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 and talented
 craft loving friends and visitors.
I hope you are all feeling well and anyone who 
is not well I do hope you will soon be feeling better again.

THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments
on my last card.
Reading them all gives me a huge boost of 

Well I received my new E Bosser, and I love it 
soooooo much already, and the good news is
Spellbinders are going to replace my GC handle
free of charge.
Mind you my hubby did say it was quite a weak
handle for all the work it does.
I did notice from the time I received it when in 
use it squeaked a lot, but never thought of 
querying it. Silly me.

Today I have a card made with a Sheri Baldy
Bestie image.
I bought 2 images recently and this was a 
freebie she sent me too.
The card is one I have been asked to make for
a lady who founded my little singing group.
She is not at all well, but we thought we would
put thinking of you on it instead of Get Well,
because sadly we don't think she is going to.


Now the inside.

This is a 8x8 card.
The image is as I said a Sherri Baldy one 
coloured in with Felxmarkers ans Promarkers.
I received a lovely A4 embossing folder with
my E Booser so of course I had to try it out.
I used the bright pink card again although it 
looks red in the photo.
I'm not at all sure about the colour of the flowers
though, they look a bit dull to me as I distressed
them with Faded Jeans Distress ink.

Thank you again for taking the time to visit me.
I hope you all have a wonderful day, and you
manage to slot some craft into it.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following 
Die cuts.

Hello chuckles! Your card is not only thoughtful it is a "cheerer upper". I love the image and the brightness, it really put a smile on me chops! Gorgeous flowers (or fallows as my sister used to say) lol.

Will be home tomorrow so I can do some crafting in between washing and ironing yuk.

Jenny, it's awfull when you have to choose your words when you know the out come doesn't look good, she will love your card.


Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Jenny, So glad you like your Ebosser, I said you would ha ha, and brilliant news that you are getting a new handle for your GC, the handle is the weakest part of that machine, if they put a metal handle on, it would have been much better.
Your card today is beautiful, your friend will really love it, and the sentiment will tell her that you all care.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Such a pretty card beautifully created I'm sure your friend will very much appreciate your thoughts and kindness. So pleased you are enjoying your e-bosser I'm delighted for you and that Spellbinders customer service has come up trumps for you. Hope the sun is shining on you today. Love & hugs Christine H xx

hI Jenny, awesome card using the Besties....have you joined into the Scrapbook Stamp Society one as well, it is to add a charm...I am on the DT there so go have a look and add a small charm to your card. I do hope your friend will be ok....not nice to be ill. Great idea putting that on the card as well which is just stunning.

Dad is good thanks, he is settling into the new life at his home in the hostel, it's not actually the nursing home as he is all good 'up top' and is no trouble to the nurses and they love him...I am the one who can't settle after looking after him for so long I am lost...

keep smiling and have a great weekend and hope you win the challenge.xx
