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 a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to have a look at my work.

Sorry I have been MIA for so long, but I had family staying for a while, and after they went my Granddaughter, and my Daughter took me to Wales to visit my sister who I hadn't seen for 2 years.
The downside was after the journeys
there and back my back has been playing me up so bad again. 
I suffer with Arthritis all over, and  in my spine too, also my hips are giving me so much trouble at the moment. 
Well enough of my woes I'm sure there are people worse off than me.

I have occasionally made some cards when I have had the time to do so, and feeling out of pain as I had some orders to fulfil, and lots of family Birthdays also.
Here is a card I made from my Grandson who turned 21 on St Patrick's Day.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The 21st Birthday sentiment is a Digi Stamp Boutique download which was part of my winnings in a challenge.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I will try and get around to commenting, but things take me so long to do these days so it may take me a while.

Will be back with my MAWTT DT card tomorrow, and it's another Granson's card.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, What a lovely surprise you have had, and your Sister would have been pleased too.
A lovely card for your Grandson, I bet he loved it.
I hope your pain is more manageable now, I know it must be awful to be in pain all the time. This 'age' thing is not all it's cracked up to be at times, is it. Here's hoping you are feeling much better now.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

I'm so sorry to hear you've been 'down' again, but I'm glad you had happy reasons for it happening. How wonderful that you were able to go visit your sweet sister, and I bet you had some gorgeous scenery on the way. This is a very dramatic card and I think a young man is going to love it just as much as I do! Black & white is always classy, and I love the layout. Hoping that you are continuing to have more pain-free days. TFS & Hugs (Happy Easter too).

Patricia said...

I hope your back eases as time passes, nothing worse than being in pain.
Have a good Easter Weekend

Hi Jenny
Sorry to hear about your pains. I always say that there is always someone worse off than me but, as my good friend Kate always says, that doesn't diminish what you are going through so positive vibes are sent your way.
Brilliant card for your grandson. Bet he loved it, as well as a few glasses of Vimto eh lol?
You take care.

How I have missed seeing your cards Jenny and this one is a fantastic example of what I have missed!! I bet your Grandson loved it. I hope you are in less discomfort now, I am sure this long wet winter hasn't helped with aches and pains...roll on the spring, I say!! xx

Hi Jenny,
I'm sorry to read you have been suffering with your back so much, I hope you will soon be feeling much more comfortable.
I love your card, the black and white is so striking with the fab DSB sentiment (they are so useful aren't they !) The verse inside made me chuckle too.
Big hugs,
Kaz xxx
