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 talented crafts peeps out there, and of
course any visitors that may land on my blog today.
I am sooooo very grateful for all your wonderful comments
on my work.
You are so very kind to spare your precious time visiting me.

I looked after Ellie today so I was a little bit late visiting your wonderful blogs and making comments. I sure hope I haven't
missed any of you out.

Now to my card today,  I bought this belt from  Primark a few
years ago because I liked the leather flower, but never whore it.
So I suddenly thought this would make a nice card.
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

Now the inside.

This card is an 8x8 size.
Matted with dark brown card stock and then I used some paper
from a pad of papers called Desert Blooms.
I cut out my corners from the Marianne Creatables Die.
This is a new die I have just bought as I loved it so much on
Rita's blog when she used it.
I cut out the Grand Decorative Circles, and the added my 
leather flower, and some Daisies from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Thank you again for your visit.
I hope you all have a fantastic Thursday, and that you can slot
some craft into your busy day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Very clever use of the leather flower Jenny, I like to pop into Primark and always go to their accessories bit to look at their clearance bit. I love your layering, can I ask how you have done your brown layer under the flowers? xx Flora

Good Morning Jenny,
What a fantastic card, love the little flowers as well as the big one. I really like how you have put it all together.
I love picking up accessory things in Primark I use them for everything other than what they are meant for.
Have a Great Day
