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 for your visit, and time.

Well my family has gone back home now, and I do love their visits, but it is always too short.
They no sooner arrive, and their off again, but we had a good weekend as it was my Granddaughter's engagement party on Saturday, and we had a great time celebrating it.

So today is my Son's Birthday, and after trying to think of what to put on his card I suddenly thought of this.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image was a freebie off the internet.
I made the border print out of the image on my 3D Decoupage CD.
I also made him some cupcakes with the same colour van on it, but forgot to photograph them, but here are some I made for my Granddaughter's engagement party.

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

A great card Jenny and I love the VW camper van We had friends with a bright orange one and they loved shooting off for the weekend. My very first car was a VW Beetle which was also air cooled. Oh I did love that car! The cupcakes are very pretty - too pretty to eat. Hope things are well with you. Love and hugs Christine xx

How cute to do this ole VW van, and then replicate the image to create a border. So clever, and a perfect masculine card. Cupcakes look delicious, and while I know you'll be missing your company, departure gives one a sense that life is settling back to normal. Love to see 'em come, hate to see 'em go, but glad to get back to peace & quiet of everyday normalcy. TFS & have a wonderful week. Hugs

Wow...that VW van brings back memories!
This is such a cool card and you have done a marvelous job.

I think your cupcakes look so very professional. The icing design is beautiful and the shimmer of the icing is so lovely.
