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 friends, and visitors.

Sorry I have been missing for a while again, my Daughter has been on holiday so I had a girly week with my Daughter and Granddaughter, and it was lovely to get out of the house for a change pity the weather was awful last week.

I will be missing in action for a while also as I have lots of family Birthdays this month, and 2 wedding cards and boxes to make for my sister who lives in Wales, and as usual I have left it to the last minute to make them.

So today I have a Christmas Milk Carton  I made to join in the Allsorts Challenge this week as I do love to join this wonderful challenge, and I have been very lucky, and won quite a few times, and also been lucky enough to be chosen in the top 5 a few times too.

This was made from 2 sheets of 12"x12" card from the works paper pad which is really more like card than paper.
The little holographic angels my sister gave me.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I will try and get around to visiting soon.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, a super little gift box for some one special, although it must be big due to the 12 sheets of paper! Love the Bright stickers against the darker background. I hope you get to enjoy spending time with your family with all the birthdays during the month... have a wonderful week... Megan

Brilliant Carton in Christmas colours, love it.
Glad your OK! and just been busy. Life gets in the way sometimes, as long as it's in a "good" way that's not so bad.
Stay well and happy
