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 continued support of my blog.
I really do appreciate you giving up your time for 
this visit.

Tomorrow is my Dear Hubbies Birthday so I can
safely show his Birthday Card I made as I know he won't be looking at my blog till tomorrow.
Now he has reached the wonderful age of 75, and
when he was a young man he was a fireman on a
Steam Engine of a train, so I thought this topper
was ideal for this years card.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The topper is a Hunkydory Decoupage one.
The papers printed from a Robert Addams CD
Vintage Transport.
I cut out some of the train tickets decoupaged 
The letters are from an XCut Die.
Now I used lots of snippets from my snippets
box for stamping my sentiment on and my die
cuts, so I am off to the playground with this.
Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Morning Jenny, Happy Birthday to Tony, I hope you have a fabulous day.
This card is brilliant, and would be ideal for my hubby too and also his Brother, who are both Steam Enthusiasts. I bought the Robert Addams CD especially for them, and used it on my B-I-L's card in May.
Enjoy your day together.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
