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

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

I have family visiting  so sorry if I haven't been able to visit just managing to do my DT comments at the moment.
Just thought I would pop on , and explain why.
While here I thought I would show you the other wedding card I made for my sister to give her Granddaughter.

This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
I used Tattered Lace Shabby offset Die for the large tag.
Meade a pocket for the tag to slot in.
The lace is from E Bay.
The organza flowers are from Hobbycraft.
The ivy is a die from Sheena Douglas.
Just sprayed the card with Tattered Angels spray to get the glitz and colour then inked through the die to get the veins of the leaf with Memento Northern Pine Ink.

Service will be back to normal on Sunday hope fully. LOL

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

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.

Sorry I haven't managed to visit this last couple of days after the mammoth task of the photo taking, and posting of my memory album I have been having trouble with the top of my spine, and this affects my right hand, and using my mouse.
I have tried to use my left, but I just can't seem to do that.

Well it's the 25th of the month, and time for the Rudolf Days Challenge over at Scrappymo's blog HERE
This month it's my turn for the DT card.
The challenge runs from the 25th of the month to the end of the month.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
Maureen offers a lovely prize to the winner too, and it all adds to your cards made for Christmas which is a good thing of course.
So onto my DT card which was a quickie this month because of my commitment to the Memory Album.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The glitter card came from the pound shop, and the Christmas hats from The Works, the stamped sentiments were from a some stamps I bought from The Works quite a few years ago, and they were £1 for 9 stamps, and they are brilliant to use too. 
What a bargain.
The stamps were stamped with memento Lady Bug ink.  

As always thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

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

Also a welcome to anyone just looking at my work.

I am back today with a card and box for my DT  over at
It's the B Teams turn and the lovely June is our host for this challenge, and she would like to see Flowers as the focas point of your entries please.
The challenge runs for a fortnight, and closes at 6pm on Wednesday the 4th of July.
Please pop over to the challenge to see my teamies wonderful DT work, and enter if you can.

This is a 8"x8" size card, and box I made to fit it.
The papers are printed from a MCS CD.
Decided to go with a bunch of flowers as my focal point this caused me probs as I had to make the base of the box deeper to accommodate the bunch of flowers.

On an another note I have finished my album just have to photograph it now.
Oh my word that is going to be a lot of pictures wish I could video it.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time, and patience with me.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
