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, and craft loving friends.

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

I now have a black and blue little toe because I caught it in the supermarket trolley this week, and my did I see stars when I did it.
My Daughter said do you want to go to the hospital, but I think it's only sprained, and feeling slightly better now.
Still hobbling a little though. 

Today I have a card I made for a colleague at my Daughter's works.
So hence the inside with lots of post cards for them all to sign.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers, and the image are all Hunkydory, and also the postcards I made out the Hunkydory little book.
Ran out of the yellow card so I had to do a verse tag with a snippet of cream card.
Butterflies made with a die I won on the Butterfly Challenge just drew around the die and cut out a blank base for the butterfly, and added some stamens for the antenna.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I always appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is lovely Jenny. The image is great and the sunny colours make it really stand out. Sorry I've not been around much of late. I'm being a very bad blogger but we have a lot going on at the moment. It will be back to normal eventually but goodness knows when! Ooh, I feel for you with your toe. I caught the sole of my sandal on the patio and hurt a couple of toes. Luckily it is still sandal weather because when I tried to put shoes on it was very painful. Hope you are both well otherwise. Love and hugs Christine xx

Chris said...

Youch! That sounds painful Jenny, hope it doesn't take too long to heal!
Your card is the design with the little cards for individual messages, what a great idea. I remember the days of trying to squeeze in a message to a colleague when too many others had got to the card first!
Have a lovely weekend...stay away from spiteful trollies ...and rest that toe!

Brenda in IN said...

Why is it toe injuries hurt so bad! They are sensitive little toes for sure and I'm so sorry yours is painful. I hope you're on the mend now. This is so beautiful. I love how you did the layers on the front with the dies. That is so clever and I hope to use that technique on a card. Thanks for sharing that. The inside is so perfect for people to sign the little cards and tags. Very thoughtful.

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Jenny, It's amazing, when I was reading about your accident with your toe, I actually felt the pain for you !! I can understand just how painful it must have been.
I absolutely love this card, I also love how you have engineered the inside pockets and tags for signage etc.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Stunning make Jenny, love the die cuts and your image, inside looks as though it is a miniature Aladdin's cave, something for everyone to choose and sign. Sorry to read about your toe, hopefully the pain will eases soon

Aquarius said...

Such pretty colours on this beautiful card and what a brilliant idea to pop the cards on the clever inside. I hope your toe doesn't cause you too much trouble, good job it wasn't a finger otherwise your crafting would be hampered.

Kathleen said...

Gosh Jenny this is stunning, gorgeous Spring colours and flowers, brilliant inside too.
Hope your toe doesn't make you suffer too much, this would be perfect for Allsorts.
Enjoy whats left of the weekend although weekends last all week for us.

What a super idea on the inside with all the tags Jenny, I will certainly remember that for the next 'work' Birthday or leaving card I need to make. And the outside is just so pretty with the focal image, floral corners and little Butterflies.

Thank you so much for joining in with our 'Flowers all Over' theme at Allsorts, it certainly fits the theme a treat.

A fabulous bright summery card Jenny and your idea of the little cards is brilliant. Never seen one like that before. I hope you toe gets better soon, I know how painful toe injuries can be x

Hi Jenny

Oh dear, poor you and your little toe, still so painful for you!

Your card is so sweet and colourful. I love how you've made the inserts for the postcards, such a great idea to use postcards too

Happy crafting....

cuilliesocks said...

Oh poor you!! I can just imagine how painful that was Jenny, I hope the pain eases soon.
Your card is absolutely gorgeous, and love what you've done with it inside. Wonderful sunny colours and a beautiful topper, Kate x

Brenda said...

Ouch Jenny!!!! I sure hope your toe is only sprained and not broken. I have broken many toes over the years and it's not fun and it takes forever to heal. They really don't do anything for broken toes except maybe tape them. So take care of that toe my friend! Your card is stunning! I love the bright colors and the beautiful image. The image and papers are just beautiful, the black matting really makes it all pop. You do make stunning project Jenny! Hugs, Brenda

Sarah said...

A very pretty card Jenny, love the sunny yellow. I hope your toe is soon better xx

Lisa said...

Oh gosh, I hope your toe is feeling much better soon, Jenny. My toes are having sympathy pains for you - the only bones I've ever broken are both of my big toes. So painful.

I am blown away by this gorgeous card!! The papers are stunning!! I love the image and the details you added!! And how clever to have the cards inside for everyone to sign!! Love this!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

Rita said...

Oh Jenny how lovely is your card. The idea alone is striking. Hope your toe gets better soon. Hugs Rita xxx

MaryH said...

Ouchies for that sore toe! Hope it heals very quickly for you. I bet you did see stars indeed! It's a lovely card (and I feel quite proud that I guessed "Hunky Dory" at my first look at this beauty. Also have gotten pretty good at spotting LOTV as well! Always such destinctive and beautiful images). Love the frames and the golden touches on the layers, and that wonderful floral DP in the background. I'm sure your requestor was so delighted to see what you'd created, and anybody would love to have this one to commemorate a Big 40! Well done, and good luck with the healing! TFS & Hugs

Stunnimg card jenny. Love the little extras inside the card. You can't beat Hunkydory products, quality is amazing and you do an awesome job with their kits. Hope your toe is feeling a little better . Must of been very painful as toes are so sensitive xx

I can just image how painful your foot has been. hope your on the mend now with it. I could lend you a zimmer frame if you need one!!
This is a lovely card and such a great idea to add the cards inside for people to add their names to as it is a group card. hugs Mrs A.
