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.

Hi and good afternoon dear blog friends and
Sorry I didn't post yesterday, but as it was a 
cooler day in Kent, so I did a major clean up 
and tidy in my craft room.

I also had to take a faulty Hougie Project Book
back to my local craft shop, because it was faulty.
There were 3 pages missing, and 3 pages 
repeated in it.
While I was there they still had a 50% off 
everything sale, except for CD, so you can't
pass up an offer like that can you. lol.

Thank you for all your comments on my last
I very much appreciate you comments and time
spent visiting my blog.

Today I haven't the other grandson card as
promised, but a card I have made for the
Pink Gems Challenge.


Now the side view.

I cut the shape card out of a new die I bought
Sorry don't know the name or make of it as it
had no name or make on the wrapping.
I cut out the shape by extending the die over
the edge of the cutting board.
Cautionary tale if using a E-Bosser don't use
it for this type of project as it bends the die.
Luckily it went back okay, so next time I will
use the Grand Calibur, because I know it is
okay for this type of cutting.
I inked my white card all over with Dusty
Concord Distress Ink to make it purple.
I embossed some pearly metallic card and 
cut out the shapes a little smaller, for the base
and top of the  easel.
I used a Pink Gem image colored in with 
The button in the middle of the bow I 
coloured and glittered to match the card.
Everything else from my stash.

Thank you again for you visit to my humble
I hope everyone has a super crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Another great card Jenny. Oh we all like a bargain and as long as it gets used then its worth it. It was overcast here until about a half hour ago and it's burning off making it very hot again.
