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, and for those that live in the North of the country I do hope the stroms havn't affected you too much.

Here in the South of the country it had just been a slight wind, and quite mild at the mo.

The last storm we had though took the felting off the large roof of my shed that Tony used to use as his radio shack.

So that had to be replaced.


Last month was my yougest Granddaughter's Birthday, and I was running out of ideas for her card, then suddenly came up with this design.


This is an 8"x8" size card.

I started by matt and layering with some Tonic mirri and plain card stock in pinks.

Then I cut out some water coluring card stock from Crafters Companion, and spritzed it with a Nuvo Pink Mica misting spray as my background.

The image is from a Hunkydory little book.

I cut out the Happy Birthday which is a Sue Wilson Die with a snippet of pearlised card left over from a wedding card, and also spritzed that too.

Then I inled the edges with Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick. 

Flowers made from Daisies, I just took out the centres and added some yellow prills, inked the edges of the flowers with the same ink as before, and then added some leaf ribbon to them.


Thank you for visiting and your precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment made.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi Jenny, A fabulous card for your Granddaughter, the image is perfect and the die-cuts complete this card beautifully.
I hope you continue to avoid the strong winds, we have had terrible winds here in the North West, it kept blowing over my tall shrubs in pots, we were fed up with rushing outside to move them to a more sheltered spot, and the noise the strong winds make truly frightens me, but it is quite mild up here at the moment.
Take care.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
