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.

Good morning dear blog friends and visitors.
I do hope you all had a great and happy festive time these last
few days.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful festive wishes.
I had a wonderful Christmas.

My card today is a commissioned one I made for a lady that
attends my little club, her son was 65 on Christmas Eve.
I hope you like it.

Now the inside.

This card is an A5 size deckle edged.
Matted with with paper from my pad of Dessert Blooms paper.
The other side of the paper was plain colour which I added to
the bottom of the card both inside and out.
I printed my sentiment on the computer and cut it out with
the Spellbinders Labels 24 Die, and then inked round the edges
while still in the die with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
I added some different colour card to each edge of the label.
I also finished off the bottom of the card with Die bits from 
the Spellbinders Fall Foliage Die and glittered the edges.
I added a couple of corners from the Marianne Creatables 
corner die.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday, and manage to slot some
craft into your day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
