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.

Had a few busy days getting ready for family who are arriving on the weekend.
Just love it when they visit, but always feel very lonely when they have gone home again.
I expect some of you feel exactly the same too when your family visit that live away from you.

Today I have a card I made to enter the Allsorts challenge, now I have been extremely lucky in this challenge, and won some wonderful prizes  too.
 So here is my card for this weeks challenge.

This is a 8"x6" size tent card.
The image is from the Give it a Squeeze Feathered Friends CD.
The artist is Daphne Baxter.
Instead of doing a squeeze card I just decoupaged the spring flowers, and added black stones to the eyes of the Geese.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

I ma exactly the same when my family have been. And it always seems so quiet ehen it is back to just the two of us again. My sister says the same when I have been staing with her. Your card is lovely with those gorgeous daffodils. MIne are really late - but er are high and very exposed so I suppose it's understandable. Even my snowdrops seemed to take forever! Hope you are well. Hugs Christine xx

Yes indeed Jenny, I too miss them when they go home again, some we see more often but others live far away.

It's a really lovely Spring creation and super dimension of the Daffodila, many thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge.
