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 have a new follower, but I can't tell who you are.
So if you would like to let me know who you are then I can perhaps join your blog if you have one, otherwise if you haven't welcome, and I do hope you can visit as often as you can find the time.

Today I have a card I made as my Granddaughter got engaged recently.

This is a easel card I made by cutting it out with my Spellbinders Grand Circle Die, and matting it with the Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circle Die.
 The flowers are made from the Spellbinders Anemone Die.
The hearts are a Tonic Die.
Paper used is a Cuddly Buddly download.
Pearls on a string from Cuddly Buddly Crafts.
I made my hat pin from a Hobby House set.

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

Afternoon Jenny, a beautiful easel card. I have most of the dies that you have used on this card, and it's nice to see them used again, as i don't use them that often, but you've inspired me to get them out and see what i can create with them. Hope you are making all the wedding invites for your granddaughter as i'm sure they would be a stunning creation too. Janice x

Hello Jenny,
CONGRATULATIONS to your Granddaughter and her partner.

I agree with Lorraine Jenny this is a beautiful shaped engagement card. I got to play with that flower die when demonstrating it by Spellbinder and I loved it.
A perfect card for a perfect occasion.
