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.

Sorry I couldn't post this Monday or Tuesday as my DH hasn't been too well, and we have had to visit the hospital twice over the last few days.
A few more tests, and maybe another operation if the outcome is the same as it was a few years ago.

Well onto to my final winner of my Blog Anniversary prize of £15, and Tad-Dah the name drawn out is
 Kate of Love Socks and Cards Blog.
Kate please email me with your preference of where you would like me to buy your voucher.

Now onto a wedding card and box made for my Sister, and Niece to give to my Great Nephew on his wedding.

This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
I purchased the lovely embossed pearlised card to make this.
Now the bridesmaids were wearing Dark Coral dresses so this set me a task as I couldn't find card in that colour.
I tried out a few different inks to get the right colour I wanted, and finally used Worn Lipstick, and Fossilised Amber DOI to get this result, and go with the ribbon used on the box.
Decided to make a shaker design for a change.
Flowers are from WOC and inked with the same inks.
This is the one my Sister gave, and in a few weeks you will see the one my Niece gave them.

Thank you for your visit, and precious time,
It's always very much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Oh Jenny, I sure hope that DH is ok! I will keep him in my prayers my friend. Your wedding card is just stunning! I love that you made it a shaker card, I've never seen one so elegant like this one. I love it and love the color you got using the Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick, just beautiful and so it that bow on the box. You are so good at these and I can't wait to see the next one. Hugs, Brenda
