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.

Good news was had yesterday about my DH no op needed thank goodness.
that's a relief for him, and me.

Today I have a quick post so I can join the Allsorts Challenge, and I think I am just about to make it.

This is a A5 size card.
The image is from the one of the Hunkydory little books.
I stamped the paper background with lots of musical notes and violins with Memento Danube Blue Ink.

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.
