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 talented followers and 
THANK YOU sooooo much for all your wonderful comments
on my work.
I really do appreciate everyone.
I hope everyone had a nice Tuesday and that you managed to
slot a little bit of crafting into your day.
 I had a very busy day, it started with me sleeping late and then 
I was playing catch up all day and evening. 
Hence I am writing this post at 12.20 am.
I must remember to take the match sticks out of my eyes
before I go to sleep. LOL.

Now to my card for today.

Click on the photo to get a closer look.

Now some pins I made the other day.

The size of this card was an A5.
Matted with papers from the Cupcakecrafting CD Floral Delights.
I added a topper, some Spellbinders Dies,  a bow and a button 
from my stash.

Thank you again for your visit and comments.
I hope everyone has a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Morning Jenny, WOW 12.20am and writing your post, you poor thing, I was watching tv and was starting to 'nod' at 10.10pm and had to go to bed, couldn't keep my eyes open.
Your card today is superb, Jenny, I love the backing paper from your CD and also the topper is so beautiful, I'm trying to fathom out what you have got round your image, they look like butterfly wings ??
Your pins are stunning, you will have to do a tutorial for us on how you do these, they are absolutely stunning.
Hope you are feeling more refreshed today.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Patricia,
the pieces around the topper are the left over bits from the Parisian dies glued to the back of the topper.
The pins are quite simple to do and very addictive. I got all my info on where to buy from creativeharomny blog. I used old bits of jewellery and I bought the bead caps. Linda does sell kits for making them too.
I hope that helps.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

This is sooooo pretty Jenny and I love the pastel shade of peach. What a brilliant idea to use the left over bits to frame your topper thank you for sharing. Your pins are lovely and you seem to be well away with these now. I was tentative to start gluing mine but have constructed my first one and now feel more confident to continue. Hope you have a better day today, love Christine H xx

Oooh love the card and the pins Jenny! The peach looks amazing - I must try and find some card of this colour as it is soooo beautiful. Just love those tulips as well - we have planted some in the tubs so I am just waiting for next year now!!! I love your pins - I have a bit of a thing for beads and have loved them since I played with my Nan's jewellery box when I was very very very young (just a few years ago!). She had some gorgeous pieces - many of them I now have! I loved her necklaces especially though - I've always been a magpie!

Brilliant card and pins!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
