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 evening to all you talented craft loving 
people and visitors.
May I say a BIG WELCOME to my new followers, and thank you for choosing my blog
to follow.  
I do hope you have all had a really good day, and that you managed to slot some crafting into it.

THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments
on my very quick and hurried card, and my sister's jewellery.
I very much appreciate your opinions on mine and
my sister's work.

Tonight I have my hubbies Birthday Card to show you as promised.
Now the image isn't at all like my hubby, but as
he has been busy with his planting seeds for runner beans lately I thought this image appropriate. Actually the gardening apron is very 
like my one, as hubby doesn't wear an apron to 
do his gardening.


Now the inside.

 This is a 8x8 card size.
The digi image is a Mo Manning one coloured in
with Flexmarkers and Promarkers.
The papers are Forever Friends Good Life Pack.
I have used green chalk round the images and verse.
I used a few little gardening elements from my stash.
Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges. 
Father's Day or Mans Card.

Hi Jenny - I love this image! Shame you can't get Tony to wear an apron like this one - lol. I know he will be chuffed with his card, who wouldn't be!!! I'm so messy (as if you didn't know) that I always have to wear my green pinny when I'm gardening.

Great card!!!

Hugs to you and a kiss from Pidgy

Hi Jenny at last I can comment on your cards. I had to miss a few whilst on hols as my Tablet would'nt let me on to the comment page. Strange!!

Anyway, I love this, what a great image and design with all your little embellishments. The insides of your cards are always wonderful, as great as the outsides, Kate x
