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 was surprised by how many of you seem to be suffering with colds also at the mo.
So sending big germ free  hugs for those in need at this time.

To take my mind off my cold which is still hanging around I made a card for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge that I like to support.
This took me 2 days to design as the old brain and the mojo just wasn't helping at all, but it all came together nicely last night.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I found some rainbow colour paper in my stash so I distressed all the edges of the paper and card, and inked it with different colour inks.
I then stamped raindrops with London Fog Ink, and an Inkylicious Stamp.
The words background, umbrella, wellies, and puddle were all freebie stamps from the stamping magazine a couple of months ago.
I added glossy accents to the raindrops, and the puddle.
Some flowers as April Showers bring on the flowers.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny this is a stunning card. There haven't been many showers this April. We keep having to go out and water the new turf which is a shame. Have a great week. Hugs Jackie
