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 evening dear blog friends and visitors. 
I hope you have all had a wonderful day today and have managed
to find a little time to do some crafting.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my work.
I really enjoy reading what you think of my creations.

My card today is one I made today.
There is a little story attached to this one.
The die cuts in the center of the card were sent to me from
Patricia of Summerhouse Crafts. She kindly sent them glued
together to show me how to make her wonderful Christmas
decoration. She also kindly sent me enough to make one of these
decorations which I showed on my blog before Christmas.
Now I had the one she glued together left,  so me being me
decided to make it into a card.
I inked the and glittered the edges a while ago and then I came
up with this idea to turn it into a card.
I hope you like it, I was quite pleased with the result.

Now the inside.

I used some paper from my Dessert Blooms Pad.
Some maroon card, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Spellbinders Decorative Circles, Marianne Creatables for the
corners, and I believe the center is Spellbinders Iron works
Accents and Motifs correct me if I have that wrong as I don't
own those dies. The flourishes are Spellbinders Foliage 2 dies.
Thank you again for your continued support of my work.
I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday. 
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
