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.

It was my DH 77th Birthday yesterday so I am so sorry I didn't get time to visit most of you as we were out ,most of the day.

Today I have snippets make, and something quite different for me.
I have been admiring the lovely inking and scene work on a few blogs I visit, and thought I would treat myself to the Inkylicious Ink Duster starter kit.
So here is my very first effort, all done on snippets card, and so I can join the playmates in the snippets playground with this as I haven't been able to join in for a few weeks now.

This is a 5"x7" size card.
I was quite pleased with my first effort not perfect, but I thought I would show you.
Can't wait to play some more.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

MaryH said...

It looks fantastic to me, so I'm not seeing where 'not perfect' is! And to think this is your 1st attempt...I'm blown away. This is lovely scene, love the mist quality, and the way you've done the edges with the branches. Draws the eye inward to enjoy the birds drifting around that wonderful sky. I think you did a jolly fantastic effort that turned out just splendidly! Can't wait to see one when it's 'perfect'! So glad you treated yourself...I love these Inkylicious scenes when the UK bloggers share them. Happy Belated Birthday to the Mr. and glad ya'll had a nice day out enjoying life! Hugs

Brenda said...

Wow Jenny, this scene is just stunning! Not perfect?!!! Looks perfect to me. I'd never be able to create a scene like that. My jaw is still hanging on the floor that this was your first attempt. I'm completely and utterly amazed at your talent. Happy Birthday to your DH!! How wonderful you guys were out celebrating!! Hugs, Brenda

Gorgeous! This is stunning and seems as if it took hours to make and was made by a crafter who has made inky duster cards many times before!

Fabulous for a first attempt and look forward to any others you will try!
