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 4 Great Granddaughters and 2 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.

It's the turn of the B Team over at the
and the lovely Hazel is your host for this challenge, and she would like to see Swirls and or Curls on your entries.
The challenge runs from 9 am on the Thursday the 19th of Jan to 1pm on Wednesday the 1st of February.
There are some wonderful DT creations made by by my team members so please pop over to the blog and take a look.

So here is what I came up with.

This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.
Not quite sure what to put on a man's 40th Anniversary card so this is what I decided on.

I do hope you can join us for this wonderful challenge.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Ooh this is gorgeous Jenny! Love the fab contrast of the red and white… the swirls are gorgeous and I love the little hearts and the ruby gems! All perfect for this very special Anniversary!
Thanks for your lovely comment. We had a very quiet Christmas, but I had a good rest, and my daughter cooked us some lovely meals, so it was just nice to be all together!
I was just scrolling down and you’ve made so many stunning creations already this year!! Love them all. And I noticed Jamie Fraser… reminds me - I really need to watch Series 2 of Outlander. I can’t get around to it but must make time!!! I loved the first series so much! :-)
Hope you had good Christmas and hope you are keeping well.
All the best for 2017 - I hope it’s a Happy and Healthy year for you.
Love Sue B xxx

Belated Happy Anniversary wishes for this splendid milestone. The red looks very jewel like and I love the cabochons that do look as I imagine a 'real ruby' would look. (Not that I've ever seen one this big!) The white frame against the deep rich red looks great, and I love the filigree corners and the tiny hearts tucked around. I'm certain Mr. loved it just as much! Hugs & I hope ya'll celebrated the occasion with something very special.
