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.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
They are all very much appreciated.

Well today I have the Baby card I made for my Granddaughter to give to her best friend on the birth of her first baby.

I made a little pocket at the back of the card to house a small card for them to put their greetings on which you can just see in 2nd picture as you have nowhere on an easel card to write on.
This new Tonic Veranda Twisting Layering Die lends itself perfectly to an easel card.
I love how this turned out it reminds me of Wedgewood China, and that takes me back to remembering my Grandmother who always had Wedgewood ornaments, and a tea service.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is truly beautiful Jenny! Your granddaughter's friend must have been so thrilled with it! It's funny but yesterday John went out to wander around some antique shops near Stratford upon Avon and saw quite a bit of Wedgewood Blue Jasper. Hope things are well with you and Tony. Hugs Christine xx

I agree Jenny I was looking at your card thinking wedgewood. A beautiful baby card to treasure and as always you finish off beautifully inside and with the matching bag. Great selection of dies too.

Hugs Erika. x

Oh, some more lovely dies - so lovely on this beautiful card. It does indeed bring to mind that wonderful Wedgewood pattern, so classy. Just can't top a blue & white design. Love the tiny blue flowers tucked around, and that you have all the remembrances of this special birth on the inside. A thoughtful & beautiful way to present this card too, which I'm sure will be a treasured & appreciated memento. TFS & Hugs
