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 4 Great Granddaughters and 2 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.

Wow has it been hot this last few days.
We had a massive thunder storm overnight, but it's still been hot and muggy today.
I am not good in the heat it saps my energy levels to nil.

I have had a few Birthday cards to make for my Son and my Granddaughter's husband as their Birthdays are the 30th and 31st. 
As each year goes by I struggle to think of what to create for them that I haven't used before.
Still all done and dusted now thank goodness.

I remembered  that I haven't shown this card I made last year.
Was not that pleased with how it turned out perhaps that's why I never showed it.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used my TL Kensington Corner Die that was given to me by my sweet blogging mate SueP.
I cut it out 16 times to create the corners, and the centre diamond.
The card is Creative Expressions Foundation Card in Blush.
At the time I didn't have a peach ink that I would have liked to have created the diamond centre piece, and I think what I used was a Chalk Ink that was too  orangy.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Gorgeous background die, the colours are lovely but 4 butterflies, Jenny that it probably the reason you didn't want to show it as you knew it would be hard for me to handle, lol.
Really cold here and most of the day it was that fine stuff that really wets you through.

Blimey, that was a lot of die cutting! I like to orangey ink, it makes a nice contrast, even if that wasn't the look you were going for! I really like this card, I'm glad you finally shared it with us x
