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 very talented
craft loving friends, and visitors.
Well here we are again on Sunday, and the days are marching on to Christmas.
I don't know about you but I am getting very little 
time to craft and comment at the mo.
Just so much to do especially with 12 grandchildren, and 2 little great grandchildren to buy for, and also trying to get fitter, after my 
slipped disk episode.

This morning I spent at my Son's house helping
my 10 year old grandson make a lemon drizzle
cake, while his parents, and his sister went to my
Son's work pantomime.
Dylan thinks he is to cool to go to pantomimes
I must say he made an excellent job of the lemon
drizzle cake, and he enjoys cooking.
He is also making a Christmas Cake at school.

So on to my Baby Shower card, got a phone call
on Thursday to ask if I could make one for 
Sunday as my granddaughter was going to a Baby Shower.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made all the items used on this card on the 
Brother ScanNCut.
I downloaded the trellis design from John Bloodworth the Gentlman Crafter's blog so 
thank  you very much for the files John.
The inside was a mask I bought ages ago, and I
scanned it in and it cut it out beautifully, and so
much time saved there.

Thank you for your visit, time, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends, and visitors.

Well would you believe it's Friday again, and 
time to share an Oldie for Friday with Erika  HERE  
Would love you to join in with this fab idea, there
are no prizes, but it's all worth it, just to see some
of your older creations.
Well here is mine this is an idea I got from
Patricia of as she made
some beauties of these.

This is made out of 2 A4 pieces of card, or 1 A3.
It would look very nice if you had double sided 
card also.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make. 
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi and welcome to my blog all my very talented
friends, and visitors.
I can't believe it's Wednesday already, time seems to be speeding on to Christmas.

Well my granddaughter took me to see Paddington
at the cinema yesterday, and I really enjoyed it.
I do like a film that makes you feel happy watching it.

Today I have a Birthday card for my eldest sister, 
my  2 sisters are just 4 days apart from each others
Birthdays, one is on the 4th and my eldest sister is
on the 8th.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The flowers I used are from and old jumper, 
and don't they look pretty.
I used one of my stick pins I made too, and 
finished it of with some Cosmic Shimmer Gold
PVA glue dots.

Thank you for your visit, time, and the wonderful
comments you make.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends,
and visitors.

Thank you for your visit, time, and wonderful comments you make on my work.
I very much appreciate all of them.

Wow can you believe my blog has gone back to 
normal all on it's own.
I am so pleased it has, as I was too scared to 
touch anything in case of doing more damage.
Don't know if it was anything to do with blogger.
Well enough of my blog probs, here is a card
I made for my Sister's Birthday using the High,
and Low technique Sue Wilson has demoed on
her blog.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I followed Sue's advice and used double sided
tape around the edges of my card, and then put
Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer polished
silk glitter turquoise on it.
Then I followed Sue's technique for the high and
low of the glitters on her Austrian Die.
The daisies are Tattered lace, and the leaves are
Sue Wilson's Finishing Touches Faux Quilled 
I used up some snippets to cut out some of the
smaller die parts, so I'm off to join in the girls in
the playground.

Thank you for your visit, and a big thank you
also to those of you that offered me help.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
