Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. I am married to Tony, my dear and wonderful hubby. We have been married for 34 years. I lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 3 Little Great Granddaughters and a Great Grandson. I have been card making for about 17years. 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 warm welcome to my newest follower, and thank you so much for pressing the button to follow me.
I hope to see you visit as often as your time allows.

Today I have another tissue box that I made for my Granddaughter's bedroom out of the paper left over from her wallpaper.

I covered the box with the wallpaer.
The daisies are from The Works.
I cut out some of the Butterflies, and decoupaged them, and added some stones to their bodies, and staymens for the antenna.

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

You are the Queen of the tissue boxes, this is totally stunning and what a fabulous idea.
Could have done with one of your tissue boxes today as it was the funeral of my next door but one neighbour, who was very well thought of in the Brass Band scene and what a funeral, a specially selected group of Bandsmen from our local area played before, during and after the service. Well that was it for me, the minute a brass band strikes up the tears fall, I can't help they just have that effect on me and I have no idea why.
