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.

Thank you so much for all your caring wishes I cannot tell how much I appreciate your lovely comments.

Today I have a Thank You card and Tissue Box I made for the Funeral Directors to show my families appreciation on their wonderful caring service.

The card is 6"x6" in size.
I used a  Paper Boutique Die to make this which I bought ages ago when it was half price.
I used Hunkydory Card stock.
The paper on the tissue box is Paper Boutique too, and the Flower and Butterfly die cuts are Tattered Lace.
I cut the flower out in white and then coloured it with Izink Inks. 

Lots of Snippets used on the card and the tissue box for the die cuts so I will be joining my friends at the Pixies Snippets Playground with my card.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Oh Jenny, you are so sweet and kind to think of the funeral directors while going through this process yourself. The card and Kleenex box are just lovely! I'm sure it will get a lot of use there. I hope you are hanging in there, as most know it is a roller coaster for a while with emotions but I hope you have lots of family and friends around you my sweet friend. Super big hugs, Brenda
