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.

Sunday 4 November 2012


Hi and good morning everybody.
Well it's Sunday again and where has this week gone to.
Mind you after the bug thing I'm not sorry to see this week end.
 You know I said I could do with loosing some weight well I 
lost 9Ib with that darn thing. The only upside to the week.
I hope today finds all of you feeling A1 and not suffering with
any nasty germs that are about.

THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments.
Everyone means a great deal to me.

Well it's time for the Twinchie Challenge again.
This time they want Hot Colours.
So this is my version.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

This was made with some holographic papers.
I cut the papers into triangles and matted them on the card.
Then I die cut 2 small squares from the Spellbinders Square
Swatches and mounted one on top of the other.
I die cut the butterfly from the Spellbinders Fanciful Flights.
I added some stones and there you have it.
I hope you like my effort.

Thank you again for taking the time to visit especially on a 
busy Sunday.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into The Twinchies Challenge No 9

This really is a hot Twinchie Jenny - absolutely love it! Such gorgeous bright colours. I haven't given it a thought yet - but you know what I'm like - lol!!! I have probably got some stuff that I have hidden because of it's brightness - now I can't remember where I've put it!

Must say one last comment on the Twinchie - I think that butterfly is glorious with all those shiny rhinestones on it.

Hugs Sue Pxxx

Rita said...

Afternoon Jenny, I love your twinchie, really hot and jewel colours and the butterfly is gorgeous.
Glad there was at least something good that came out of your illness, although there are much nicer ways to lose the weight aren't there, so glad you are feeling much better now. I have spent every day since last Thursday at our local hospital with my daughter, we had to rush her in with kidney infections and then she also developed a fever, she is being pumped intravenously with painkillers and anti-biotics, poor love. Then tomorrow I am going into eye hospital to have my first eye lasered, not looking forward to that at all ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had
problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

May I simply say what a comfort to find an individual who actually
knows what they're talking about on the web. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people should look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you're
not more popular given that you certainly have the gift.
