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.

Good morning to all of my talented followers and visitors.
If you are a visitor please leave a comment on my work so I 
know you have visited me. 
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments. 
I know I keep saying this but it means such a lot to me to have
your comments on my work.

I hope the weather hasn't caused any of you too much trouble
yesterday, lets hope it improves today fingers crossed.

I spent most of the day yesterday baking I've made my 
Christmas cake at long last, and some cakes for hubby.
He said to me you don't bake me any cakes and then today 
you have made 4.
So I replied well my baking is like a bus first there is no bus,
and then three all come along at the same time. lol.
In any rate that's enough of my waffling, and here is my 
card today.
This card is a raffle prize I put in the Mcmillan Nurses coffee
morning a while back. The lady in question didn't need it till
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.
 Now the inside.

This is an 8x8 card.
Matted with a dark apricot colour card and the some beige
pearl card.
The paper I cut the Grand Decorative Circle and the corners
with is from the Desert Blooms Pad of papers.
I added a sentiment, some flowers, and an embroidered lace
from my stash.
Thank you again for you visit.
I hope you all have wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
