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

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

Decided to have a change around in my craft room, and boy oh boy I wished I hadn't started it, as my back is giving me jib now.

Felt slightly better today so I made this card quickly for the Allsorts Challenge which is celebrating International Ladies Day which was yesterday.

This is a 5"x7" tent style card I made.
The papers, and the image are from Graphic 45 Ladies Diary collection.
Added some lace, pearls, a bow, and flowers.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

totally different to your normal card shape and totally gorgeous. How could you bear to use the Graphic 45 papers. I have one pad which came a s a freebie in the magazine but it still only comes out for a stroke and then put straight back away again. I was at craft club last night and must have been sitting on the chair in a funny position because I'm all aches and pains today. Hugs Mrs A.

Hello, Jenny! please forgive me for a long silence! my grandmother (88 years) moved closer to our family, it needs care and attention, so we are busy with it. I was happy to look your last works, they feel the approach of spring, but also much that winter does not want to leave as quickly as all we would like :)) Very elegant vintage card with a lady! I was interested to consider your experiments with a colorful backgrounds. and really liked Z-folded postcards with a rainbow and with frosty sparkling snow :) thanks for all the beauty in your blog! I wish you a warm and sunny spring!

Hi Jenny. You've been on my mind a bit past few days so came to see if you've made any cards or been on and noticed you've not for a few weeks. I do hope you're ok? That your health has not gone downhill. Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you. Hugs xx
