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.

This is a bit longer post as there is quite a few photos.

My sister asked me to make this for her son and his wife.

This is a 8"x8" size book card, and box I made to fit it.
I made some photo matts, and put them in the pockets for my nephew and his wife to put some photos in to keep of the celebrations.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really love reading your super comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is a truly beautiful card and how thoughtful to pop in some mounts for their photographs of the occasion. This is something for them to treasure and keep safe in the lovely matching box.

Oh how lovely this is. The lace heart and champagne glasses are a perfect way to celebrate an anniversary. I love the inside pockets for photos or for someone to leave a message. Gorgeous, Jenny.
