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 welcome to all my craft loving friends
and visitors.
Well the weekend is here again, I do hope you
all have a fab weekend.
Those of you out there not feeling too well, I do 
sincerely hope you will soon be feeling better.

Thank you for all your comments on my last
You know I very much appreciate your visits.

I have a little decorated shopping bag for you
today. I buy these plain shopping bags  at my 
local library and decorate them.
I do hope you like it.


I glued some lovely silk pansies to the bag,
and added some stickles , and stones to the
center of the flowers.

Thank you again for your visit.
I do hope you find some time in your busy,
weekend to craft.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Thanks for the reply Jenny. You were looking out for me so no need to apologise chuck. Im new to this challenge stuff so it was quite possible that I could have goofed. . . . . Its a miracle I hadn't lol !!!
Thanks again. Hope you get that printer sorted. You must do some serious printing to have one of those babies.

Brilliant idea Jenny. I have so many bits and pieces that are too big for cards that would look perfect on such a project. By the way I've made two origami boxes so far (thanks for the inspiration) this space!! xx
