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 welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
I very much appreciate it.

Today I have a card I made to try out some Shabby Chic, and Mixed Media combined.
I hope you like it.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The paper is from Magnolia Lane paper pad.
I distressed the edges, and used Victorian Velvet DI to ink the edges.
The images are from the paper pad also, and I just added some lace, and die cuts to the edges.
I made the flower and the leaves to match the image of the Magnolia.
My Trio for the challenge is 3 leaves, and 3 Happy Birthday greetings.

Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
