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's been so very hot in my part of Kent for quite a few days, while other parts of the country have had rain.
Now as you know I get very tired when it's very hot.
I think it maybe something to do with my meds I take so if I haven't visited you lately I am very sorry.

Today I have a card using a new Nbus
stamp I bought recently.
I have been wanting a jar stamp for quite a while so when I saw this I had to have it.

This card is a 7"x5" tent style I made.
The stamp is a Hunkydory one.
I stamped it with Memento London Fog Ink,
Coloured it with Pro-Markers, and then I added some acetate stamped with Stazon Black Ink.
I decoupaged the lid.
The Kraft card is snippets left over from my Butterfly Challenge card which I will show you tomorrow.
 So I will be joining my friends over at the Snippets Playground again this week Yay.
As I have used a Nbus item I will be also joining Darnell on her No 7 NBUS CHALLENGE.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Morning Jenny, I haven't seen a jat stamp before, it opens up all sorts of ideas to fill the jar in with. Very versatile. I too struggle with this heat, especially at night, Janice xx

Brilliant card Jenny! I love the addition of acetate - nice touch! i need to dig my jar stamp set out - although it isn't as magnificent as this one. Think of all the things you can pop inside that jar! Hearts for Valentines Day for starters!

Jenny I hope you are ok. It hasn't been too warm up here in the North of Scotland even though we have had some good weather for us.
I LOVE this jar and the butterflies and sentiment made me smile, such a great card to lift the spirits of someone who is unwell.

Hugs Erika. x

Hi Jenny, it has been really warm hasn't it. I'm usually okay with it but it's made me feel really tired too. I love your card and I bet you'll be able to use lots of different stamps within the jar. I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with. Take care of yourself. Sandra X

A fun get well card Jenny, sure to cheer up any poorly person.
It has been very warm and I sympathize with you, it makes me very tired also, hopefully we will continue to have some nice weather but with a slightly lower temperature.
Take care,

Wow, what a fabulous image and a really fun card, even if it is a get well card and no fun for the poorly person.

Love it.

Darnell said...

I'm so with you on the heat, Jenny! It just drains whatever energy I have and I hate it. I also agree with you that some of the medications we have to take make the heat and humidity worse. I absolutely love the card you made. I've seen a lot of jar dies (and even have a few), but this is one of the best 3D jar executions I've seen in Blogland! It's so sweet with the butterflies and the tent style showcases it brilliantly! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Here's to cooler weather ~ but not TOO cool, lol!! Hugs, Darnell
