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 craft loving
friends, and visitors.
I do hope your week has started well, and for
those of you experiencing problems of any sort
a BIG HUG winging it's way to help you cope.

I have a card I made very quickly, and flat today,
as it had to be posted to New Zealand.
Oh this was so hard for me, as I love to embellish 
with lots of items from my stash.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
Green papers from a CD, and the orange ones
I can't remember who's they are.
The image is from the Joanna Sheen pad of 
Faye Whittaker images, and I thought it 
appropriate as it's for my husbands sister, and 
there is only 2 of them left out of 4 siblings, and
she is the elder of them.

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

Morning Jenny, Your hubby's Sister will love this card. I love the combination of colours, and the image is gorgeous. I'm the same as you, I love to embellish my cards (in fact I go OTT very often hahaha).
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Brilliant card Jenny, oh! dear it really must have been hard for you.
However it is stil a great card.
That "scene" was the first thing I ever "cross stitched" not very well I may add.
Have a great day

What a sweet card, and at first it looked like the image was watercolored! I love the ships in the background! Adorable card - I'm sure she loved it!

Liz said...

Lovely card, Jenny, with a beautiful image. I love how you've added the same image in the little hearts. Great addition of bunting to match the bunting in the image. xx

Jean said...

Lovely card Jenny, I love all the Faye Wittaker images. Your coloured papers look great with this one and I like the added bunting.

This is fabulous Jenny and you have reminded me that I have this pad...somewhere!! Must get it out!! The inside is as fabulous as the outside and it's sure to be well received xx

Hi Jenny, well I think you've done a grand job with your flat card. I am making more and more like this now with the postage charges but I agree sometimes it's so difficult not to embellish.
I love the cute wee image on the front, I'm sure the recipient in NZ will love it.

Hugs Erika. x
