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 craft loving firends,
and any visitors who may just find my blog.
Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful comments that you make.
I am so pleased you take the time to make all
your wonderful comments.

Well July is a busy month for me as I have lots 
of family Birthdays, and Anniversaries, and also
a very good blog friends Birthday too.
I am also expecting a new Great Grandchild,
and she is due on my other Great Granddaughter's
Birthday, and also my Grandson's Birthday.

So I decided to visit the Pink Gem Website again,
as the Granddaughter who has the Birthday is
also the one about to have the Baby.
So in that vein I thought this card would remind
her of the days when she could wear these shoes.

This is a 6"x6" size easel card.
The silver card is Dovecraft from the 
suppermarket, and bargain at £1-99 for 10
cards and envelopes.
The card design is a digi download for the 
Pink Gem Website, and a bargain also at
The backing gingham paper is also a digi
download from the Pin Gem Website too.
Now I made mistake, and should have put the
black backing card on the base of the easel too.
Did my usual tweaks on the butterflies.
The flowers and leaves are from a Cheery
Lynn Designs C184, and cut out of the 
gingham,and spotty paper.

Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

What a wonderful card, Jenny! I love the design. I don't think you made a mistake at all. The black backing card makes the main image really 'pop' - your card looks great just as it is. :-) xx

Jenny, at this rate you will be making a card every week. Your card is very girlie and yes she won't be wearing shoes like these for a while. Are you going to make a " Nappy Cake" for this new little one? Hazel x

Congratulations on your increasing family! How exciting to have this big event happening on some of your other grands' birthdays. Awesome present, I'd say. Lovely card with the pair of lavender heels. Liked the way you have the 2nd shoe shadowing in the background too. Great color choice for a young lady and love the shape of the card. Great embellies and just delightful. What a happy treat for someone in the last throes of being so uncomfortable prior to imminent delivery. You're a terrific Grandma! TFS & Hugs
