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.

I do hope you are all okay especially those who live north of the country as I know they have had the tail end of storm Ali.

Yesterday I spent the whole day crafting with a friend making things for the MacMillan coffee morning.

I was asked by a lady that works with my Daughter to make her a Birthday card for  her Great Grandson.
She wanted Swings, slides, and roundabouts on it.
So this is what I made her.

 This is a 7"x7" size card.
Now the lady in question didn't tell me she didn't have a husband.
So it came quickly back to change the saying to my instead.
The theme was to be anything to do with playgrounds.

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

Fabulous bright and bold card Jenny, ideal for a little one, they all love bright colours. I'm sure Fletcher will adore this fun and playful card! Looks gorgeous on the inside too!
(Would have been nice if the lady had told you it was to be just from herself in the first place ! :))

You nailed this one, Jenny. I love the primary colors and it is perfect for a boy. Makes me want to go to the playground and swing. I always loved that as a child and would still love to do it. Such happy memories.

Wow this is fantastic for a special birthday card Jenny.
The colour is lavender, I used on a few of the card samples Jenny, trouble is our PC screen all see colours different.

Oh goodness, I love this fabulous one year old birthday card Jenny! What fun to have a round-about and other playground stuff on it. One never knows if there is a husband or not, but you usually one assumes there is a husband. So don't feel bad about that. I love this so much and love the inside and what I could read of the sentiment. Too cute!!! Hugs, Brenda
