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.
Thank you for your comments on my last card, and the cupcakes.
I really do appreciate everyone that you make.

Now a little update on my eye operation.
There will be no op on the 23rd, as when I went 
for my preassesment  this morning, my blood 
pressure was too high. So it's been put back a 
few weeks for me to take medication to bring it

Now today I have a card I made last night.
This has been made with some snippets from 
my snippets box, so Yay I can enter the Pixies
Playground Challenge. 


Now the inside.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
It was a cream card blank, and I went all around
the edge of the card and envelope with a pink
I then distressed the card and paper with Spun
Sugar Distress Ink.
I added the bottom half of the Tattered Lace 
Pram Die cut off in 2 different shades of pink,
to the sides of the topper.
I also used the Promarker round the edge of the
topper and sentiment.

Thank you again for your time and visit.
I hope you are all having a great week.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Oh Jenny that's not good that your op has been put back. Yet again it would be to risky with the high blood pressure. So you will have to be good and let the mediation work. Another beautiful card, I love the colours and layout. Hazel xx

Aww!! Jenny sorry to here about the BP, better safe than sorry though. Your BP was probably up because you were in a medical situation.

Never mind on the good and positive side of things your card is absolutely beautiful.
I always think it is nice for the brother or sister to get a card. It is the one time they feel left out.

Hi there matey - what a lovely card! I never think of putting colour around the edge of the envelope - a brilliant idea! I have been looking at your previous cards and they are all amazing. I wish my Mojo would go wherever yours goes 'cos yours comes back with some lovely ideas! LOL.

Take lots of care of yourself (I've sent you an email re the BP and op)

Big hugs to you both Sue Pxxx

Morning Jenny, So sorry to hear of the postponement of your eye op, here's hoping you won't have to wait long before they can do it for you.
Your card is stunning, I love, love, love, the colours you have used and the paper and focal image are 'darling', I especially love the flower button, it is really pretty.
