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 craft loving friends, and visitors.
May I say a big thank you to my newest follower, and thank you so much for joining me on my crafting journey.
I do hope you are all enjoying your weekend, as the weather has not been too good.

I have been playing with my ink dusters again, and I hope this card looks okay.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used a snippet of card to do my ink dusting, and stamping on with Memento Inks.
Some of the black card used was also snippets so I will of to join my playground friends again this week.
I was one of the featured cards in the playground last week with my little book so I am really a happy bunny today.
I used the Delicate Vines Inkilicious Stamp for the background.
Sorry about the inside photo, but for some reason when I photograph the inside of some cards I get a yellow colour near the fold especially on white card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, your card looks more than OK! I really like how you've just used black ink for your background and added colour to the main focal image. I also like how the vines blend from your main image into the background. The inside of your cards always look as special as the outside and this just goes to show how much hard work you put into them. Enjoy the rest of your evening. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Darnell said...

This is a beautiful scene, Jenny.

I have not made scene cards yet but have been collection the sorts of stamps needed to do so and think I finally have enough to do a simple scene. Will tag yours as inspiration.
