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 dear blog friends and visitors.
I would like to welcome my new followers Kim and Sophie, thank
you for choosing to follow my blog.

Well I can't believe it's Friday already, another week flown by.
I think it's because I am having so much fun hoping around
blogland, and enjoying looking at your lovely creations.
If I was a rabbit or a hare I think all that hoping would be a
lot easier. LOL.

My card today was going to be a quickie card for a neighbours
Birthday tomorrow, but I liked it so much I made her another
one which I will show you on Saturday.
I don't know about you but when I make one I really like I can't
seem to want to part with it for awhile. 
So here it is.

Click on the photo to get a closer look.

Now the inside.

I made this card with an A5 scolloped white card
Matted it with dark brown card and a double sided 12x12
paper. You can see the other side of the paper on the corners.
The image was a freebie from the internet, and it was coloured 
in with Spectrum Noir Pens.
I added some leaves and sunflowers from my stash.
The twine I won on Joanna Sheens bog hop, and lastly the
hat pin I made.

Well that's all for today folks. I hope you can see why I can't
part with this just yet.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, especially as I
 know your time is very precious to you.
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday.
Hey that's a good name for a Friday, I like that Fabulous Friday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
