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 haven't been around for a few days,
but I am getting everything ready at home so I 
can visit my sister in Wales as she has her op
next week.
So I will be away in Wales for either a week or 
ten days, hoping to give her some positive 
thoughts, and support.

This is a card I made for my Son's Birthday
which was yesterday.
Now it's really funny as he had 2 bought cards
both with the same main image.
He loves to ride his bicycle, as does my youngest
Son who I made a similar card for in February.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is a Hunkydory one from one of 
their decoupage pads.
I made the backing paper with an images, and 
my Decoupage 2 CD.
I used the Sue Wilson Die for the frame, and 
used my rub-ons over the debossed part again.

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

So I see he is wearing the "Maillot Jaune" Jenny - must be the Tour de France ... lol! A great card for him. I haven't done much cycling this year so far. Hopefully I will be able to get cracking soon because I really love cycling. I do hope things go well with your sister. Hugs Christine xx

Hi Jenny
Just breaking myself in gently again as hopefully, I've turned a corner.
Great card for a keen cyclist. You should enter this at Moving Along With the Times as I've set a texture challenge.
Best wishes.

Brilliant card and great colours, great image and I wonder if the shop bought card uses Hunky Dory also.
Don't know if your Hubby is going with you or not and don't tell me but either way you should mention on your next post that Hubby will be holding the fort as now if you mention on any social media that you are going away and you get burgled then you house insurance is void. They say you are inviting burglars
