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.

H i and good morning to my talented craft loving followers and visitors.
May I say a big welcome to my new followers, and thank you
for choosing to follow my bog.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Elaine from Wheelers
Crafts blog for mentioning me on her blog, and of course a big thank you to  all my wonderful talented followers for all your
lovely comments on my work.
I am truly amazed how generous and helpful this crafting community is. It is sooooo wonderful to be a part of it.

My card today is the one I made instead of yesterdays.
I had a little accident with it, so I had to do a little quick first
aid  in the way of extra leaves.
What happened was I decided to do a trail form the butterfly,
with gold pva glue well I don't know if it was the paper or my
glue but they all went horrible as you can see from the antenna,
which I couldn't cover up. 
On my card you will see some lovely crochet pieces that the
lovely Linda Wesscott sent me. Thank you so much Linda.

Now the inside.

This card was made with a 6x6 card in cream.
Matted with dark brown card and some lovely papers I inherited 
from my aunts stash.
I added a fish tail tag for the sentiment and those lovely crochet
pieces, and of course the leaves.
The corners were from the Parisian set.
I hope you like it.
Thank you again for taking the time out of your day to visit me
and leave such lovely comments.
I really do appreciate everyone that is made.
I hope you all have a rally fantastic day, and that you manage
to slot some craft into your day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny, love the crochet, it adds dimension to the card along with the leaves, butterfly etc. I hate it when the glue goes wrong and can ruin a wonderful creation, but as this is only a small area it is not really noticed until you point it out.

Have a feb day.

Another lovely autumn card Jenny, great colours and the crochet pieces are beautiful. Know what you mean about using the PVA glue, works beautifully on a scrap piece of paper lol! Would not have noticed if you hadn't said. Have a lovely weekend, love Christine H xx
