I tried Lidl last week and they never had any. I travelled seven miles by bus and I was so disappointed. Hugs Rita xxx

Hazel said...

Jenny your boxes are fab, Lidl card is great, I love using it. I keeping hoping they get glue guns in at some point, I had one from there a few years ago and I got a few boxes of glue sticks too, had to buy a new gun but still have sticks thankfully they fit my new one, but it was a good price. Hope your fair goes well, these boxes won't last long I am sure . Hazel xxx
