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 good morning to all my talented blog friends and visitors. 
I hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday, and you managed
to fit in some crafting.
THANK YOU sooooooo much for all your lovely comments.
I really do appreciate everyone of them.
A small message for Patricia Howarth did you get my email 
about the boxes, if you didn't, send me an email and I will 
resend it.
My fellow blog buddy Carole Z left a comment yesterday
saying that tags can get addictive. Well she was right.
Because today we have No 2.
I hope you like it.

I made the tag on my Cricut Machine again this time using
the shadow button to create the layer.
I embossed the cream card layer with a Special Touch Mask
although you can't see much of it as I have covered most of it.
I then wrapped some lovely gold ribbon from my stash round
the bottom, I also used the same ribbon through the top of the
I cut a Spellbinders Venetian Motifs Die in black card.
I used kitchen baking parchment to stop the card sticking
in the die.
When this came out of the die it looked so pretty I decided to 
use it on top.
I used some of the Venetian swirls too.
I added a rose I had made quite a while ago out of a very
old book, with the Rose Creations Die.
I sprayed the rose with Crafterscompanion gold glitter spray.
Well that's it for today I hope you like my No 2 tag.
Thank you again for visiting and commenting on my blog.
Your opinions mean the world to me.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY. 
I would like to enter this in the following challenges

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Hi sweetie,
This is truly stunning; elegant and classy. If I may be so bold, I think this is one of the best you have ever done. Simple but full of style, sassy but not without class, layered and yet not in anyway cluttered. GORGEOUS!
Thank you for popping by today and showing your support for Helen. You are so kind (and I've missed you too!!).
Big hugs Linda
