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, and craft loving friends.

Sorry I have been missing longer than I mentioned, but my family decided to stay longer than stated, and then there was all the things to do after you have visitors staying.
I do so miss them though when they are gone, so it's good that you have to be busy so you don't  miss them so much.

Today I wanted to create a card for the Allsorts Challenge, and the theme is
 Your Fave Season
I just love Autumn and the super colours of the leaves as they change into such glorious colours and splendour.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started by inking my card with lots of inks to recreate the colours of Autumn.
I used a combo of Izinks, and Distress Inks.
Then I spritzed it with water, and let it dry naturally.
I then stamped my leaves in Archival Potted Soil Ink with a freebie stamp from the Creative Stamping magazine.
The saying also came from the same set of stamps.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I very much appreciate every visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is beautiful Jenny . I do so love the way that you decorate the insides of your cards. IKEA furniture and boxes arrived and now in the throws of building it. It took ages to clear the room and will no doubt take weeks to get straight again. Hugs Mrs A.
