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 leave.
I very much appreciate everyone that is made.

I enjoyed making my last card so much I thought
I would make another to join in the Pink Gem
They want to see creations with a summer theme
so here is what I came up with.

This is a 7"x7" size concertina card.
The papers I down loaded ages ago, and I can't
remember where they were from.
I glued them to pink card with Collall Photo
The image is a Hunkydory one again, and the 
little girl with the ice cream is a Pink Gem 
Image I chose when I won this challenge last
These are so easy to make, and I know there is
a concertina die, but I haven't got that, and to be
honest I don't think you need it.

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

I would like to enter this into the following

Oh my goodness that icecream van has just transported me back to my childhood days. Love the image. Not heard of a concertina card before so another new shape for me to try out. Love ,love the colours and the butterfly and flower embellishments just perfect for finishing the card off. Thankyou for fluttering by #33. Hugs Mrs A.

This is just lovely with that pretty pink bow and those delightful little flowers! If the ice cream truck came to this neighborhood, I'd flag him down in a heartbeat now! LOL Sweet card with all of the details!

This is great Jenny, lovely scene, so bright and cheerful, the papers are great, just perfect for the theme, lucky you had those, what a match, the little girlie in the corner, so sweet and of course your little flowers and butterfly finish it off a treat, great work, I love it!

Thank you for your lovely comment today Jenny, I really do appreciate your well wishes, I'm playing catch up with comments at the min whilst I can sit with the laptop before I start to hurt again, it's such a nuisance, stops me doing 'stuff'!!
Have a good weekend, hugs Jacee
