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 another good morning to all my talented followers and
Well it's Monday morning again and the start of another week.
I hope you all had a really fabulous weekend, and the weather
was kind to you.
Did you manage to slot some crafting into your weekend.
I have 3 lots of Baby Book cards and boxes to make for my
sister as 4 of her granddaughters are expecting.
THANK YOU for all your lovely comments.
I so appreciate every one.
So to my post for today, I was asked by a neighbour to make 
this for a friend of hers.

Click on the photo to to get a closer look .

Now the inside.

And lastly the box.

The card and box were made from ivory pearlised card
Matted with mrri card and then some lovely pearlised paper.
I made the lovely triangle shape out of the Spellbinders Parisian
This was not my idea, it was on a tutorial on the Creative 
Harmony blog. Thank you Lindyloo for showing me this
because it is so effective.
To the card I added some flowers, a bow, lacy circles, Parisian
Accents, and Parisian Corners.
I hope you like this creation. I just love the ivory and peach.
Thank you again for taking the time to visit my blog.
Have a wonderful crafty Monday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 
I would like to enter this in the following challenges.
