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 very talented
craft friends and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing again for a while.
As I stated last time Mr Mojo is on walkabouts,
and I am really struggling to create at the mo.
So in between I have been catching up with lots 
I have to get done before I have my op.

Now today I have finished a card for my daughter
in laws Birthday. I really struggled with this it 
took me days rather than just hours.


Now the inside.

Now some cupcakes I made for my little 
granddaughter's Birthday Party.

The card is a 8"x8" size card.
I started by using my Cosmic Shimmer Pearly
Glue to make different size pearly dots, all 
around the card.
I used my Tattered Lace Chantilly Flourish Die,
to create the inner corners.
The flowers are Spellbinders Rose Creations Die,
used in a different way, and distressed with Black 
Soot Distress Ink.
The leaves are from a Cheryl lynn C184 Flower
Die, and cut out on a lovely shimmer paper.
The stamp inside is a saying from a Creative
Expressions Stamp Set.
The Birthday Stamp was a freebie from a
magazine this month, and I used Seafoam White
embossing powder.

Now the cupcakes were made with a mold I 
bought from C and C and sprayed with cake
shimmer spray.

Thank you again for visit and time.
I do hope you all have a really fab weekend.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I love the monochrome card you have produced Jenny. It's really lovely. I think quite a few of us are struggling with getting going after Christmas. I think we all need a swift kick up the rear end! Lol! Love and hugs Christine xx
