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

Today is the start of a new challenge over at 
It is the turn of the B Team and the challenge theme is Fantasy chosen by our lovely June.
The challenge runs from 26th April to Wednesday 9th of May, and close at 6PM.
No prizes as we are not sponsored, but you could be one of the top 3 chosen.
On looking at what my teamies had already chosen to do I decided to make a tissue box.

The base of the box is a snippet of white box board I make my boxes for my cards with.
I just sprayed it with a mixture of Tattered Angels mica sprays to get my colour.
The images are a download from C&C, and I printed them on photographic paper.
My Daughter  loved this so I gave it to her.

Please pop along to the challenge blog to see what my lovely team mates created, and try and enter as we love to see your wonderful work.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
