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 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 very talented friends, and visitors.
May I say a big warm welcome to my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to press the button and follow me.
I hope to see you back as often as you can spare the time.

Well when I posted my last card I had 3 challenges in mind, but decided to make a different card for the 3rd challenge instead, as I won on the Pixies Snippet's Playground Challenge the other week and wanted to use my lovely embossing folder I won.

This is a 6.50" x6.50"size card.
I used some snippets of white card, and black card for the embossed layer.
I then embossed the middle section with more snippets again, and decoupaged it with some lace either side.
The black lace is the white coloured with a permanent marker.
The flower, and the leaves are also cut out of snippets, and I added Cosmic Shimmer Midnight Snow to the centre of the flower.
Finally I stamped one of the lovely sentiments that came with embossing folder, and cut it out with a circle die.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
I really do appreciate your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
