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 am trying to get back to blogging ,and crafting, but with all my craft items in boxes waiting for my new heaters to be installed it's quite difficult.
I have managed to make a few Birthday cards for my family who have Birthdays this month with Hunkydory items that I could find.
Also a card for my DT on Thursday, but guess what I can't find the camera lead to the computer, after looking in I don't know how many boxes.
I remember putting it away safely, but where............... LOL.

I noticed the Allsorts challenge this week is Milestones with Numbers so as I have a card I made for my Daughter's work colleague back last year, and haven't shown yet I thought I would join in.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock, images, and the papers used are Hunkydory.
I put lots of post cards in the pockets inside for their individual greetings, and signing.
Cut out lots of die cuts of Happy Birthday, and 40th, and glued them together to make them stand out more.
The lovely little Butterflies are made by Wendy L our Team Leader at Moving Along With The Times challenge bog.

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.
