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 here we are again it's the weekend, I do 
hope you are all enjoying the Sunshine where
ever you may live.
It is wonderful in my part of Kent, lots of spring
flowers poking their heads out of my pots.
So maybe spring is on it's way, but don't hold 
your breath all could change as it snowed in
late March last year.
Oh no I have said the S word. lol.

Thank you for all your really great comments 
on my box.

Today I have a shabby chic card, now I don't
very often make one of these, but I was watching 
C and C last week, as me and hubby do every
morning while drinking our first cup of tea, and
we saw Nancy demonstrating this lovely CD.
So I was tempted into buying it, and here is
the result.


Now the inside.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers and the image are from the My Craft
Studio Shabby CDs.
I distressed the edges with scissors as Nancy did,
as I haven't a distress tool.
I decoupaged the image and the flowers, then I
added some peach leaves, and some die cut bitty
blossoms made with a contrast printed card.
I then added some string pearls from my stash,
and lastly a stick pin I made last year.
I do hope you like my effort.

Thank you again for sparing your precious 
time to visit me.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is so beautiful Jenny - I love how you have used the pink beads on the front - as well as your superb pin. Wow! Great little arrangement of flowers on the corner and of course the inside is as pretty as the outside!

By the way you are lucky to have Tony watching C&C with you - Graham would rather sit in a bath of cold beans!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Another beautiful & gorgeous card from Miss Jenny! Saw your win at the Playground, and wanted to say Big Congratulations. So then I get to enjoy what you did with this lovely image, and you always make it 'your own', with the beautiful flowers - which I envy! - and the delicate pearls, and all the detail you manage to get onto the front. Then I look at the inside, and drool some more. I seldom finish the inside until I need the card. I always leave here, saying "I need to do that too". Alas, I tend to get the lazies! This is simply beautiful, as your cards always are! TFS & hugs.
