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 can't believe it's Wednesday already, time seems to be speeding on to Christmas.

Well my granddaughter took me to see Paddington
at the cinema yesterday, and I really enjoyed it.
I do like a film that makes you feel happy watching it.

Today I have a Birthday card for my eldest sister, 
my  2 sisters are just 4 days apart from each others
Birthdays, one is on the 4th and my eldest sister is
on the 8th.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The flowers I used are from and old jumper, 
and don't they look pretty.
I used one of my stick pins I made too, and 
finished it of with some Cosmic Shimmer Gold
PVA glue dots.

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

This is gorgeous Jenny. I do like brown and you don't see many brown cards, though I do use it alot in my scrapbooking.
Glad you like Paddington. I am hoping to see it this weekend. Evenings are short as Hubby works nights and last weekend was a bit of a whirl between our mothers. Both are in hospital 25 miles apart!!

Wow Jenny, this is absolutely gorgeous! Those intricate die cuts look fabulous in the contrasting light and dark! That cosmic shimmer is a real eye catcher, my guess is that the photo doesn't do it justice at all! Your sister will love it! hugs :)

Such an elegant and very classy card Jenny. Love your use of this Sue Wilson die. I have this die and not used it yet - this is a lovely idea.

Darnell said...

Jenny, do your sisters have every incredible card you've made them on display throughout their homes? I'll bet they would if they had room! This is so beautiful!! Hugs, Darnell

Erika said...

Another beauty there Jenny and very classy, great colour combo.
I wanted to take the boys to see Paddington too but guess they're getting a little old. If the oldest doesn't fancy it, which is understandable, the youngest won't go either. Boo!
I might have to just go on my own.

Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x
