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.

Hello and good morning to all my talented followers, friends
and visitors. 
I hope you all had a really wonderful Saturday, and the weather
was kind to you.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my creations.
It is very kind of you to spare the time to visit my blog, and I 
really do appreciate it.
My card today is my entry into A Boy Thing Challenge at 
The Gem of a Challenge.

and here is the inside.

The ingredients for this was.
An 8x8 cad made out of A4 card stock.
Matted with hammered navy blue card stock.
I then used some Tarten Paper from a book I bought many 
years ago with whole lot of lovely Tarten Papers in it.
It's called Paper Time Tarten-Tastic Edition.
Behind the tarten paper I put some.
Spellbinders Grand Scolloped Ovals,
 cut in half and inked with Distress ink Faded Jeans.
I cut some corners out of the paper to match.
My digi image was you've guessed a free one from the internet.
Coloured in with Promarkers.
I added a sentiment tag bought from Pink Gems digi images.
Then lastly I added some embellishments from my stash.
The inside was Spellbinders Elegant Posts and Square Swatches.
I hope you like card.
Thank you again for your interest.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
I would like to enter this into the.

Morning Jenny, What a lovely card and good luck with the challenge. I love the hands and feet, they are beautiful, and the digi image, that you got free, is a typical boy, just gorgeous.
Can I ask you Jenny, when you make an 8 x 8 card out of A4, how do you join the 2 pages together, is there a small piece folded round the back piece of card ? I have always used A4 folded in half or A3 (which is usually thinner card and doesn't stand up as well) folded in half for my cards, but 8 x 8 gives you more area to cover, and I'm a 'more is more' girl ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
