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.


It's the first of the month and the first day of a New Year.

Time for a new challenge over at


The theme challenge is

 New Craft Item

 chosen by myself and I am your host for this months challenge.

You have till the 30th of January 2024 to enter.

Here is my design team card using my new shoe die and embossing folder.



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

My Grandson asked me to make this for his girlfriend and she love the colour of purple.

The shoe die is a Chloes one and comes with a stamp also, but I didn't use the stamp.

I cut it out with glitter fun foam which is very easy to cut.

The embossing folder I am not sure who made it as I have thrown away the packaging and it doesn't say on the folder.

Thank you for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

New Years resoulution to try and blog more.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

These shoes are lovely and great for a young gal. I would love to wear those but I would have to have paramedics standing by! The sparkle is awesome. Happiest of New Years to you and your family.
