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.
Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time spent commenting on my work.
I really do appreciate every one I get from you all.

Today I have a card I made for my eldest Granddaughter's husband.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I found a photo on the internet of a car just like the one he owns, and then made my paper using again my 3D2 Decoupage CD to make the paper out of the photo.

Thank you again for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter the following challenges with this.

A brilliant way to create a personalised background paper and card Jenny, a fabulous male card.

How clever of you to personalize your grandson's beloved car with multiple images of said car, then turn it into this most unique and stunning card design. He will be so pleased! Truly a labor of love that he couldn't go out & buy from Hallmark! Like the way you've used the circles motif and the neutral color palette. Just amazing. TFS & Hugs
