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.

I would like to welcome my newest follower Henry, and thank you for choosing to follow me, can you let me have a link to your blog if you have one so I can also follow you.

Had quite few busy days catching up on things I had let slide last week due to all the baking for the Mcmillan coffee morning.
I mentioned I had a few Thank You cards to make to say thank you for donations that were given as raffle prizes, and some Bric a brac that also went on a stall to help with the final amount.

So here is one of them.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The flowery paper is from a MCS CD.
I die cut a few different circles, and finally stamped my Thank You and heat embossed it with Sea Foam White embossing powder.
Finally I cut out a couple of flowers from the left over paper, and added a ribbon bow.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Oh this is gorgeous Jenny and I love the flowers made using the same paper, what a brilliant idea xx

MaryH said...

Such pretty that floral pattern. It makes me think of bygone days, when the world seemed a much more gentle place. And it looks lovely paired with the white doily layers. Of course your pretty matching flowers add more elegance with the pearls and texture of the blue leaves. Love the pop of bling at the corners. Hope all has been well with you & Tony. Miss hearing from you, but we'll catch up! TFS & Hugs, Happy wkend. Hope you get things caught up from your work with McMillan. I see Mr Clunes does a lot for that worthwhile charity.
