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 haven't been about much, but I caught a bug, and haven't been very well the last few days.
Not sure where I got it from, but it has made me feel very tired as well as giving me a temperature also.
I admired a book card on Kathy Clement's blog, HERE and decided to make one similar myself.
Mine isn't as good as Kathy's, but I enjoyed making this.
Sorry this is very picture heavy.

This is 8"x7" in size.
The lovely bird papers were a free download from C&C club wesite.
I started by covering my white book card with coloured paper in a aqua colour.
I then inked the edges with Peacock Feathers DI.
I added my other papers and also inked them.
Then I decorated it with bird images, and decoupaged the front bird.
Lastly I added gold gilding wax to the edges to give it and old look.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is just awesome (and of course I love the bird theme). It looks like a labor of patience & love, and of course, you've done the project just as wonderfully well as you do your cards! Hope you feel better real soon & get your energy back. TFS & have a great week.
