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 am still absent from my blog a lot.
I am still trying to get my craft room back in ship shape, and still unpacking lots of boxes which is taking me ages as my back will only allow me short periods of work.
I can't believe how much craft items I have still to put away.
My old desk was rather large and had lots of drawer space.
This has had to go to make way for the new heater that was installed, which I must say is keeping me lovely and warm, but my new desk is lot smaller and only has 2 drawers so I have had to buy some plastic drawers to use instead.
Will try, and show you photos or video of the old, and then the new when it's all done.
I have also been labelling everything so I know exactly where everything is.

In the meantime I have a card to enter into the Allsorts Challenge which I made a while ago , and haven't shown yet.
This came as a kit card, and there were 6 different ones which I made all at the same time before I forgot how to make them.

As stated this is from a Hunkydory kit called Windows to the Heart.
I just added a ribbon bow to this.
This design folds flat and fits into C5 Envelope.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate your patience with my hap-hazard blogging at the moment.  
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

WOW, Jenny, that is an amazing card! I've never seen a tall shaped box card like this before and can't stop staring at it! The inside verse is so beautiful!

Take it easy getting resettled in your craft space so you don't injure yourself. I look forward to seeing the before and after photos and I'm glad you are now warm and toasty!! Hugs, Darnell

It's a gorgeous card Jenny, beautiful design and shape, the colours are so delicate and pretty. Don't envy you the task of sorting out all your craft stuff but it will be so worth it when you've finished. I dread to think how long it would take me to sort out mine !
Have a great week.

Brenda said...

That's me too Jenny, the back prevents me from doing to much at one time. Glad you are slowly getting the crafty space fixed back up. I know how hard it is to lose a nice piece of storage that held a lot, but sounds like you are making things work with other pieces. Better to be warm! lol Love this very cool card. The colors are so pretty, the papers as well. Such wonderful images and sentiments as well. Just beautiful! Hugs, Brenda

Windows to the heart is a lovely name for this kit and it made a fantastic card. This design is new to me and I love it. Very fancy and pretty and so nice that it folds into an envelope. I'm glad you are toasty warm now even if it meant giving up your big desk. I hate being cold so I would opt for the heater!
