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 time for the B Teams challenge over at
and the lovely Judith is our host for this challenge, and she would like to see Die Cut Numbers, Letters or Words on your entries.
This is all just for a place in the top 3 as we have no sponsors, but love to see your wonderful creations entered.
The challenge runs from 10/11/16 and close on Wed 23/11/16 at 1.00PM
 Please pop along to the blog to see the lovely DT cards.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper with the roses on are from Cuddly Buddly Download.
The cooking theme papers are Dovecraft.
I made the apron out of the papers, and decoupaged some of the kitchen utensils.
I then die cut the sentiment twice out of 2 different colour card, and off set them both.

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

You always use these doilies so beautifully on your cards, and I love the apron (?pinny?) placed over the fancy doily. I like the way you've done the apron ties too! It was great that you had all the little tiny cooking motifs to add as embellies to complement your theme and did you ever get the words challenge done so nicely. And as usual, the interior of the card, so beautifully detailed as well. Good luck in getting top 3! Should be #1 IMHO! TFS & Big hugs.

Brilliant design Jenny, a fabulous card for a cook ( or even a non cook who loves watching the cookery programmes on TV - like a very close friend of mine!!) Will have to remember this clever idea for future use!

This is clever I fell in love with it when I saw it on MAWTT and thought I must remember this idea for a friend who loves to BBQ!
Sorry I've missed a few posts I look at blogs stored in folders on my iPod which hasn't been connecting to Internet most days Hopefully I've sorted it now

I love seeing familiar kit used in other people's projects - I know that birthday die and yet it looks so fresh and sweet used in the apron as you have done! Very clever x Jessie
