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 yet again to my blog,  all my 
talented craft friends, and visitors.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my
last card.
I really do love hearing what you think of my 

Well today I thought I would make my 3rd entry
for the Snippets Playground Challenge.
So here is the box I made with lots out of my 
snippets box, including the lace.


Now another view of the box.

When I make my 8"x8" boxes out of A3 box 
board I have a 6" piece left over from the top,
and bottom so I cut this down to 6"x6" square
to make this box.
I made the flower on top the other day, so this
box took me just over an hour to make.
I used my Tonic Diamond Swing punch to 
edge the box, with some card from my snippets box, and added some pearly bits from my stash.
I die Cit 4 Spellbinders Parisian Corners and 
added more pearls, and wallah you have a 
lovely box.
Hope you like it. 

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
