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 time.
It is much appreciated.

Well it's Friday and time to join Erika HERE with an Oldie for Friday.
It's been a few weeks since I was able to join in.
Today is my eldest Granddaughter's Birthday, and she turns 29 today.
So here is a card I made her a long time ago.

This is my usual fave size 8"x8".
The doily at the back I embossed from a special touch mask, and cut out by hand with a craft knife.

Thank you again for you visit.
I do hope you all have a wonderful day, and the weather is being kind to you.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
