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 welcome to my blog all my craft loving 
friends, and visitors.
Well the storm hit us and we survived without
any damage thank goodness.
I feel for anyone who wasn't so lucky as us.
I had a very restless night though as the noise kept waking me up.

My card today is for the Pixies Playground Snippets challenge, as it was made out of snippets.
I still find it amazing what you can create out of


This is a 6'x6' size card.
I embossed my snippets card with my embossing
folder that came with my E Bosser
Then I stamped the image on another snipptes
bit of card, and coloured it in with Promarkers.
I added some cosmic shimmer glue dots in red.
The sentiment stamp was a bargain from 
Papermania stamps set of 9 stamps for £1-99
I do love a bargain and these are excellent 
stamps for the price. I bought it at the Works.
I used a red Promarker round the edges of the
embossed card and the stamped image.

Thank you again for you visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
Week 96

Hi Jenny, just saw your card at Pixie's Snippet Playground, and came over to say Hi, and join as your newest follower. Hope you'll find time to visit me when you can. I love your card. Poinsettias are one of my weaknesses when I'm looking at stamps, and you've colored this up so beautifully. Loved that embossing on the background too. Really made your stamped image pop. TFS & Hope to see you often at the Playground. Also happy you didn't have any damage from the storm. It sounded dreadful when I read about it on MSN
