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 dear craft loving friends,
and visitors.
 Now don't faint it's me again after another break.
Still having problems with my neck and shoulders
if I do too much crafting or typing, but I am trying
to get my children's Christmas cards done in small
snaps of crafting that I can manage.

Thank you so much for all your get well wishes,
and comments.

I have a card today to enter into the Pixies 
Playground snippets challenge as I used some
snippets from my snippets box.


Now the inside.

This is a 5"x5" size card.
I distressed the edges of the card and paper 
Fire Brick Distress Ink
I made my ribbon wreath and added a stamped
sentiment in the center and inside the card.
If any of you would like the info of how to do
the ribbon weaving you will find it  HERE .

Thank you again for your visit and time at this
busy Season.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Hi Jenny
Sorry all has not been well with you. Hopefully the forthcoming festivities will give you a bit of cheer.
Cracking card. I've made a green wreath but hadn't got round to using it. Popped it on one card then took it off again. Think I made it too long as yours looks much better.
Hope you feel better soon.
