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 very talented friends, and visitors.
Another weekend is upon us, and I do hope you are all having a good weekend.
My card today was made to enter the Frilly and Funkie challenge.
I thought I would go with Autumn colours again.
So here is what I came up with.
I hope you like it.

This caard is 8" in dimensions.
I started by cutting out an 7" circle card from a 8" square white card.
Then I cut out the same sizes in black card, and covered the white card so I hade a black base easel card.
I then used my Martha Stewart circle punch Floral Web design at the measurements of 8" and covered the bottom of the card and the front of the easel.
I cut a 6" one out of black card also
I used Phil Martin's Old Gold gilding wax on the edges.
I used the gilding wax, and some gold stickles on some leaves I had, and added them to the edge.
Finally I die cut some circles, and added a sentiment to the middle.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
I very much appreciate every one.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Indeed I DO like it - very much. Love the shaping and the lacy openwork for the background on your gorgeous leaves. Autumn colors are my favorite I think (until I see the Christmas colors!) Well done on such a beauty. TFS & Hugs
