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 good morning to all my talented followers and visitors.
I hope you had  a wonderful Monday, and that you managed
to get some crafting slotted in somewhere in the day.
THANK YOU for all your recent comments, and for sparing
the time from your busy lives to visit me.
My card today is an idea I got while I was blog hoping.
I visited Sue Ps blog and she enters the Twinches Challenge.
I liked her entry so much I decided to have a go myself,
so hear is my humble effort.
For any one who wants to join in here is the link. 

                         Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

I started with a piece of card made into a 2inch square card.
Then I watered down some PVA glue and painted it on my 
card, I then added some pink tissue paper with pink metalic
butterflies on it, I dried this with a heat gun and did the same
thing all over again.
I added some blue mica powder this time and more glue and
dried it again.
I then stamped my image and coloured it in with Promarkers.
I added some glitter glue and some little embellishments from
my stash.
I hope you like my effort.
I'm not at all sure about it. 
So what do you think.
Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi Jenny, WOW, a lot of effort in creating this but I bet you felt it was worth it. It is absolutely gorgeous, you are very talented. Maybe I will reach your standard eventually. Have a great day.

Morning Jenny, Ditto from Wilma above, this is absolutely stunning, a lot of work but well, well, worth it. The colours you have used are fantastic.
I can't understand why C&C have cut out Sue and Creative Expressions from the Spellbinders POTD tomorrow, to me Sue is the Queen of Spellbinders.
The rain is still coming down here in Cheshire, that's 2 days on the run now, yuck !!!!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good morning Jenny,
Well!!! this is very different, very beautiful for something so small. The colours are so vibrant. You are very creative, I steer away from the MESSY!!! stuff but might just have to have a wee think on that.
Have a great day I hope your weather is a bit better today ours is shocking.
