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.
Had family over for tea today so lots of cooking and clearing up after they went home.
Oh it's lovely to have them here, but the washing up afterwards is not great.

Well on to my card for today it's a card I made for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge, and the theme this fortnight is Author, and book inspired.
Now I don't read much these days, but was inspired by The Harry Potter books, as I think the stories are superb and very wonderful.
Oh to have J.K. Rowling's imagination must be wonderful.

This is a 8"x8" size black card I made.
I matt and layered it with Kraft card, and paper.
I distressed the edges with scissors, and inked the edges with Rusty Hinge DI.
I then sprayed the whole card with Phill Martins Old Gold  Cosmic Shimmer Mist which gave it a lovely gold sheen.
I used Phill Martins Chic Pumpkin Sparkle Texture Paste through a mask, and lots of bits from my stash to finish it off.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Your design is wonderful as always!

What a wizard of a card Jenny, love all the different elements to it.
My pal who does the felt hats has been asked to make a sorting hat. I shall have to take a picture of it when it is finished.
Great layering on your card and perfect colour combo.

Hugs Erika. x

Kathleen said...

I read a lot when on holiday, sat in the sun and then shade but dare not read at home or I would not get anything done as once I start a book I can not put it down till I have finished it.
This is a very clever creation, love the owls and the photo's, great design.

What a great card Jenny, and so different from your usual. Harry Potter fans will love this. I know what you mean about clearing up after visitors. We had the same yestererday when John's family came from St Albans. But it was great to have their company. Love and hugs Christine xx
