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.

The other day I got a lovely surprise in my post I received a set of dies from Practical Publishing saying congratulations for being featured in Simply Cards & Paper Crafting Magazine.
Now they did not say what issue it was shown in, and I have emailed them, and not got a reply.
If any of you perhaps has seen the magazine with it in could they please let me know which issue it was in.
I sent it all in before my dear hubby took ill so I forgot all about it. 
Hope somebody can help.

Right back to today's post.
Here is another Christening card and box.

This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
I used John Lockwood's Oakham Die which is so gorgeous.

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