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.

Firstly I must apologise for not visiting you, but on top of my Hubbies health problems the housing association in our sheltered housing scheme are modernising the kitchens, and the storage heating system.
Good news this maybe, but it's causing me such a lot of extra work at a time I don't need it.
They start work on the kitchen on the 26th of November so everything has been pulled out of cupboards, and such.
They are also fitting in new storage heaters, and I am getting one in my craft room which I haven't had before only an expensive one to run at the mo, this means a big move around of my craft room to accommodate the work.
I can't believe how much stuff I have thrown out so far. LOL.
Well I have been making cards for over 20 years now so you do accumulate quite a lot in that time.
Not sure when things will be back to normal, but you will know when I start posting more regularly.

In the meantime here is quick Christmas card I made before all the upheaval.

This is a DL size card.
The image if the door is a Hunkydory one just added some snow, and the die cut wreath from their Moonstones Die, and some gems to make it glitter.

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

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

Hubby still quite weak, and still getting very tired, but I think he is improving very slowly thank goodness.
Thank you so much for all your well wishes, and prayers for him.

Another fortnight, and time for a new challenge over at
It's the B Teams turn again and the lovely Jackie is your host, and she would like to see 
on you creations please.
The challenge runs from today, and finishes at 6PM on the 21st of November 2018.
Please pop along to see what my lovely team friends have created.

This is my effort a quickie card, and very similar to the last one only the fox is an Artic one.

This is a 4"x4" size card.
The snowy paper is Hunkydory again.
I stamped my Christmas sentiment on the Misti.
The fox stamp I heat embossed with Sea Foam White embossing powder, and added a few dark shading with Memento London Fog Ink, and then used a sharpie pen for the eyes, snout, ears, and feet
I used some faux snow glued to the card, and wallah another quickie card made.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit especially as I am not able to visit you all for a while.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
