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.

Sorry I have been missing for so long.
Hubbies extension to his  shed is up and running wonderfully now, and family has gone home.
I have also had some child minding to do with my Grandchildren as they are now on their summer hols. 
Will be doing this on Monday and Tuesday next week also.
Then I have a break as Mum and Dad will be off with them separately for a few weeks.

Today I have a card I made a couple of days ago for the Allsorts Challenge, but haven't had time to post it.

This is a 8"x8" size tent style card.
I have used pearls and gems on this card as I do love using them both or individually as they both can just finish a project  perfectly.
The papers are a Cuddly Buddly download.
The lace insert in the circle is Snippets left over from another card I made.
So I will be joining my playground friends with this.
Used Glamour Dust around the edges, and glittered another piece of Snippets in the circle under the lace edges.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
