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 craft loving friends, and visitors.
I notice I have another follower, but I am not sure who you are, so welcome to my blog, and thank you for joining me in my crafting journey.
Well we have been having some glorious weather here in Kent, but it is still a tad cold, but at least the sun shines nicely, and it's not dull, and drab.

Today I have a card I made for my Brother in Law who's Birthday was on Sunday.
It was his first since loosing my sister.

This was a card kit from craftsUprint.
I decoupaged the watch and put the date of his Birthday on the date of the watch, then added glossy accents to it.
I cut part of the inside picture away as I wrote on it before I decided to photograph it.

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