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.
I do hope you are all keeping well, and for those of you not feeling well at the moment sending big hugs your way to try and help.

Well what a busy week I am having as all the challenges I like to support need an entry, and it's my DT card tomorrow for the MAWTT challenge also.
So here is a card I made for the Allsorts Challenge this week.

The clock face is from an old PVC tablecloth which needed replacing.
So rather than throw it away I cut out the best clock faces hoping to use them one day.
So some of them came in very handy for this card.
I die cut a circle frame twice out of black card to make it a little thicker.
I added some black, and clear rhinestones to the edges, and some butterflies, and then pearls to the hands of the clock.
I do hope this counts as Snippets as I would like to join my friends over at the Snippets Playground with this also.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter the following challenges with this.
