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 the start to another week, and I do hope 
you all have a fab week.

Thank you for so many wonderful comments,
on my last card.
I really appreciate your time spent visiting, and
commenting on my work.

Today I have something a little different to show
I was watching a tutorial on UTube and as it 
ended I saw these lovely flowers made by a 
few wonderful people, so I though I would have
a go.
Here is my effort.


Some of these were made with some lovely 
crochet pieces that the lovely Linda Burrows
sent me, and some were made with lovely little
crochet doilies and pieces that Linda Wescott
also sent me. 
Thank you to both those lovely ladies, and I do 
hope your health improves and you can start
posting your wonderful creations again.
The rest were made from bits of lace and cloth
I inherited from my mother, all except one which
I made out of the welt of my husbands old Tee-Shirt.
Now there are quite a few tutorials on these, so 
I have put a link to one HERE then when it ends
it will lead you into lots more to watch.
 I do hope you like my effort.
I nearly forgot to say the back cardboard discs 
 are from my snippets box, so I will 
Joining the Snippets Playground with these.
I will add some felt on the back if I make a brooch with any of them.

Thank you again for visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Fabulous Jenny! Of course bits of lace and such also count as snippets :) I'm off to check the link right now - apparently big flowers are 'in' this year for paper crafters!

Planetsusie said...

Wow Jenny these are gorgeous! They look so pretty and would really brighten up a plain top if you made some into brooches. I love them. Blossom was on my desk this afternoon (only 'cos her dad is at work!!) and she was looking very closely at the lovely butterfly you crocheted me! Told her she couldn't have it!!!! One cat now in a sulk.

Big hugs to you and Tee shirtless Tony!
