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 so hope you are all keeping well, and haven't come in contact with this awful virus.

I know I have been missing a lot lately, but I won't bore you with my health troubles.
I am still crafting when I can as I find it helps me.

Today I have a card and box I recently made for my Niece.

This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
My Niece loves Purple and Lilac colours so I used Hunkydory Garden Treasures paper pad for the background and some of their die cut flowers.
In fact all of the card used is Hunky dory card stock.
The pocket dies used are Tonic, the sentiment is Sue Wilson's die.
Number dies bought on Amazon.
I always cut my sentiment dies and number dies in old cereal boxes  first so I don't have to cut them out 4 or 5 times in thinner card.

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

What a beautiful card Jenny, such a wonderful colour choice for Heidi and, as always, your design is incredible. Thank you for the tip about cutting the dies using ceral boxes, what a great idea, I really find layering thinner card so boring, so that is a great idea!! Sorry to hear you are still struggling with your health, I hope you soon improve. Stay safe xx

This card and box is just stunning Jenny! I love the colors, the papers and the die cuts. You always do such a beautiful job my sweet friend. Please stay well and away from this virus. We are shut down here and my son is working from home. They are doing all they can to prevent the spreading of this virus in my state. You have health issues like me, so you don't want to get it!!! Stay safe, stay healthy Jenny. Hugs, Brenda

I love those lacy dies, perfect for a female birthday card. The name Heidi reminds me of happy memories from the movie from so long ago. I just watched it again recently on TV and remembered reading the book when I was a girl. It is a classic and you hardly hear that sweet name anymore. She will love this beautiful card.
