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.

My brother is the avid cricketer in our family. He's a fast bowler and has the knee and shoulder problems to prove it. But he won't give up. Anyway,
I'm doing a bit of waffling too. I love the image on your card. And the colour really reminds me of watching cricket in the summer. Lovely green lawns. Love and hugs from Christine xx

That's definitely a boundary!! ~What a brilliant card Jenny!! Yes I know all the lingo and I even understand it these days. The men in my life, eat,sleep and dream cricket and my youngest Son has plunged into deep depression as the Dorset League games are now finished!! xx

Hi Jenny, love your cricket card, and I am sure your uncle will love it. How lucky you are to still have uncles, my last one died just over 3 years ago. I love how you do matching insides as well Jenny, I think I will have to take a leaf out of your book. It is drizzly and a lot cooler here today. Take care.

This is a brilliant card matey! I just think it is amazing, really cheerful and just right for an uncle!

It is definitely cooler here and on Tuesday we had the biggest downpour ever - I looked out of the window and there was a pidgy sitting on the roof having a shower!!! He was lifting his wings up one at a time and really enjoying it! Perhaps my pidgy would look better in the garden eh???

Anyway loads of big hugs to you matey Sue Pxxx
