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 craft loving friends, and visitors.

Been looking after my Granddaughter today as she doesn't go back to school till tomorrow.
She is my youngest Granddaughter.
We also had lunch with my eldest Granddaughter today, and her mother my Daughter.
 Before we went to lunch my youngest Granddaughter wanted to make cards.

Fingers crossed Win 10 seems to be behaving today thankfully.

Last week I was asked to make a card for my Daughter's boss who is Welsh, and in Wales we call our Mum Mam.
So here is the card and box I made her.

This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit.
Now the order was for Lavender Colours and I didn't have any Lavender card so I sprayed my card with Tattered Angels Mica spray to get the colour I was after.
As the lady in  question  loves handbags and flowers my Daughter suggested to cascade the flowers down the handbag.
I am quite pleased with how it turned out.
The letters were made by gluing 3 lots of each letter to make them stand out nicely.
Put some ribbon on the handle of the bag to represent a scarf.
Hope you like this as much a I do.

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