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 to my blog.
I hope you all had a fabulous day yesterday and managed to slot 
a little craft into your day.
THANK YOU sooooooo much for all your wonderful comments.
I really do appreciate everyone that you make.

I have good news again, I made the top 3 in the Fab n Funky
challenge with my last card.  Yeah.
I am so happy at the mo sitting on cloud nine so to speak.

Today I have a Steampunk card well sort of as I don't own much
steampunk embellishments.
The image is a freebie from this Vince at his blog. Thank you 
Vince for the image.

Now the inside.

I used the Desert Blooms Pad for  the papers.
The image was coloured in with Flexmarkers.
I have used the Grand Labels One Die and reversed the papers.
Di-namics Corners Die.
I saw on Sue Bearhouses blog that she had used some nuts and 
washers on one of her cards so popped a couple of screws under 
the image.  Thank you Sue for the inspiration. 
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful day where ever you are.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY

Good morning Jenny
I don`t normally do anything Steampunk but I love this image and feel I could go with that.
I really like what you have done and of course beautifully coloured.

I am about 50miles from Kinross to the East, you now know the area I am in. Hazel is nearer KInross than me. Yes we have the most beautiful countryside right round us, we are so lucky.
Have a Great Day
