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.

Well it was snowing first thing this morning, but as I type this there is some beautiful sunshine out there.
It does make one feel a lot warmer to see the sunshine after so many dull and wet days.
I do hope it's the same wherever you may live.

Today I have a card I made for my Grandson who turned 19 last week.
Oh my how time does fly I remember looking after him when he was little before he went to school. 

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I decided to use more of my stamps this year to make cards, as I subscribe to Creative Stamping magazine and every month you get so many wonderful stamps with their issues.
The ones I used were Sheena Douglas ones that came last month with the magazine, and an old Grandson one I had from years ago.
Used iZink to stamp with.
Kept the card quite flat for postage.
No dies were harmed on this project.LOL

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate your wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is a really perfect card for a chap Jenny, and I bet he was delighted. We have had sunshine down south today after a frosty start, I didn't get to enjoy it though as I was in the office at work all day!! Never mind, we are promised a cold dry week xx

Very very different card using a musical theme and I love the stamps and the design of the card. Lovely shades of blue too.

What a stunning shade of blue this card is and I love the embellishments. Now that would be because I tapped the parcel up and then realised I had enclosed the printed address so I opened up one end slid it out and re tapped up for extra security. Would have been quicker just to have switched the printer back on and printed off another sheet. Lol. Hugs Mrs A.
