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 I do very much appreciate your wonderful comments.

Today I have a card I made for my Granddaughter's 17th Birthday.
Now those of you that have known me for a while will remember her brother turned 17 3 years ago and was bought a car for his Birthday lucky young man.
So now it's his sister's turn to turn 17,and she got bought a cream mini.
Good job they only have 2 children otherwise it would cost them the earth.
So here is her card I made her.

This card is a 8"x8" size.
The pink mini image is one I bought from C&C when they first started broadcasting so it's very old.
I made the backing paper out of my 3D Decoupage CD again.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, What lucky, lucky Grandchildren, and your Granddaughter's card is lovely.
I have missed your last 2 posts, been so busy, so just looked back, as usual your cards are fabulous, especially the Allsorts one, your B-i-L will love it if he like the sweets, so very unusual too.
Enjoy your company visiting. I am waiting for Amazon to deliver my new hairdryer, mine blew up and Argos don't have mine anymore so ordered online. Typical it seems to take ages when you are waiting in, Graham has had to go do the food shopping haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
