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 forgot to mention yesterday that I have family staying for the weekend so will find it hard to comment till Sunday so hopefully I can catch up then.

Here is a card and box I made for one of my Daughter's colleagues that was leaving to live up north. 
She loves Handbags , and the colour Pink so this is what I made.

 The Handbag opens up like this.

 Lots of little cards inside for all to write their best wishes for the future.

This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
The Handbag image and design are from CraftsUprint, I just added some ribbon to the handle.
A Flower spray to the front of the bag.
I made the black antenna on the butterflies by adding black micro beads to a stamen.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I always love to read your wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
