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.
Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I really do appreciate that you take time out of your busy day to visit me, and make such great comments on my work.

Today I have a card I made for a neighbour who live in the sheltered flats close to me.
She is 100 years of age on the 2nd of December 2015.
So this is what I came up with for everyone that lives there to sign for her.

This is a 8"x8" size card and Box I made to fit it.
I made the roses from Pamellia's Tutorial  HERE.
I used the Sue Wilson Weaving Die Classic for the center of the Spellbinders Grand Circle Die.
I added some pearls on a string from Cuddly Buddly Crafts to the edges of the circle.
Inside I made pockets with stamped edged paper for everybody to sign.
I cut out the bow edging around the box on my ScanNcut.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
