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 for your visit, and time.
I have been having quite a few probs with my new computer, as it's a Mac.
 On my old iMac I used to run virtual box to use my crafting CDs, as most are made for windows programs.
Well hubby decided to give me his old computer to run my windows CDs, so I was running them by switching from
one system to another which confused the Mac, and gave me problems, and transferring all my stuff was a real nightmare, and hubby is quite good with computers, but even he was loosing the will to live after all the problems we had.
So I am just using his Sony computer which uses windows.
Now I used to use this computer with
windows xp, so now I have a learning curve with windows 7.
I know that's an old version too, but my computer is old , and only a 32 bit machine not 62 like the newer ones.
There lies another problem as a 62 bit computer won't run my older crafting CDs.
Well that's enough of my probs hopefully for now.

So as it's Friday already it's time to join ERIKA HERE with a Oldie for Friday.
Just post something you have posted before on you blog, and leave a comment on Erika's post, and she will visit you in return.
So here is my Oldie for this week.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used Spellbinders Die cut that a 
blog friend sent me in the center of
a Spellbinders Label 1 Die.

Thank you so much again for you 
patience with my return comments,
as I am on a big learning curve, and
at my age it wears you out. LOL.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is simply stunning with that pastel aqua color and all the white! I too used Windows XP and I loved it more than any other version of Windows. It worked!!! Good luck with the new pc!

Hi Jenny thanks for sharing an oldie with me this weekend, I've been away so just getting near a computer to see everyone's shares.
I love your WOW die cut card, great layering of dies and perfect for the occasion.
