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 afternoon to all you wonderful talented crafty people
and visitors.
I would like to welcome my new follower and say a big thank
you for being interested in my blog.
THANK YOU for all the wonderful comments on my last card.
I really do appreciate your visit and comments.

My lovely hubby has just come home from the Supermarket
with the DVD Skyfall for me so I will be glued to the TV
tonight watching the wonderful Daniel Graig.  Drool, Drool.

I made this card today and I am really pleased with how it has
turned out.

Now the inside.

I used the Desert Blooms Papers.
This image is a Saturated Canary one that I chose from my 
challenge win.
It is coloured in with a mixture of Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
The flowers are the smallest of the Anemone Die, the flourishes
are from the Venetian Motifs Die, the die cuts round the image
are the center of the ornate cross from the Crosses 2 Die, I cut 
these in half and glued them around the image.
Inside I have used the Grand Scolloped Square Die, and the 
Grand Squares Die.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday, and manage to slot
some craft into your day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges.  Challenge 158
What's inside.  Pop it Up Make it Girly Challenge.
