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
craft loving friends, and visitors.
Well here we are again on Sunday, and the days are marching on to Christmas.
I don't know about you but I am getting very little 
time to craft and comment at the mo.
Just so much to do especially with 12 grandchildren, and 2 little great grandchildren to buy for, and also trying to get fitter, after my 
slipped disk episode.

This morning I spent at my Son's house helping
my 10 year old grandson make a lemon drizzle
cake, while his parents, and his sister went to my
Son's work pantomime.
Dylan thinks he is to cool to go to pantomimes
I must say he made an excellent job of the lemon
drizzle cake, and he enjoys cooking.
He is also making a Christmas Cake at school.

So on to my Baby Shower card, got a phone call
on Thursday to ask if I could make one for 
Sunday as my granddaughter was going to a Baby Shower.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made all the items used on this card on the 
Brother ScanNCut.
I downloaded the trellis design from John Bloodworth the Gentlman Crafter's blog so 
thank  you very much for the files John.
The inside was a mask I bought ages ago, and I
scanned it in and it cut it out beautifully, and so
much time saved there.

Thank you for your visit, time, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
