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.

May I welcome my newest follower, and thank 
you soooooo! much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you visit me as often as your time can spare.

It is my Grandson's 18th Birthday today so here 
is the card I made him.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers used are from the DCWV 12x12
Butterfly Garden Pad.
I don't know what happened to the top right 
hand corner in the picture as it looks warped, 
but isn't on the card.
Maybe it was due to the pearlised card, and the
The pattern under the gold buttons was cut on 
my ScanNcut, and also the Happy Birthday.
The 18 was cut out on my Cricut machine.

Thank you for your visit and the wonderful
comments you make.
I very much appreciate your visit, and your
precious time spent visiting me.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This card looks so cool!Bet he loved it.

I think you aced the masculine feel of this card. Love the contrast of your patterned papers and the way you reversed them for the words and numbers.

Brilliant card Jenny. I have a Craft Robo and cannot cut anything on it. It will only cut very light weight paper. I have tried all weights of card and have had no luck.

Hope your grandson enjoys his first drink. . . . . . . .lol!

I expect it was the light effects on your pretty card. This is a really mod card, and your 18 yr old is certain to love it. Love the gold numbers (yay for you on using the cricut to do this!) and I like the way you've done those cut-outs with the silver mat too. The papers are so modern and just what young folks will like. I love it too! TFS & Hugs
