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 forgot my Daughter's place of work is having a summer fete on Saturday, and she asked me to have a stall.
So it's rush, and get cards made for the stall.
I have few already but I want to make new ones too.

So while creating I managed to make this card for the Allsorts Challenge which is a photo inspiration this week.

So here is my card I made.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started on Sunday spraying white watercolour card with my Tattered Angels misting sprays in Yellow, Red,
and Green to get the shades I was after for the challenge.
I have had these for some time, and they give a lovely mica glitz when dry, but unfortunately it doesn't show on camera. 
Today I put the card together with some poppies I cut out with scissors, but before that I used a sharpie pen in red to give them more colour.
I drew the stems with another green sharpie pen, and added some small black bits to the stems to make it look like the furry bits on the stems.
Cut out my grass by hand with scissors.
Lastly I added some of the lovely Wendy's Butterflies she gave me so I can join the Butterfly Challenge as well.

Photo inspiration for the Allsort Challenge.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Mawtt Challenge tomorrow.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this in the following challenge.

A really beautiful Poppy creation following our inspirational photo at Allsorts challenge Jenny, many thanks for joining in. And so nice to read you used your Glimmer Mists, I thought I was the only person left who still had a hoard of them and find them fun to use.
