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, and craft loving friends.

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

I do hope you are having a great weekend even though the weather is a bit cold and horrible at the mo. 

Wendy our Team Leader on the MAWTT Challenge puts up a sketch every week on her f/Book page to follow as a little challenge, and HERE is this weeks sketch.

 So this card I made for last weeks challenge.

This card is a 7"x7" in size.
I went with a inverted shaker design for my entry.
The card is Hunkydory, corners are cut from the John Lockwood Sandwich Box Die in a snippet of Gold Mirri.
All the rest used from my stash.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
It's always very much appreciated.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Not just one shaker window, but THREE! (and I've never even done one, after buying that fuse tool!) Love the design of the circles as you styled them, and the fresh yellow green - thinking warm spring. The gold overlay looks like delicate netting and of course the delicate little green and yellow butterflies, along with your always lovely flowers to trim. This is a special card for your special girl. She'll love it! TFS & big hugs. Have a good week.

This is a great shaker card. I never have much luck with them as the baubles always stick to the sides and then don't shake. But I read to powder the edges before adding the bits so will try that next time.
Yours has pretty colours of green and cream and very pretty sparkly shakers.

Hi jenny this is awesome! Love the colours you've used their so fresh and your shaker compartments are so clean. I made one yesterday and made a big boo boo lol! I put in embossing powder instead of glitter lol! Too late to change so left it. I hope you're well and the warm weather is easing your pain a bit xx
