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 all my craft loving friends, 
and visitors.
I do hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

I went to my Great Granddaughter's party yesterday, as she was away with her parents 
last week so the party was held this week.
Oh it was lovely to see all the young girls 
dancing and enjoying themselves.
Just wish I still had their energy. lol.

Today I have a card I created specially for 
the challenge at the Pink Gem challenge blog.
The challenge wants to see more than one fold,
so this is what I created.

This is the card open.

The image is from the Pink Gem Website, and
is a pr-coloured image, called Faye with Flowers.
 The papers are a freebie digi download, but
sorry I can't remember where, it may have been
from a craft magazine on line.
I added some pink stickles to the center of the
flowers, and lace stickles to the hem, and the
sleeve of her dress.
All other items from my stash to match.
The bright pink card was from my snippets box,
so I'm off to the playground to join in with my
playmates at the snippets challenge.

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

I would like to enter this into the following

Hi Jenny, what a fabulous fold for a start, not a shape that I am familiar with but I'm definitely going to try it!! All the Pink Gem characters are lovely, particularly the girlie ones. Love the perfectly coordinated ribbon too, a perfect match for the paper!! As for dancing, I bought myself a teach yourself ballroom dvd and even though Martin won't be encouraged to join in I can often be found gliding around the house, it's great fun!! xx

Morning Jenny, This is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, I'm loving the image and the colours are very pretty, and a very effective folded card.
I'm glad you had a lovely time with your Great Granddaughter, I can't remember the last time I danced and I've always loved dancing, but my hubby doesn't dance, ohhhhh I'm feeling really nostalgic now hahahaha. Sarah we should get together haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

A stunning fold! So admire this one, Jenny. It's a darling image, the kind you seem to choose so well. Beautifully colored. You amaze me with the ability to make the inside just as pretty & inviting as is the front. Just begs to be opened for more enjoyment. TFS & HUgs
