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.
It's not been a good week for me as my little Great Grandson Ewan who is 20 months old was rushed into hospital after having a seizure with a very high temperature.
He is still in hospital, and hopefully will be home tomorrow.
Off to see him this afternoon.

Today I have a card so I can join in a couple of challenges.
One being the Allsorts and because I used some snippets of cotton lace I will be joining the Snippets Playground also.

This is a 5".5 x7" tent style card.
I matted some lovely bright pink card to the base white card.
Then I added my snippets of lace to it, and a ribbon and bow.
Then I added some lovely material daisies I bought from the works.
The image is a Heartfelt Creations one
The die cuts are from a Tonic die.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I hope Ewan is better soon. Little ones can cause such worry when they spike these high temps and then fit. Very frightening for poor mum to witness. A lovely card for breast cancer month. And since it is pink it is right up your street! Big hugs Chrisitne xx

First of all Jenny, I do hope that little Ewan (and all of you as well!) is making a full recovery. Very scary when little tots fit due to running a high temperature.

Hi Jenny, to start I'd like to say I'm so sorry to hear about little Ewan. What a terrible worrying time for you all. I hope he is now much better. This did happen with my son due to a very high temperature when he was very little but it only ever happened once.
