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.
A few of you asked how we did last week at the fund raising event.
It was over 2 days last weekend and they took over £1,000 in all, and my stall took £73 over the 2 days.
This is going towards gym equipment for the clients that live at my daughter's place of work.
They all have learning problems, and health issues so it was for a very good cause.

Today I have a 3x3 inch mini book I made because I have been wanting to try this for a long time.

The book actually measures 3 and a quarter inches for the cover, and 3 inches for the pages.
I used a 12x12 size paper for the pages.
For the front and back cover I used a few snippets of paper, some snippets of lace, I also used snippets of card for the tags that go in the pockets.
So I i'll be off to join my playgrounds friends again this week at the snippets playground.
Anyone interested in making one of these can find the U Tube video

Thank you for your visit and time I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is lovely Jenny and something that I'd like to have a go at myself. I'm full of good ideas but I always tend to gravitate towards making a card as that's really my comfort zone. It's good to try something different and you've done a wonderful job here. Well done too on the money that you've raised too for such a good cause. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

I am so pleased that the fund raiser did well and for such a brilliant
Cause too. I really love this mini book Jenny and am amazed at how tiny it is. With all the pretty details that you have added I thought it must be at lease 6x6!! xx

Good grief this must have taken you an age, but it was certainly worth it, a stunning and fabulous creation.
