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 friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are all keeping well.
I am going to be away from my blog for a few weeks as my eldest sister is terminally ill, and I want to go to Wales to spend a few weeks with her.
So this will be my last post for a while.
I have been busy sorting all my Christmas buying before I go, and I had a few cards to make for family requests.

This is a Christmas card I made a few weeks ago.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used a Crafters Companion embossing folder, and sanded it down slightly.
Cut out the Merry Christmas, and the corners on my ScanNcut.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Really lovely card Jenny and so very sorry to hear about your Sister, I know how you must be feeling as a few years ago I thought I was going to lose mine as she had Ovarian cancer but she pulled through and overcame it, I only wish your Sister could do the same.
Take care.

Hi Jenny,

So sorry to hear your news, of course you must be with your Sister right now and I am sure she loves the fact you are there. Such a sad time at any time of the year but especially at Christmas. I hope she is not in too much pain, thinking of you and your family right now.
