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

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

A few weeks ago I was asked by a neighbour to make a wedding card and box so this is what I made.

This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
I used 2 different colour pearlised card.
The matt layer and corners are an iridescent, and have a slight lilac sheen to it, as you can see on the box.
I had to redo the verse inside as it went blurry, and I didn't
 re-photograph it again.
 Flowers from WOC.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
