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 all my friends and visitors.
I do hope you are having a good week so far,
and managing to get lots of craft slotted in.
Thank you for all your comments on my last card,
and box.
I very much appreciate your comments and time spent visiting me as I know we are all so busy.

Today I have a card I made for Christine Harrop
to say thank you for a lend of a die.


Now the inside.

This card is just under 6"x6" size.
I made the base card from my snippets left over
from when I make an 8"x8" card out of A3 card.
I happen to know Christine likes purple.
The paper is Papermania Capsule Collection.
This is only a one sided paper so I photo copied
it on to card, and then photo copied a contrast
one on the back to make it double sided.
Then I made my flower out of the Heartfelt
Creations Sunkissed Fleur Stamp. I had to cut
out the flowers by hand as I am waiting for the 
die to be delivered.
I coloured my flowers and leaves with Whisper pens, and then sprayed them with water with 
Mica Powder in it to give it a slight pearly and
sparkle effect.
Cautionary tale use gloves for this as I had purple
hands for a few days.
While the card was wet with mica water I scrunched the edges of the flower to give it the
look you now see.
I got this idea from the Heartfelt Creations blog
that you can find  Here.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
