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.
I would like to welcome my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you can find the time to visit as often as you can spare the time.

Well as promised here is my first attempt at an Exploding box.
I decided to make it a Valentines one, and I used some of my snippets from my Anniversary card to make it.
So I will pop over to the Snippets Playground with this.

Card for the inside is a Cuddly Buddly download, and the Snippets.
Card used for the outside is from Lidl.
Flowers from my stash.
Hearts are a Tonic Die.
The edges is a Tattered Lace Die.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
