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.

Sunday 22 February 2015


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

Well it's Sunday again already, and a very frosty 
start to the day here in my part of Kent, but the 
Sun has got his hat on so it looks like it may warm up a bit later.

I mentioned earlier this week I had a few rush 
orders for cards this week.
Well my daughter rang me at 4pm Wednesday
afternoon and asked could I make a Ruby Anniversary card for Mum and Dad, for one of
her colleagues as she couldn't find one in the shops, and she wanted it by Thursday evening to 
take into work on Friday.
Mum to the rescue with this one I made.

This is a 8"x8" size card, and bag to fit.
The bag is made out of 2 pieces of A3 card.
I was running out of red card stock so I die cut
my red die pieces out of my matt and layering 
card, and also used some snippets out of my 
box to finish it off.

Thank you for your visit, and time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

My gosh it would have taken me two days to even think of an idea, let alone making a card and a bag.
Fabulous creation, inside and out gorgeous colours and embellishments.

This card is really looking beautiful and after selection of my location for vows, I will also get invitation cards done like this. So thank you so much for sharing it here. Even John liked them quite a lot. It’s first time we both agreed on something on first instance.
