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.
Well last week went super fast as usual.
Is it time speeding up, or is it me slowing down so much. 
I think it's me slowing down .

Today I have a card made with 3 challenges in mind.

This is a 8"x7" size card.
The background papers were a download from Cuddly Buddly Crafts, and I thought they were lavender plants,but on a closer inspection I think they maybe bluebells.
The birds and the small postcards were a free download from C&C.
I distressed all the papers and Lavender card with scissors, and added Tea Die DI to the papers.
On the flowers I used some snippets of white card inked with Milled Lavender DI, but it doesn't show much on the photo.
I used stickles on the flowers and leaves, but that doesn't show much either.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

You are not slowing down Jenny - I almost certain that there are fewer than 24 hours in a day now! Got to be that because otherwise why do days go so quickly? Great card card whatever the flowers! You know what Shakespeare said " A rose by any other name would smell as sweet". Hugs Christine xx

Beautiful card. So much detail to look at. Your flowers are lovely that you have made and I love the scrolls and swirls intertwining with them. Not sure of the background papers either but
I do know they are not roses! Lol. Gorgeous make my friend. Inside is as good too. Your cards are always so visually pleasing. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge where your card will be entered twice. Hugs Mrs A.
P.s. As you have used Snippets don't forget about Di's Craftu pixie workshop. .

This is so full of gorgeous details Jenny, such a beautiful card.

Lovely layers, colors and what a pretty theme you selected for this luscious card. The iridescent colors of the bird are so pretty with the other details too. The floral bouquet is beautiful, and loved the torn paper treatment, along with all the other extra embellies you've tucked around this card. Combining all the extras takes skill to make it work well, and you surely did! TFS & Hugs
