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 a very warm welcome to everyone that
stops here to see what I have created.

Well it's the weekend again and I do so hope
you are all having lovely weather in your part
of the country.

My card today is my one I made for Ellie's 
Birthday last Tuesday.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used a Hunkydory image decoupaged for the
front as I thought it looked like Ellie.
I used some die cut snippets cut out for another
project and not used round the image.
The paper is from Crafters Companion CD
printed onto pearlised card.

Thank you for your time and the wonderful 
comments that you make.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

This is so pretty. The little image so realistic...the 3D is fabullous

You always finish the inside of your cards so wonderfully. My resolve to get at least something inside has fallen by the wayside. I need to take a lesson from you. Yours are always wonderful!

Evening Jenny, This card for Ellie is absolutely gorgeous, I'm loving the focal image, she is so very pretty.
Yesterday we had rain, rain, and more rain. Today I was praying that the weather would stay fine so I could do my front garden. I arrived home from Church, got changed and straight into the garden, I did the first side of the grass (we have a little path through the grass leading upto the front door), then on the second half I wish you could have seen me it must have been so comical, it started looking like rain so I was doing my 'stripes' extra fast, up down up down trying to race the rain haha. Then as I was putting the lawnmower away the heavens opened so inside I went and waited for a few minutes for it to pass, then out again, I was like that until I finished it hahaha, but at least I got it done. Then the weather brightened up again, but it's turned yucky again now. Let's hope tomorrow brings some lovely sunshine.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I thought the card you made the other day for your daughter to give to Ellie was spectacular, but now I'm not sure which one I like best, Jenny! This one is just as divine as the other one! That little girl is spoiled for cards!! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Jenny
How spooky . I was just looking at this when my tablet trilled to your comments on my blog!
Your Ellie's card is beyond gorgeous. I would've loved a card like this at 3 (or even 43 to be honest lol!)
Yes, my roses are little stamps from Card -io. So versatile as you can stamp up a garden with them.
Have a great day.
