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.

Sorry I have been missing again, but it was half term last week, and Nanny to the rescue with child minding duties again.
I do love to look after them as we have such a great time, and a lot of baking was done yet again.
On the weekend I had a couple of rush orders for wedding cards, and boxes from my daughter for her work colleagues to give to their staff members who are getting married.

So onto my card today it was made for my little Great Granddaughter who   loves to run, and do gymnastics.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image is a pre-coloured one from Polkadoodles.
I just added the grass with Promarkers.
I made the background paper yet again with my 3D decoupage CD from the image.
I also added some glitter to her hair toggles, and trainers, but you can't see that very well.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

As ever, you come up trumps with the specialty designed cards. Your 7 yr old will adore this, since it is geared to her specific hobbies. Amazing that you had just the appropriate image. Love the design layout and the sparkling details that will be dear to any 7 yr old's heart. It's just fabulous, and so clever too. Glad you had fun and got some baking time enjoyed. Bet the results were yummy too. TFS & Hugs
