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 my blog all my craft loving
friends and visitors.

Thank you soooooo much for your visit and
wonderful comments.

Today I am joining in with a challenge I have never entered before.
The challenge is to use up snippets of left over
paper or card from other cards you have made.
So here is my attempt, I made this card mainly
with bits left over from a previous cards, the only 
thing that I haven't used before is the gold doily. 


The card is a 6x6 size.
I made the card from bits of card left over 
from my Holly Fairy Card.
Even the card it's self was the left over bit.
I had to join the paper as it wasn't big enough
so I put some ribbon down the join.
I think this idea of using up your bits from left
over projects is fab.

Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
