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 part of blog land, all my
craft loving friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all enjoying your weekend, 
although the weather is not it's nicest in some parts.
Today as it's Remembrance Sunday, and I have my
poppy card made to commemorate all the very
brave men and women who gave their lives so
we can all be what we are today.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper and the image are from the Creative
Crafting CD A Walk in the Countryside.
I made the ribbon poppy with the ribbon I bought
from  HERE. and there is a lovely video tutorial
on there too, so take a look as their products, they are so good, and the service is excellent and quick,
and you pay no postage for anything over £10 so
it's really good value for money I think.
I also bought my poppy ribbon there too.
I used some Glossy Accents on the magnifying 
I also used some snippets to mount my image on,
and for the inside, so I will be popping in at the 
snippets playground to see what everybody is up
Didn't put a sentiment on it as I don't know yet
who will receive this.

Thank you so much for your visit,
Lots of crafty love.

I would like to enter this into the following

Wow Jenny, this is fantastic! Love your poppy, it's gorgeous and the glossy accents on the magnifying glass was pure genius! Great card! hugs :)

A breathtaking card to commemorate those sacrifices we must never forget. Love the bright red on your lovely poppies, and what a splendid match of the paper with your poppy & the dp & ribbons. The entire look of this card is just so wonderful & evocative of the gentle countryside that I think must be where you live. The shining magnifying glass is such a nice touch with the church spire in the background. I loved all those frames you have on this one, and as usual, the inside is just as lovely in decorations too. TFS & Big Hugs
