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.
It was my DH Birthday last Tuesday, and he has a mobility scooter because he can't walk too far these days.
So when I saw this image at Doctor Digi's I just had to have it.
Now this looks nothing like my DH, but he does wear glasses quite similar, and sometimes forgets to put his shoes on so I thought the slippers part was appropriate.
By the way he loved it thank goodness.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I coloured the digi image in with Promarkers, but started to run out of the navy while colouring the trousers.
So they are a bit patchy.
When I had finished colouring my image I photographed it, and made the paper to match with my 3D Decoupage CD from Card Creations Plus.
I also added glossy accents to the glasses.

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