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 you wonderful craft loving and talented
Well I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday.
THANK YOU for all your fabulous comments on my work.

I looked after my little great granddaughter Ellie yesterday.
She is such a little darling, so entertaining.
She did make  me laugh, she cried when her mother and siter
left, and then about half an hour later she stood by the front
door waving.

My card today is a little bit different in shape, you see my very
kind hubby bought me the new dies I have been wanting for a
They are the grand decorative circles and the grand circles.
So I just had to have a play as you do with new dies.
Here is the result. I hope you like it.

Now the inside.

This card is made with A4 card cut with dies I mentioned.
The image is a Pink Gems one coloured in with Promarkers.
The flowers are from Wold Orchid Crafts and Hobbycraft.
The butterfly is Memory Box Moonlight Butterfly.

I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
