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 feeling well, and for those who may be suffering in any way BIG HUGS winging their way to you.

Well July is one of the months that I have a lot of family Birthdays, and Anniversaries to make cards for.
2 Older Grandsons, and 2 Great Granddaughter's Birthdays.
My eldest Granddaughter's 5th Anniversary, and my sister's Anniversary.
Oh my word I better get a move on.
Funnily enough the Challenge Theme over at Allsorts is sport so with that in mind I made my one Grandson's Birthday cards.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The racing motor bikes image is from the Hunkydory little book of decoupage.
I made the motor bike backing paper with my 3D2 CD.
The Happy Birthday paper is a download from Cuddly Buddly Crafts.
Verse inside is from my Verse Editor CD. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments about my Granddaughter's picture.
It is her 5th Wedding Anniversary on the 14th of this month.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

What a fabulous masculine creation Jenny! I love that motorcycle image as the focal piece and I love the way the theme carries to the other elements as well. The corner pieces really make that image feel like a photograph, amazing! The text background is super fun, what an amazing design for a male birthday! hugs :)
