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 do hope you all had a super festive season, and for those of you that were not well over Christmas big gentle hugs.
I am just getting over mine, and feeling a lot more energetic now thank goodness.

Before Christmas I was asked to make quite a few special cards for people, and as I can never say no to anyone here is one of them.

 This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to match.
Papers are from the Joanna Sheen Baby Love CD.
I sprayed them with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Pearl Diamond spray which unfortunately doesn't show up on the blog.
Now a tip I found out is you can print on glossy photo paper and spray it with the spray and it looks lovely.
Obviously wait for the photo paper to
to rest for a little before doing this.

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