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.

and welcome to all my lovely blog friends and visitors.
THANK YOU for all your lovely comments.
I get really excited reading each one, 
your comments mean a great deal to me.
Every day now I am doing the happy dance after reading them.
My card today is one I would like to enter into The Nearly White
Challenge at Creative Harmony's blog.
So here it is, I have left the sentiment off it as I'm not sure for 
what occasion I would use this card yet.

Ingredients for this is:
5x5 card size Centura Pearl  Snow White card embossed with the
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities So Trendy.
I cut 9 Spellbinders Fancy Crosses and cut away the cross elements.
I interlocked them together and glued them.
Put a light green flat back pearl into the centre of each.
Then I finished off the card with some small bitty flower sequins
in an iridescent pink.
I hope you like it. 
It was a bit fiddly to do but worth it in the end.
What do you think?
Thank you again for your visit and comments.
Have a wonderful crafty Thursday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny.

Hi Jenny,
What a clever idea. Those crosses without the end bars looks fab and they link beautifully. I am like you too, love to play around with my diecuts to see what else they can do.
This us a lovely entry to the Challenge and the little sequins add just the hint of colour. Lovely.
Have a wonderful day. Linda x
