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 very talented friends,
and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the
wonderful comments you make.
I feel thrilled that you like what I have created.

So onto today's creation.
I made this entirely with snippets from my 
snippets box.
When I make and 8" card out of an A3 size 
card I have a bit left over, which gave me just
the right size for this card.

It was embossed with a freebie embossing 
folder from a craft magazine.
The plant pot is a very old snippet, and I cut
out the flower die, and coloured it with chalk
A very simple card, but the recipient loved it.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Lucky Di to have a "Jenny" original!! It's wonderful and the doily embossing folder looks fabulous. I am ashamed to have not been to the playground lately but I don't like to cheat and time has been too short to go through the bits box!! xx

A great card Jenny and well done for using up bits, mine just seem to grow arms and legs and then I end up sending them down to the local school.
