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.
I would like to welcome my newest follower, 
and thank you so much for choosing to follow me,
and I do hope you pop by as often as your time allows. 

Sorry I have been AWOL for a few days.
Have been very busy making more cakes for
the Macmillan Coffee morning tomorrow, this 
is my second round of making cakes, as last 
week I made them for my daughter's works
coffee morning.
Phew I don't want to bake another cake for 
a while now.
Standing and baking has aggravated my hips,
so I have been having a few probs there too.
I also have had a family bereavement, my 
dear uncle and the last of my Dad's siblings
has passed away.
So I didn't feel much like blogging.

Today I have an Anniversary card I should
have posted yesterday, as it was a blog friends
25th Wedding Anniversary.
I think she has received it now hopefully.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I embossed my card with the Teresa Collins
embossing folder Sophisticated.
The backing to my hearts is Indigo Blu Mica
Flakes Eton Mess
The Heart Die is Tonic.
The leaves are the Sue Wilson Faux Quilled
Leaves Die.
I made the organza flowers, again with my 
heat gun.

I am off to the hospital tomorrow, about the
top of my spine, so we will see what's going
with it.
Thank you for you visit and your wonderful
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I can well understand that you probably don't even want to _EAT_ a piece of cake just now, after all that standing & baking. But how generous of you to do all that labor for such a worthy cause. Good luck with your dr's appt. Hope you hear something beneficial at your dr's appointment. Back pain is so debilitating. Condolences on your family loss as well. Your anniversary card is just magnificent. Love all the delicious embossing and that gorgeous heart over the gilding. Such beautiful dies in this beauty. I love those SWilson dies. Whomever receives this will know what a treasure you've given them to celebrate their special day. TFS & good luck. Hugs
