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 followers and visitors.
Well we are half way through the week now.
Can you believe it is Wednesday already.
THANK YOU for visiting my blog and taking the time
to leave me a comment.
I really do appreciate everyone that is made. 
You are soooooooo kind.
Before I show my card today I would like to tell you a 
little thing my great granddaughter said the other day.
My daughter and granddaughter just arrived to have a 
meal with us. They also brought my 2 little great 
granddaughters with them one is just 1year old and the 
other is 3 years old.
The 3 year old came in and saw we had moved the 
dinning table to eat our meal.
She then said whats going on here then.
Well we all really started to laugh as it sounded so 
Nothing gets past our little Faye she is a treasure, if 
you know what I mean.
Now to my card. 

The ingredients for this card is.
An 8x8 size card this one was made out of A3 Centura Snow
Pearl card.
Matted with silver mirri card.
Then I embossed some more snow white card with
Spellbinders Enchanted M-Bossability folder.
Moving it to line up the design.
I cut out 5 of the largest Spellbinders Labels Twenty Four.
Then I cut out the 3rd size out of the middle of each.
I then cut out 4 of the 3rd size, and cut the inside of these
with the 2nd size. 
This gave me 9 of the labels 24 frames.
I then layered them with mounting foam to make up this
I then added the size 2 of the labels to the centre and a
Parisian motif to the centre of that.
The corners were made with the sizes 2 and 3 cut in half.
I finished it off with a triple bow and a few bits from my
Cautionary tale if you use Cosmic Pearly PVA glue on
pearlised card the dots go flat as this one did.
So therefore it would have looked better with flat back 
pearls, but what do you think.
I decided to show this card even with imperfections
as I thought the design was worth you having a go at.
I hope you like it.
Well thats all for now folks.
I hope you can understand my babble.
I hope you all have a very wonderful crafty Wednesday.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny.

A beautiful and cleverly designed card Jenny and that bow is gorgeous. Know what you mean about the PVA pearl dots on pearlised card its happened to me so it will be flat backed pearls in the future. Sorry to hear yesterday that your brother in law is not so good, I hope things improve quickly. Hope you've had a good day and enjoy your evening, love Christine H xx
