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 good morning to all my lovely blog friends.
THANK YOU for your lovely comments yesterday, especially
the wonderful ones on my sister's jewellery making skills.
I know she is very pleased with them so thank you on her behalf.
Well it's Saturday again, and hasn't this week gone by very quick.
Or is it just me slowing down because of my age. lol.
My card today is one I made yesterday for the Tea and Cake 
Challenge at The Emergency Crafters.

The card is an 8x8 matted and layered with aubergine card stock,
and some glitter paper I bought from C and C quite a few years ago. The check and the stripe paper were a freebie with a card
making magazine. I put some thick purple ribbon with lace on top
in the centre. The lace has holes in the centre so I threaded another
slightly different colour narrow ribbon through it. The Birthday
Cake digi image is from The Scrapbook Society. The tea cup digi
image is a freebie off the internet. They are both coloured in with 
Promarkers, then I glittered round the images with glitter glue.
Then I put glue and crystal glitter on the flowers and candles.
I made a little flower arrangement with cherry blossoms from
WOC and some from my stash. I added a lacy bow and some flat back flower pearls from my stash also, and oh I nearly forgot the 
design round the oval image is the centre of the Spellbinders Ornate Cross, cut in half and glued to the back to give it a pretty
I hope you like my entry and thank you for visiting me again.
Have a great crafty Bank Holiday weekend everyone,
Lots of crafty love. Jenny Lawrence.
