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, and may you visit my blog often.

THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments
on my last card.
I very much appreciate each and everyone that
you make.

Now my last card was a commission, but I got 
the wrong end of the stick.
It was wanted so that the little brother could 
open his own card when the baby arrives.
So the old thinking cap went on again, and here
is what I created.


Now the inside.

This is a 6"x6" size card.

I went around the edges of the card and envelope
with my Promarkers again, but this time I used 
3 colours pink, blue, and green, to give it a 
rainbow effect.
I distress inked the edges of the card and paper,
with Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress
The turtle image was a freebie off the internet,
and coloured in with Promarkers to match the
colours of the card.
The paper was from Joanna Sheens Baby Love
I glued some light blue lace around the hand cut
banner sentiment.
I followed this theme inside, and added a cut up
piece of doily either side the banner.

No die cuts were harmed in this creation. lol.
Thank you again for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Gorgeous Jenny, and what a fab idea to include George and give him his very own card!!
I remember when I had our second Son, the eldest (who was the grand old age of 4!!) asked
" How long will he be staying Mummy?". We laughed!! xx

Goodness Jenny I really do not know what's going on here the first bit of my comment is a right proper mess.

What a thoughtful thing to do for an older child in a new baby family, so he will feel special and not left out of all the attention. I always love the way you use your doilies, and that turtle is going to make this youngster just smile when he sees it just for him. So sweet. Thanks for thinking of us with the weather woes. Thankfully our area is just colder than's our Midwest & Northern states that are dealing with the really awful storms. TFS & Hugs

Sue said...

Hi Jenny, It's easily done, getting the wrong end of the stick, I do it all the time haha. What a quick turnaround, you managed a fabulous card in 'quick sticks', and the little boy will love it when he gets a card too.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Carole Z said...

Hi Jenny, yes I know what you mean about wrong end of the stick, I've been there too :) However your fast turnaround is amazing, I bet the little boy will be thrilled! Fabulous! Carole Z XX
