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.

Hubby is still quite weak, but has lots more colour in his cheeks now.
He is on his last week of injections, and hopefully will improve from then on.
We may have to try,  and get some physio for his right arm and leg as they are still very weak, and he has to think carefully when using them as it doesn't seem to come naturally to him any more.
This week he has had a heart monitor on for a week too so they can look at what's going on there.
Things are very hectic with Hospital appointments, and as he always helped me so much around the house I am having to do it all which is quite exhausting.
As I don't sleep too well with my RLS I quite often can be crafting at night.
Here is a quick card I made.

This is a 4"x4" size card.
The paper with the forest scene is Hunkydory, and the fox is a freebie stamp which I stamped with Izink Ink, and water coloured with the the Izink Inks, and then added some black sharpie for the eyes, snout, and the edge of the paws.
I also added some white gel pen to his tail, ears, and his neck.
Then I created a shadow under his body with Memento London Fog Ink.
Forgot to say I fussy cut him out and adhered him to the scene.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Beautiful snowy background you created for the precious fox. Your shadow looks so good. I always have trouble doing that. You have your hands full right now and it sounds like hubby is feeling a bit better. I'm glad you had a little time to make a card. It is important to do something you enjoy.

Beautiful wintery scene, Jenny, fabulous fox! (Not so keen on the one that's taken to sleeping at the bottom of the garden...behind the fence so the dog can't reach him!!! Swear he's thumbing his nose at's driving her bonkers!)
Hope your husband's health and strength soon improve Jenny and hope you get some sleep too...

I hope Hubby continues to progress Jenny and that you find time for yourself. This is such a lovely card and I genuinely thought that wonderful fox was part of the scene. You have done an amazing job of inking him...or her xx

Hi Jenny, I do hope your Hubby keeps improving and receives the support he needs. You too must keep healthy, and get some rest.
Your card is just lovely, super fox image and background, take care, Kate x

Hi Jenny, I am keeping you and Tony in my prayers, let's hope he keeps getting stronger each day. You will need to keep healthy so you can keep up all the care you are giving.
A lovely card, I don't know how you are finding the time to craft, but I suppose it is a form of 'release' of tension too. Keep well, both of you.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Kathleen said...

Beautiful card Jenny, such a lovely scene. I've just been catching up on your lovely makes on your blog and also the news about your husband, I'm so sorry to read about everything that has been happening these past weeks and months. I'm also sorry that I haven't been around blogging or visiting for much of the summer - I had a bit of a health scare myself and just felt the need to mostly withdraw and deal with it in my own way. As it happens it was just a really nasty scare - I'm absolutely fine (except now I have the horrible cold bug for the last 2 weeks - but I can live with that!) I'm back to blogging and visiting so i hope to see you again soon! hugs Judith xx
