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.

Hope you all had a good weekend.
Mine was the same as it has been for the last 11 weeks and I suppose it may be the same for most of you too.

Today I have a Card and Pop up Box I made my Grandson's 16th Birthday in March before all the lockdown.
He supports Arsenal Football team so this is what I made him.
He is also a Goal Keeper with his team he plays for, and he also passed his exams to Referee Youngters Matches, which used to earn him a little money.

Card is 8"x8" in size.
Made the background paper with my 3D CD and printed it on photo paper.
Added a big 16 made with tmeplates and cut by hand.
In- corporated a pair of Goalie Gloves and a Football.
The pop up box I used more of the items left over from the card and addded his age and some stars.

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

Two fantastic creations and love both of them. Super papers, love the gloves and the cut out football. the pop-up box is fabulous too. My eldest nGrandson, just gone 15 plays football for school but not OTT about it but my youngest Grandson 11 is obsessed with it and especially Liverpool.
How brilliant that he has passed his exams to be a referee, for youngsters, not a bad profession, hope he keeps it up.
