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.

If you read this please let me know your  blogs if you have one.

Well it's nearly the weekend again, and where oh where has another week gone to.

We have had a bit of a mad week this week, and wanted to get some food shopping done, and it was one of those weeks when everything happened first of all I had my Grand Children Monday and Tuesday.
Then our immersion water heater broke down, but we weren't sure if it was the thermostat or the heater unit.
So it was like the there's a hole in my bucket song.
First the electrician, then the plumber to drain the water tank, and now we have to wait for the electrician tomorrow again, but did manage to shop this lunchtime thank goodness as supplies were getting to a desperate situation, as I hadn't done a big shop for a couple of weeks. 
In between we were asked to perhaps bring our Daughter's fiance home from hospital too.

So here is the Anniversary card I made for my sister, and her husband which was on the 15th of this month.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The lovely coloured card is Hunkydory pearlised card.
I cut a circle aperture out of white card, and then added my lace die cuts glued to the inside of the aperture.
Finally I added some die cut filigree leaves to the outside edges that came with the Tattered Lace Shabby Offset Oval Die that I used for the lace.

Thank you so much for your visit , and precious time.
I really do appreciate every visit , and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
