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 wonderful blog friends and visitors.
May I welcome my new follower Caroline to my blog.
I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday, and you managed to 
slot some craft into your day.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments.
I am truly honoured by all the wonderful ones you make on 
my meager creations.
Especially as I know that you all,  are soooooo very talented 
people yourselves. 
I had a great day with Ellie yesterday she is such a little
treasure, and so entertaining too.
I know I am biased but she has blond hair and the most amazing
blue eyes, and a wonderful little personality to match.

My card today is one I made for her Birthday, for her grandmother
to give to her.

Click on the photo to get a closer look at the card.

Now the inside.

This card is made out of an 8x8 card size.
Matted with pink card and darker pink paper.
I added a doily to the front of the card and also the inside.
I added a picture of an elephant and decoupaged it.
Some lace flowers in the corners and quite a few embellishments
from my stash.
I hope you like this. I think I went over the top with the 
embellishments, but what do you think.
Thank you again for taking the time to pay me a visit and 
make your comments.
Have a wonderful crafty Thursday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 
I would like to enter this in the following challenges.
Fab and Funky Challenge. No 141 No Patterned Paper

Jenny such an adorable creation I love all the embellies and no you didnt go overboard but made it so perfect. Little Ellie is a lucky girl indeed ! What are those adorable little stars....I have never seen it before!

Jenny L said...

Hi Dr Sonia,
those stars I inherited from my aunty when sadly she passed away. So I am sorry, I can't tell you where they were bought, but on looking at another packet, It says Club Green Celebration and Craft. I hope that helps.

Christine Hussey said...

No you didn't go over the top Jenny this is just adorable and I am sure everyone loved it. I agree with the other comments there is nothing meagre about your cards always beautifully created. Hope you are having a lovely Thursday, love Christine H xx

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi Jenny,
Another pretty creation from you that will most definitely be adored by its recipient, special granddaughter Ellie.
The stars you used on your card are by Club Green and can be purchased at Hobbycraft (well at least the last time I was there they still had them in the wedding craft section) I used to buy alot of stock from Club Green when I had my own Wedding Stationery business and remember these stars from the catalogue.
I hope you are keeping well. Hugs Linda xx

This is lovely Jenny - although I seem to remember seeing the image once or twice when I was in my youth lol!!! Seriously though Ellie is going to love this. You have used some brilliant embellishments and created a great card and you MUST stop putting yourself down, you are very talented!!!

Big hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Awww! I think little Ellie will be delighted with her card. Definitely not OTT as that's how a card for a 1 year old should turn out :) Lovely colours and embellishments. I'm sure Ellie's grandmother was over the moon.

Thanks for playing along with us this week at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.
