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.

Now Jenny my two grandsons would love this card, they both love minecraft, drives me about daft when there here and playing it. Like your grandson they are limited to how long they can play it, will have to keep this one in mind when it grandsons birthday, your card is bound to get pride of place and he will have a few jealous friends when they see it.

Fabulous card! I am drooling over that Happy Birthday die that came free with a magazine! I so enjoyed collecting magazines when I was in England!
A friend just told me that one of your magazines that gives out freebies is available here...but we are not sure if the wonderful gifts are inside...I am now on a mission to find one! teehee.

Love the dies used, the pretty inking of the inside circle dies, the papers and the giant ten! I am sure he just loved your card...10 is such a wonderful age!.

Hi Jenny, This is a fabulous card for your Brother in Law, Alan, he will love it when he receives it. You always seem to get the right papers and toppers for the men in your life, it always amazes me. My Dad would have loved this card, as he was a Physical Training Instructor in the RAF, he was most upset when I joined the Womens' Royal Army Corps haha. A fabulous card.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
