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 for all your get well wishes, I am still not feeling 100% but at least I have a bit more energy now, and am eating a little.
I have lost some weight too so that isn't a bad thing in my case.

Today I have a card I made with the Allsorts Challenge in mind, and I also used lots of Snippets too so I will be joining my playground friends with this as well.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The design was inspired by Carol of the Dreamies  with a few of my own tweaks.
All the black and white card used was Snippets. 
The flowers were created with a very cheap stamp and die from the works.
The leaf stamp is a Inkylicious one.
The corners are a Tonic Die.
I made the mistake of putting the faux stitching round the edges, and wish I hadn't now.

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

I would like to enter this into the follwing challenges.

Hi Jenny, sorry to hear you have not been too well. And thank you for popping over to my blog the other day. Yes was not far from you over the weekend down in Tenterden where Mum lives. Long journey but pleased to be home and pleased to have seen her.

Your card is lovely, very stylish. I am getting back to crafting missed it while I have been away.

Take care and hope you feel much better today.

Sorry to hear you are still not feeling 100%, could do with the weight loss myself too but not from being ill.
A super card today, I love a B and W combo, with the lemon flowers which really pop.

Hope you are feeling much better soon.
Take care, hugs Erika. x

Wow Jenny, this really is gorgeous too! How clever to do the cut and rolled back bit on the front - love the black and white with the pop of lemon!

Hope you continue to improve!

This is beautiful Jenny. I love the monochrome with the pop of yellow flowers and leaves and the roll back is a super idea. Barbxx

This is a striking colour way and the folded back centre is very clever.

Hi Jenny
Gorgeous card. The rolled bits look like a frame.
Hope you're back to full fitness soon. Not a nice way to loose weight when you're poorly so take care
