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.
Thank you for all get well wishes you are so kind.
Hopefully I will try and visit everyone eventually as I am trying to do commenting in stages throughout the days for a while.

So here is a card I made a couple of weeks ago.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock and the image are from Hunkydory.
Placed a few die cuts under the images, and coloured my seam binding ribbon to match with Cracked Pistachio DI.
The Hummingbird Die cut inside is a Nbus one I have had for a while and I coloured it with Memento Inks.
Not too sure about this card as I think there are too many patterns on the front of the card.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

his one is stunning Jenny, the hummingbird image is beautiful and the colours and design complement it perfectly. Love that bow too (I'm rubbish at bows!). As always your attention to detail is superb.

Oh, Jenny, this is the most amazing card! You know how much I adore my little hummingbirds so this card just made me gasp! It is so beautifully designed!! I pray that your pain goes away soon. Please keep resting and don't overdo and please don't worry about visiting me until you feel 100% again! Love and hugs, Darnell

Hi Jenny, I hope you are feeling better today. Love this gorgeous hummingbird (we will have those here in mid-summer). You've made this topper your own, with the lovely doily behind the topper and the trimmings you've added on this pretty card! Your patterns all worked together, and I didn't think you had too many at all! The doily pattern sort of repeated the damask of the background DP, and of course I love the sentiment too! Liked the border flowers that matched the topper flowers. Hugs & prayers that you get some pain relief real soon. TFS

Hi Jenny
Don't be hard on yourself. It's beautiful, both inside and out. This is a super set you got from Hunkydory (as I gratefully know 😉)
Missy Darnell would love this as she adores her hummers.
With all good wishes.
