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 craft loving friends and
I do hope you are all having a wonderful Bank
Holiday weekend.
I hope the weather is being kind to all of you.
We have lovely sunshine in Ashford Kent, but the
wind is still a little cold.

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO much for all your
 comments on my last piece of  work.
I get so pleased when I read all what you have to
say about my work, and what is going on with you, at the present time.

I am not doing a lot this weekend maybe some
gardening if this weather keeps up, as I have some
bedding plants to go in my garden.

Today I have a card I made with a new stamp I
bought at my local craft shop. I needed some 
pinflair glue, and some double sided tape.
In my local craft shop if you spend £10 you get
a stamp in a card and when that's full you get
£10 off your next purchase, so this stamp I bought
to make up the difference. I am quite pleased with
how it's turned out. Not one of my best designs but it will do.


Now the inside.

For this card I distressed the paper with Wild Honey, Victorian Velvet, and Vintage Photo distress inks, and then I stamped my flowers all
over it. 
I added some Cosmic Black Pearl Glue dots to it too.
I stamped out my flowers, and coloured them in
with Promarkers, and then cut them out and 
decoupaged them, and added some Stardust Stickles to them.
I added some Cosmic Pearl White Glue Dots to
the corners and round the SB die cut.

Thank you again for taking the time to pay me a visit and make your wonderful comments.
I do hope you all continue to have a fabulous
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny, I love your card, the stamp is beautiful and I adore your combination of distress inks, a really beautiful design.
We have had the most gorgeous day here in Cheshire, such a vast difference from yesterday, when it was freezing cold and high winds. I have done some gardening, and a bit of crafting. Hope you managed to get everything done that you wanted to do.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
