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.

I do hope everyone is keeping well, and for those under the weather, and not feeling too good sending big virtual hugs your way to try, and  help.

On Sunday it was my eldest Granddaughter's 30th Birthday so here is the card, and box I made her.

This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit the card. 
The teal card is Creative Expressions, and it cuts like a dream.
The die cut in the middle of the card is a Tattered Lace Botanical Bouquet Floral Frame.
Pearls on a string from my stash.
I added some Cosmic Shimmer Teal pva dots around the edge, and glitter to the wooden numbers.

Thank you so much for you visit, and the wonderful comments that boost my confidence no end.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
