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.
Well it's another really drab and very wet day,
here in Kent or my part of Kent.
I do hope you are experiencing better weather
where ever you may live.

Thank you again for all time and comments on
my work.
I do very much appreciate your lovely comments.

Today I have a card I made with some freebie
Hunkydory card and images, that was a freebie,
with a craft magazine.


Now the inside.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
As I stated this was a Hunkydory image and
I copied the paper so I had my usual one to 
co- ordinate inside.
I decided to add part of some pink craft doilies,
to the upper part, and bottom of this card.
Now this was my idea, but I noticed on reading
the magazine the freebie came from, that one of
the designers in the magazine had also used a 
similar idea. So I am pleased that I am thinking on the lines of craft designers.
My flowers at the top and bottom are made with
the smallest Britannia Rose Die.

Thank you again for you visit.
I do hope you are ll having a wonderful week
so far.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A brilliant card Jenny, I love the vibrant colours of the papers and the bird image is beautiful.
I love how you have colour co-ordinated the small flowers and added a gem to the centre.

Hi Jenny, You have created a fabulous card here, loving the doily placements and the beautiful colours. Wowee, a designer in the making, well done Jenny.
We have had torrential rain here, I am totally fed up with it, but would much rather have it rather than snow and ice haha.
Enjoy your day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Great card Jenny love how you have used the papers.
I have them sitting in a bundle, read the Magazine but forgot about the papers.

Oh how pretty & your usual style of gorgeous on the interior as well. You folks in the UK get the best freebie magazine supplies! The front of the card is so lovely, with that bird oval, and I'm liking your doily motif as the border. So many wonderful things for some good eye candy on this one! TFS & Hugs
