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 from a very sunny part of Kent.
I do hope the sun is shinning in your part of the world where ever you may reside.

Was in a quandary as what design to create for my Grandson who turns 18 on Tuesday, and then thought of this idea.
I can safely show it as I know he doesn't know about my blog.

This is a A5 size card.
Kept it rather flat for posting.
The lovely card I used was a freebie gift from the C&C Club.
It's Kanban card and was A5 in size.

I am entering this into the Allsorts Challenge who are celebrating their 400th Challenge so a big congratulations to them on such a milestone.

Almost forgot that I cut out the Grandson letters out of snippets of black and kraft card so I can join my playmates in the snippets playground yay.

Thank you so much to all my very talented friends who regularly make such great comments on my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny
Males can be pesky to make for, especially teenage ones but this is just perfect.
Hope Jason has a day as special as his card.

Brilliant card Jenny! I love that background paper, the silver metallic text makes a wonderful backdrop for you big gold embossed 18. The gold and silver really work well together, so perfect for a masculine creation!

Hi Jenny, I love this card. I'm in a quandary too - it's my youngest grandson's 18th in a couple of weeks and I really didn't have a clue about the card I'd make. Your card has given me some inspiration - phew! The papers you've used are fab and the greeting inside is perfect. Thanks for sharing. Elizabeth xx
