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 the wonderful comments you make.
I really do appreciate every one.

A few of you mentioned using my last card again, but I unfortunately didn't have it back from my sister before she passed away, and don't like to bother my BIL at this sad time.

So onto a happier note, today I have a card I made for my Stepson, and his wife's 3rd Anniversary.
They have been together for 10 years, but only married 3 years ago.
I know her fave colour is purple so this what I came up with.

This is a 8"x7" size card.
I again drew around the largest of the Sue Wilson's Pierced Rectangles Die, and cut out my base card.
I then layered up with the die, and cut out a aperture which I used a snippet of card and double sided stick sheet, and added some Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice Glitter.
I also added some corner die cuts to each corner inside the aperture.
The flower is the same die as yesterday's flowers just pinched the flower petals the other way to give a type of Lily looking flower.
The button on the bow is purple, but it looks black in the picture.
Cut the sentiment banner by hand.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Jenny I can totally understand why you didn't get the card back, I didn't realise you'd already sent it. Sorry.
I love your purple anniversary card, the sparkle in the centre really makes the sentiment pop. A lovely shade of purple too.
I'm sure your stepson and wife will love it.

Hugs Erika. x

Oh this purple is so beautiful Jenny - one of my fave colours. The die-cuts and embossing, as always, are stunning - Michelle x

The deep rich purple makes the sparkle of the white center show off so much. Love the inner framing die - so lacy & delicate, and the pretty embossing of the outer frame. Of course your lovely bows with the 'jewels' inset, and of course that gorgeous flower. They will love it. TFS & Hugs
