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 everyone is keeping well.
Can't seem to get my head around crafting lately, but I had to make a few family Birthday cards so that pushed me into the craft room.
I made this card for my Daughter to give my Granddaughter who's is 33 tomorrow.
I know she doesn't look at my blog so it's okay to show now.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The papers are from a Paper Boutique pad.
Sorry the inside photo didn't come out very well.
Lace from my stash wooden bird cage from the works.
The large flower is from WOC.
The small ones are Tim Holtz.
Leaves I made.
Pearl corner cut from a large roll of pearls bought at the Range a couple of years ago in their sale.
Cut out some butterflies from the strip of paper used,  and then decoupaged them.
Happy Birthday die Sue Wilson's.

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

Gorgeous shabby chic card - I'm sure your grand daughter will just love it. You're not on your own, I found it difficult to get back into things after Christmas but I think it's coming together again now.
