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 dear craft loving friends and
Thank you for your comments on my last
I really love to read everything you have to
Well it's nearly the weekend again, time is
marching on, and it will soon be Christmas. lol.

My card is made with  freebie images  from
the Debbie Moore crafting magazine I bought
last year.


Now the inside.

This is an8x8 size card.
The images are as I stated earlier.
The paper I made by copying the paper that
came with the fairy image onto photographic
paper, so I had 3 of them.
I glued the images onto card and put a gold pen
around the edges.
I distressed the edge of white card with a gold 
pigment ink and a sponge to give it an old gold
look to it.
I freehand cut out the shapes inside to match
the front shape.

Thank you again for your visit, for I know 
everyone has other blogs to visit.
Keep crafting.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
