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 dear friends and visitors.
I hope you have all enjoyed the lovely weather
we have had this week so far. Some days it's been 
a bit cloudy here.

Thank you for comments on my last creation.
I do really appreciate every one that you make, as
I know your time is precious to you.

Today I have a Birthday card and box I have just
finished making for my granddaughter.
I am sorry I was not about to comment on your
creations, but I was behind making this card, and
also I have been making icing butterflies to go on
cupcakes for my granddaughter's party.
Will post a photo tomorrow of my cupcakes, just to make Sue J and Sue Ps mouths water. lol.


Now the inside.

Now the box.

This card is an 8x8 size.
The papers used are from Crafters Companion
Cute Companions CD.
I used the SB Grand Scolloped Ovals and Grand Ovals. SB Parisian Accents, SB Wings of Hope
I cut out the 21 on my Cricut Machine.
I added some sequin flowers from my stash, and some other flowers from my stash.
Finally I used some AB Pink Pearls from my stash, and also some Cosmic Shimmer Pearly Glue Dots.

Now to my cupcakes.

So this is what I have been working on the last

2 days.

Thank you again for you visit.
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Good morning Jenny, what a beautiful card and box, gorgeous. Hope you are enjoying the weather and that the prickly heat is not bothering you too much. I have to stay covered up as much as possible but it is lovely to sit in the sunshine and know it is going to be good for the next 5 days according to the forecast. Look after yourself.

Hi my little blogging matey!!! I love your card and box - so glittery and girly! Just right for a 21st birthday card. Love all the pinkly bits!

By the way your cheese scones must have been delicious 'cos the Postie nicked 'em!! Said they just melted in his mouth. I am hoping that the cupcakes arrive 'cos it's me birthday today and one of your specials would go down really well!!!

Big hugs to you (mouth watering and am dribbling)

Beautiful card and box Jenny and so girlie in pink and of course those lovely butterfly embellishments. Yummy cupcakes too. You are one clever, busy lady. One of your cupcakes would go down well with my cup of tea I've just made.

Hope you are enjoying the weather, mustn't grumble that it's too hot as we have waited a long time for this.

Take care, love & hugs Christine H xx

Patricia said...

Good morning Jenny,
Answer to your question... my village is a mile off the main Perth to Forfar road. Our road goes 3 miles to the next village where I have to go for a shop. That is a bigger place where I could also get a bus. Really only local cars, tractors and farm machinery through my sleepy village.
Have a fantastic day
