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 afternoon dear blog friends and visitors.
Thank you for all your comments on my last card.
I very much appreciate your visit and comments.

I do hope you are all managing to keep cool in this hot weather we are having.

I decided this morning to make a card for the
Joanna Sheens challenge, citrus colours.
Now I warn you , that you may need sunglasses
to look at this as it's very bright. lol.
So here is my attempt.


Now the inside.

This is a 8x8 size card.
I have not put a sentiment, or verse inside as it 
was not made for anyone in particular. 
I used my embossing folder that came with my 
E bosser again, but I have used the other side of 
the embossing this time.
The circles are SB Grand Decorative Circles Die.
The corners are Marriane Creatables Corner Die.
The papers used for the flowers, are Dovecraft,
and I used a orange chalk to change their colour.
These were made from the Di-namics Plentyful 
Petals Die.
Buttons from my stash for the centers, some 
lovely orange ribbon I won on a blog hop, and 
some beads I bought on a rope for the corners,
and between the ribbon on the circle.

Thank you again for your visit. 
I do hope you all have a wonderful Thursday
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
