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.

How are you coping with the heat. 
  I am not very good withthe hot weather it drains me of energy.
Luckily it's a lot cooler today at last.
So I thought I would post a card I made recently for one of my Daughter's bosses.


The card is an 8"x8" size, and a box I made to fit it.
I also made a Tissue box for her and was asked to put Daffodils on both as the lady in question was born in Wales like myself.
She was very pleased with everything.
The paper used is  Hunkydory Garden Treasures luckily I bought 2 of that collection.
The die used around the aperture is a Tattered Lace one, the Happy Birthday die is a Paper Boutique one.
The Daffs, Butterflies and Foilage are Cranation Crafts dies.
Numbers dies are cheap from Amazon.
The little cards inside were made with a small daffs die that I was lent, I believe it was a Joanna Sheen die that came with one her magazines a few years ago, and I coloured them with promarkers.
Then I punched out 2" circles with snippets of paper left over from the tissue box, and cut them in half to make a bowl for the Daffs to sit in.
Sorry I forgot to photograph that.

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

Hi Jenny, This card is so pretty, you always make such lovely cards for everyone to sign, the recipient will be 'over the moon'.
I love the sunshine, but this has been awful, I will be glad when it turns cooler and the thunderstorms abate.
Take care, stay safe, stay well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Wow Jenny, this is a stunning set!! I love the papers you used and who doesn't love daffodils?! I love how you made the flowers 3D too. It is just stunning! I sure hope your temps drop soon, yes the heat sucks the life right out of you. Don't over do anything in the heat, just take it easy. I don't do good in the heat either, not now any ways.
