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 to everyone that visits me, and my very loyal craft loving friends.
Thank your for sparing your time, and the wonderful comments you make on my work.

Now today I have a card I made for my daughter
to give to her work colleague and friend.
Not many die cuts on this one for a change.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
Now I was sorting out some old card I had, and
came across this lovely mint green card, that I 
had bought from The Paper Mill Shop, before it
closed down.
It was a very thick card I would say about 350gsm with slight mottled shine to it.
So now I was stuck what to go with it, and I 
printed off a sheet of paper from my Crafters
Companion CD Cute Companions, now this was
slightly to turquoise for the colour card so I 
tried coping it on my printer, and it came out
just the shade of mint green I wanted luckily.
The middle flower in the center was bought at
the NEC on ribbon with string you pull.
You will find them HERE  if your interested.
My corners were cut out of what would have
gone into the snippets box so I wonder if I 
could be cheeky and join in the playground,
as strictly, my ribbon flower was made from snippets left over.

Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
