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.

I am sorry I forgot to welcome my newest follower the other day.
I am so happy that you decided to follow me, and I do hope you can pop back when ever you have the time.

Well another weekend is upon us, and it's wet and drab in Kent.
So I do hope the weather is kinder in your part of the world.

Made this card for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge as the theme is 
Be My Valentine.

This is a A5 size card.
The papers are a Cuddly Buddly download.
I distressed the edges with scissors, and then inked them with Fired Brick DI.
The image is off the Internet.
I made my pin, and inked the edge of the roses, and made the flower arrangement from my stash.
I coloured the seam binding ribbon with a combination of Fired Brick DI, and Pixie Powder Lava Red.

Thank you for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Always enjoy seeing your version of shabby chic! Perfect on this vintage looking valentine too. You've got just the right amount of cute embellies to jazz up this bright red Love-y card, with so many different textures, pearls, & fancy trims. Love the tiny envelope, gorgeous flowers, and the image reminds me of those school day valentines we used to pass around. As always, you make the inside just as pretty as the outside!! Hope this is for someone very special. TFS & Hugs
