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.
May I say a big welcome to my latest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope to see you here as often as your time allows.

Today I have a card I made for my daughter to give her little Grandson who turned one at the end of March.
I photographed this before I put the No 1 on it, and the saying inside.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card design is from craftsUprint, and I just added the paper round the edges and some ribbon.
I also decoupaged the elephant.
I tried my hand at foiling with a Sakura quickie glue pen, and some foil I have had for years.
Don't very much like how it turned out so won't be using it again.

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

Oh Jenny this cute little elephant is perfect for a one year old's birthday.
I like the blue and green colours, and the twisted ribbon looks great.
