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.

Hi and good afternoon dear blog friends and
May I say a big welcome to my newest follower,
and thank you sooooo much for choosing to 
follow my blog.
THANK You for all your comments on my last
I really do appreciate every one you make.

Our singing at the nursing home was cancelled
this afternoon, due to the person who booked us
going on holiday and not telling anyone else we
were booked so they had already arranged an 
outing for their residents.
This suited me fine as I have had a very busy
week, and the heat makes me extremely tired.
I don't sleep well at the best of times and this
heat makes it worse. 
Still I mustn't grumble as I know most of you
are enjoying this beautiful weather.

Today I have a card I made for Ellie my 
littlest great granddaughter, it's her Birthday
on Monday and she will be 2 years old.
So when I saw this Besties image I knew I 
had to have it for her.
I hope you like it too.


Now the inside.

This is and 8x8 size card.
I have used the Dessert Bloom Papers on this.
So sad I'm nearly out of this paper pad, because
I have really loved the papers that were in it.
The image is a Sherri Baldy Besties Image,
coloured in with Promarkers.
I added some pink daisies on a roll that were
in my stash from what I had of my mothers.
Some AB pearls on top.
The sentiment was computer generated.
I coloured my sentiment and the inside verse
with chalk as I haven't got and orange distress

Thank you again for your visit.
Will be round your blogs shortly to comment.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following

Hello Jenny
Thank you so much for your lovely comment and also for becoming follower number 14. I was beginning to sweat that I would be stuck on the dreaded 13.
Spooky but I had been on your blog a few days ago as I was taken with your Mollie card(my late MiL was a Mollie spelt this way) Battery then went kaput and I couldn't remember whose blog I was on!
Anyhoo, your cards are lovely and this one is gorgeous for the little one.
Off to sort tomorrows posting so hope you can pop along again.

So sorry your singing was cancelled, the person who organized and then went on hols without telling anyone, will never live that down ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
