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 4 Great Granddaughters and 2 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.

Sorry I have been missing for a few days, but my bathroom is being re-done, and I can't believe how much you store in there till you have to remove it all and put somewhere else in the house.
It definitely can't fit in my craft room as that's full to the brim with my craft stash. lol.

Yesterday I did find a little time to make a card for the Allsorts Challenge as the theme for this week is food.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The digi image is From the Heart Digi Stamps, and I coloured it in with Promarkers.
The papers are from Cuddly Buddly Crafts, and are a download.
I put glossy accents on the tomato  ketchup, and the lettuce.
The sentiment came with the digi stamp too. 

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Fabulous card Jenny. So colourful and cheery. Sounds as if you are busy too. We are thinking about a new kitchen, but the garage is empty so it would be handy for all the stuff we hoard in our kitchen,. Just think how lovely your bathroom will be when finished. Take Care. Hugs Rita xxxx

Fabulous fun card Jenny, a super image and great colours.
As for the fruit scone recipe, it's a Mary Berry and I got it off the net, I just googled fruit scones and a selection came up Mary Berry's recipes are foolproof. If you don't find it let me know, Kate x

Christine Harrop said...

Now I can't stand burgers - but I might have to make an exception for this one Jenny! Lol! The candle in it made me smile and the sentiment is perfect! Hugs Christine xx

Your card is absolutely perfect for our 'Food' theme this week Jenny, many thanks for sharing with us at Allsort 'Food' challenge this week.

And don't remind me about bathroom clear outs, our ensuite is being done in a couple of weeks and I keep putting off the dreaded clear out as I know how much sheer junk I have hoarded.

So's making me hungry. I always love how you finish off the insides just as perfectly as the front & continue your theme inside too. Love the gingham. I can well believe the chore of unloading the bathroom for reno, and trying to find places to put all the stuff you didn't even realize you had in there. I found it's also a good time to clean out out-of-date stuff. I threw out enough expired medicine, I could have bought a couple of Alex cabinets!!! Good luck, and hope the process goes smoothly and quickly! (the two things don't always go hand-in-hand, but I hope yours will!) TFS & Hugs

Super card Jenny, great design and papers and a really fun image and sentiment xx

Janice said...

Hi Jenny, I know exactly what you are going through, as I have just had my shower room re-done. Added to the chaos, we changed the boiler and knocked down a chimney breast too. You can imagine the mess !!! Onto nicer things and your card, as always, is great. Image, colours, lay-out - you've got the lot just right !! Janice xx

Pamellia said...

This card made me smile this morning Jenny. What a fun theme for a birthday. That image is super cute and the bright colours are so cheery. Love the text paper panel in the background, and the sentiment couldn't be more perfect! Amazing design! hugs :)

Good for you for getting your bathroom redone Jenny! But I feel your pain with putting bathroom stuff somewhere. lol I have that same problem when we redo things around here! OMGosh, I love this card!!! I'm telling you, that burger looks mighty good! But it is those cute birds peeping out that cracks me up!! What a fabulous birthday card Jenny! Hugs, Brenda
