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 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.

Sorry I was not about yesterday, but I was dog sitting for my Son as they were away camping for one night.
Looking after my Grandchildren tomorrow as well as their parents are back to work tomorrow after their hols this is my elder Son's family.

Really proud of my Granddaughter Jess Bonfield as she got so many A/s in her A Levels, and is going to Southampton  University, and was offered a place in Oxford too, but prefers Southampton.
Considering she had a very bad throat infetction while taking these exams she did so well I think.
Here she is with my Son on the right, her Mum on the left, and my Grandson next to her.
This is my youngest Son, and his family.

More of the cards I made to sell at my Daughter's fete this one is a Baby Boy one.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The papers, and the image are from the Joanna Sheen Baby Love CD.
Computer generated sentiment, and verse.
Baby die cut items cheap Chinese dies.
Doily die also a cheap Chinese die cut.
 Oval stitched dies Gummiapan dies.

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

Stunning card Jenny. Congratulations to your Grand-Daughter in her exam results too. My Grandson starts Universityof Edinburgh in September too. They might have met up at Oxford as Hamish was down 3 times for interviews, but decided against it as the French history was not the one he wanted, his Dad graduated from Oxford after completing his PHD. Like you we are so proud of all his achievements. You have had a busy time of it during the summer. Love and Hugs Rita xxxx

Another fantastic card Jenny, sweet image and some gorgeous baby elements.
Good looking family, how proud you must be.
Southampton Uni, was a nightmare for me, my youngest Daughter, Lynda was due to go to Hull Uni, but her Maths grade let her down, the Math s teacher was livid and demanded a re-mark but in the mean time Hull rejected her but Southampton took her on, she was doing Law and Business, after numerous trips to Southampton, getting accommodation and taking everything down, when we left her she cried, she never cries, not even at ET, so I cried all the way home. That was a Sunday.
On the Tuesday evening she rang me to say that she had got the result of the re-mark through and it was good, would I ring Hull to see if they would now take her, which I did on the Wednesday morning and they said they would if she could be there Thursday, I worked until 4 p.m., went home, left Chris a note to say I had gone to fetch Lynda home, filled up with petrol and drove down, got there around 9 p.m. loaded the car, grabbed a bag of chips from a chippy drove home and arrived about 3 a.m. Got up at 7.30 and had her at Hull for 11 a.m.
Looked around at some accommodation which was all grotty but the best had already gone but she did managed to get a cancellation in the Halls of Residence.
After Uni she got a job with the Leeds Crown Prosecution Service and then with Barclays Fraud Dept, had Ethan and has never worked since. Never got any board money either, but that was our choice.

I think your lovely Grand-Daughter will do well at Southampton, it is a very nice Uni and to be quite honest the day we went at first was Fresher's Day and I really wished I was going.

Sorry for the ramble.
