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.

It's my Son's 50th Birthday today I wanted to do a memory album, but with the circumstances I ran out of time to make one.
Will try to do one a little later in the year.
So I made an expandable booklet card with some of his fave sports inside.
The front is a bit CAS for me, and my style.

This is 5"x5" in size.
The booklet is made from 3 of the 5" square cards.
I bought the gold rainbow mirri card at the Kent Craft Show recently teamed it up with Linda Chapman's black card.
The sporting pictures inside are Hunkydory Top Deckers.
My Son had a B/Cue recently to celebrate his Birthday as they were going away on his Birthday.
On the table were the confetti with the words Happy Birthday and 50 on so pinched a few to put on the inside of his card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate each visit, and wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Really brilliant card Jenny, the black really sets off the super sporting images and a great use of the white card for the 50's and birthday sentiments. Like the coloured mirri card backings too.

This is fabulous Jenny and I bet your Son loved it. it’s really strange but I find it so much harder to make cards for my closest family members, I don’t know why. There have been many occasions where I’ve gone out and bought a card as I wasn’t sure about my own cards. If I’d bought all my cards, rather than the equipment to make them, I’d be a millionaire! :).
