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 friends, and
Thank you so much for your visit, and your fab
comments you make on my work.
I very much appreciate your time spent visiting 

Today I have a card I made for my brother in
law's Birthday last week.
Now I think this is a CAS card, and as my regular 
friends will know, I don't very often make one of
these type of cards, but I was a bit pushed for
So this was thrown together rather rapidly I'm

This is a 8"x8" size card, made from PMD
A3 white card.
The topper is a Hunkydory Topper from thier
decoupage pad.
I used the embossing folder Beautiful Words by
Teresa Collins, and inked it with Tea Dye DI,
before embossing it.
The paper is a free download from Crafters
I added some stickles to the sea, and gold 
stickles to the lighthouse.
Nimbus items used on this are the topper, and
the embossing folder.
I also used up some Snippets to mount my 
topper onto, and to create the banner inside.
So off I go to join both these wonderful 
challenges again.

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

I would like to enter these into the following

Hi Jenny
I too am chuckling at the "thrown together". It certainly doesn't look that way. Love the topper. They are quite useful for a quick card.
Best wishes.

Gorgeous card Jenny, lovely layout and very stylish finish. Love the inside too.
I must have a better look round your blog and have joined your followers so I don't miss anything. Happy crafting, Angela x

Even your 'thrown together' cards have such infinite detail added. The topper was bright & cheery, and you added to the feel of fun with the border paper at the top, and that fun embossed paper on the bottom. As ever, the interior of your cards is more detail, carrying through with the trims you've used on the front and the banner sentiment. It's delightful and will be thoroughly loved. I wish you could come play just as much as you do!!!! Think about it! Hugs & TFS

Well Jenny, you know me, I'm a big fan of CAS cards just now. Great colour combo and perfect for a mans card. I love it.

This is a lovely card, Jenny. I make all different types of cards...depending on the business of my week...or day! I figure it all balances out in the end.
