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 forgot to say welcome to my newest follower
in my last post, so a big warm welcome her, a bit
late I know, but better late than never as the saying
Thank you for choosing to follow me, and I do
hope you can pop by as often as you can.

Thank you also to all my lovely friends who
continually support my work.

Well you know when I make my boxes for the
8" cards, I have this amount left over that makes
a lovely little box that would hold a brooch or
So hear is one I made a while ago, and have 
never shown.

Now this box board is white, so I coloured it
with Peacock DI.
The flower is made up from some old petals I
had hanging around.
The center piece is from a bracelet I bought at
Primark to take apart for such things as this and
The Leaves are coloured with Promarkers and
cut out with the Susan's garden Poinsettia Die.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
