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 can't believe how fast this month is going as we are in the middle of the month already.

I went to a craft show last Friday at Ditton Kent it was mainly about the Groovi Plates from Barbara Gray, as my friend and her daughter are into  all that.

It was a very nice affair and a very friendly atmosphere too.

I bought some stamps and lots of Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks that I havn't already got.


 Here is a card I made for an 18th Birthday recently.

This is an 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.

The shoe die is a Tonic one which I cut out of silver glitter card from Tonic.

Happy Birthday die is a Sue Wilson one and the 18 is a Tonic die.

The th I cut out of the Birthday part of the die.

Flowers are a Chloe die and the leaves are Heartfelt Creations die.


Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Sorry I have been missing again I have had lots of cards to make and not been feeling A1 either, and also I have a new Great Grandson born on the 9th of June.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi Jenny, Congratulations on your new Great Grandson.
Sorry to hear that you are feeling unwell, hopefully you will be feeling A1 really soon.
A gorgeous 18th card and box as always.
So glad you had a good time at the craft show, I haven't plucked up the courage to go to a show yet with all those people milling around, but I'm getting there slowly haha.
Take care.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Glad you got out to a craft show Jenny, I can imagine how fun it was. Sounds like you got some great things too! Your card for your granddaughter is so fun and cute! I am loving the high heels, perfect for a teen gal. The flowers are so pretty too and I love the glitz of the glittered die cuts and on the flowers. A young girl can never have enough glitz! The box is amazing too, how great to get a matching box with your cards Jenny, a great way to keep these keepsakes protected after one is done displaying the card. Hugs, Brenda
