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 very talented friends,
and visitors.
I am so sorry I didn't manage to comment yesterday, as I had visitors all day, and was so
tired after they left.

I do hope everyone is having a lovely Bank 
Holiday weekend.
The weather in my part of Kent is dull, but dry.
So I do hope it's a little bit better wherever you
may live, and you have some nice sunshine.

Today I have a card I made for my Daughter to
give her Granddaughter who is 6 in 8 days time.
I was looking for a image at Pink Gems web
and spotted this one which looks a lot like her.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is a new one I have just bought. 
It's pre-coloured one from Pink Gem Designs.
You also get one to colour in too.
The papers are also a new buy, digi ones
 bought at the Pink Gem Design website, and a bargain.
I cut out lots of SB Parisian Accents for round
the edge of the card, and the corners.
 I used Spun Sugar DI around the oval shape, 
and the sentiment.
I used the long edge die to go round my oval shape to give it nice edge.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful
comments you make.
I so much appreciate everyone that you make.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
