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.

I do hope you all are keeping well, and for those of you feeling poorly or under the weather I am send lots of get well wishes your way.

Today I have a Retirement card and Box I made for my daughter's work colleague. 

The card is 8"x8" in size and the box I made to fit it.
Forgot to mention that I made this card blank by cutting down 2 A4 size cards.
The lady in question has a Black Lab dog so the request was for that on the design. 
The image is
 Pollyanna Pickering's art work, and papers from her CD which was lent to me from a friend.
I decided to go with a hinged design to accommodate the little 4" cards to sign by all the staff.

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

The recipient of that card is going to treasure it always Jenny, it is gorgeous. I love Pollyanna Pickering images. I bought Martin a framed print of a Pollyanne springer spaniel for Christmas the first year we were together in 1985, it is still langing on the wall in the hall!! I laughed at your pheasant story although I would never have coped...I am a little bit scared of birds!! xx
