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 dear blog friends and visitors.
I do hope you have all had a fabulous weekend.
The weather has been glorious today.
I helped a friend in my singing group sell raffle
tickets at her local fete today.

THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments
on my last creation.
I love to read each and everyone, and get your
feed back on my work.

Tonight I have a Golden Wedding Anniversary
card for my sister and her husband. Who will be
celebrating this in the middle of July.
I ran out of my Centura Snow White Pearl A3
card while making this, so I will have to wait for
my replenishment stock to arrive before I can make the box to match.


Now the inside.

This an 8x8 card.
Matted with gold vellum paper I bought a long
time ago, then I embossed the Centura Pearl
with my embossing folder that came with my
E- Bosser.
I embossed and cut 3 Special Touch Mask Doilies.
I die cut my Di-Namics Dizzy Doily 6 times
and cut it in half to go round the edges of the
other doily.
I die cut another Dizzy Doily for the front, and a
lacy circle for the sentiment.
I die cut 24 Marriane Creatables Corner 12 in
white and 12 in gold, and glued the white to 
the gold so only the edges show gold.
The flowers are SB Anemone Die.
The foliage is SB Foliage 2.
Pearls and hearts from my stash.
Sorry this is so long winded an explanation of 
how I built up this card.

Thank you again for your visit.
I do hope you all have a super Monday, and
manage to slot some craft into your day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Great! I appreciate you that you have made this card by your hands in lieu of purchasing. And, I would suggest that you should be continuing of making the personalized wedding invitation cards because I think you have a great knowledge about the cards and craft.
