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.

Good morning to all you wonderful talented crafts people and

It is St Andrews Day today. So Happy St Andrews Day to our
wonderful crafts people that live in Scotland.
I hope you had a wonderful Thursday and are nearly ready for
I know I'm not ready yet, I'm only ready when all the shops are
closed. lol.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my work.
I very much appreciate everyone that is made.

I am up on cloud nine at the mo as I entered a card into 
The Stamping Shack challenge and came 2nd to the great
Sue Bearhouse isn't that just fab.

My card today is one I'm not sure about, you know every
once in a while you make something and it just doesn't
feel right.
I will be very interested to view your comments about it.

Click on the photo to get a closer look.
 Now the box.

This card is an 8x8 size.
The stamps used were Sam Poole's Carte Postal.
I distressed the card and box with Wild Honey Distress Ink,
and Tea Dye Distress Ink.
I cut out some leaves from the Foliage 1 Die, and the metal
stamps were done with Metal Magic.
I await you opinion on this because as I say this never seemed
quite right to me.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Lovely card Jenny - I think we all have to move out of our comfort zone once in a while.

Sue said...

This is wonderful Jenny. I think it's good to try something different and the colours and textures you have used work so well together.

Well done on the challenge too and thanks for the mention. It was such an honour to win. Your entry was gorgeous too.

Hugs Sue

Congratulations on your second place - next time it will be first! As the others have said, we are never happy out of our comfort zone (remember my shabby chic card?)but this is great. Next time will be easier because you have already taken the first step. Have a good day. Christine x

What is there not to like Jenny? I think you are not sure because it is different to your usual style and out of your comfort zone. I personally think it is brilliant.. and even better in close up. Great box as well. I love the twiddly bits.

Oooh Pidgy is well stuffed and feeling tres tres happy. Says he doesn't feel peckish! at all. He thanks you for your grovelling concern - LOL!!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Congratulations on your 2nd place soon it will be first.
I like this, as others have said it is good to get out of your "comfort zone". I for one find that very difficult.
Have a Great Weekend.
