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.
Today I have a card I made for my daughter to give her Granddaughter as it was her Birthday on the 10th.
Now my little Great Granddaughter does gymnastics, and also goes to running classes as she is quite a fast runner, and loves to run so her parents put her into training classes.
I searched the digi picture sites till I found the image I put on this card.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I bought the digi image from the Digi Stamp Boutique and coloured her in with Promarkers.
Then I photographed the image and made the backing paper to match on my 3D 2 Decoupage CD.
I inked the edge of the paper,and the image with Colour Cloud Rose Blush Ink.
Now those of you with a keen eye will notice I put the paper on upside down silly me, but it still looks okay I think.

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

Hi Jenny

What a brilliant card .. .. I love the image you have worked with and the way you made your own backing paper too! Very clever.

I always think cards are extra special if you can bring an interest/hobby into the design.

I hope all is well with you.

Love Jules xx
