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 very talented
friends, and visitors.
 I do hope you are enjoying your weekend, and
the weather is being kind to you all.

Thank you for your visit, and your wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate every comment you make.

Today I have a card I was asked to make by
my sisters friend for her grandson's 18th  
Sorry this is a bit picture heavy.

This is a 8"x8" size card and box to fit.
The football paper is from the Crafters
Companion CD Mens Collection, and is quite
an old cd.
Computer generated sentiment.
Number eighteen made from a numbers 
template, and embossed with  M- Bossabilities 
So Trendy.
I forgot to say my football boots, and football were snippets from another card, and I also mounted some of my photos onto some snippets too, so I'm off to play in the snippets playground
with this.

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

I would like to enter this into the following

Your family know exactly who to ask to make fab special birthday cards. Love the colors & the way you've added the special motifs to celebrate this young man's 18th day. The insides are combined so nicely with the front of the card, and I'm sure he will keep this for a long, long time to remember this big milestone day. A beautiful card. TFS & big hugs.
