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 very talented friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing for a few days, but my Granddaughter's best friend had a Baby Boy late Thursday night, and I have been busy making a few cards for myself, my granddaughter, and my daughter to give her.
I wanted to do this because it's her first Baby, and she lost her Mum to the big C in the middle of February, and she has been such a treasured friend to my granddaughter.
It was also a bakers day at my other youngest granddaughter's school yesterday so we spent the day together, and boy was I tired when she went as she loves to print things off and then laminate them.

Now I have had a very lucky week with challenges I won the Butterfly challenge, and then on Sunday I won the snippets challenge.
 So this morning I made this card for my snippets entry this week.
It's all made from card left over from other cards I have made.


This is a 6"x 4" size card.
It's what I have left over from an A3 size card when I make my 8"x8" cards.
The embossing folder, the cup stamp, and the sentiment stamp were freebies from a craft magazine.
After embossing I coloured the card with colour cloud ink Rose Blush.
I stamped the image on a snippet of card with London Fog ink, and then coloured it with Promarkers.
I made the flower out of more snippets of paper, and coloured the edges with colour cloud ink.
So I am definitely off to the playground to join my playground mates with some naughty antics, and hopefully someone has distracted Miss Di, and the lovely Parsnip from catching us.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
