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.

Please let me know otherwise they will be there for anyone to see that visits my blog.
Thank You. 
Hi, and a warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.
Also a warm welcome to anyone who just drops by to look at my work.
I will be missing from blog land for a while as my Daughter is turning 50 at the beginning of July, and she is off on her hols before that, and I want to make her a memory album to celebrate it. 
This is taking up a lot of my time, so in the mean time  here is a card I made for my Granddaughter's 19th Birthday as she loves owls like me.
 This is a 8"x8" size card.
The bling owl I bought as a 6"x6" card from a friend that makes them, but as I like to make 8"x8" ones I used it in this design I created.

Thank you so much for your precious time.
Hopefully it won't be too long before I am back again.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
