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 a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

I do hope you had a lovely Easter whatever you were doing.

Before I went to Wales to visit my sister I had to make her some Baby Books that I made for all her other Grand Children when they had their first Baby.
This Grand Child is having her first in May, but doesn't want to know if it's a Boy or Girl till it's born.
So I made one of each to take there in case.
Here is the Girl one sorry a bit picture heavy.

This is a 6"x6" size book and box I made to fit.
The papers, and the image are from the Joanna Sheen Baby Love CD which is no longer available I'm afraid.
The Baby items are from my stash.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

What a totally delightful creation Jenny and a super keepsake as well, a perfect entry at our 'New Beginnings' theme at Allsorts challenge, many thanks for joining in.

So nice to hear the mum to be is waiting for the birth to know if it's a boy or girl, call me old fashioned but that's all part of the excitement.

These are just the most precious things you could make for a new parent, and I predict will become a treasured heirloom. And especially so, since you made with such love. Those pictures are just angelic, and I love all the embellishments you've added to make each so special for a boy or girl. And it's lovely that you can make the boxes to hold the gift too. TFS & Hugs.

Absolutely stunning Jenny and I'm sure that these will be treasured forever. I wouldn't want to take them down for sure! Such perfect little keepsakes. It makes a refreshing change these days for parents to wait until the birth to find out if it's a boy or a girl. When I had mine, you didn't really have a choice. I know it's a long time to wait but it's well worth the wait...happy times x

Barb said...

This is stunning work Jenny and I'm sure will be treasured. I think you're going to be making baby keepsakes for a long time to come! Whether it's a girl or a boy it will be 'just what they hoped for'. Barbxx

So beautiful Jenny! That image is just precious and I adore how you framed it with the dainty doily and the ring of pearls. Love the adornment of the corners and the baby text paper in the background. Such a fancy card layout with so many wonderful details!! Hope all has been well with you. Thinking of you and sending hugs :)

This is beautiful Jenny, and I like the box you have made for it too. I hope you will show the blue for a boy at some time too. Hugs Mrs A.
