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.

 to all Mother's, and I do hope you are having a great day, and being spoilt by your family.

Today I have a card I just finished so I could join in the Frilly and Funkie Challenge as I do love their challenges.

This is a A5 size card.
The papers I used are Magnolia Lane.
I made the flower from Rose Petals that you buy for wedding table.
Coloured them with Memento Lulu Lavender, and Dandelion for the centre.
Leaves I cut out of some of the Snippets of paper, and coloured them with Memento Bamboo Leaves.
Most of this card was made out of Snippets of paper.
The challenge calls for Know When to Fold Them as a theme so I folded some of the papers just under the flower.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time as I know time is precious to all of us.

Awesome! Love all the 'shabby chic' layers, embellishements & extra details you've dropped onto this gorgeous card...brilliant idea to have the folded fan in that pretty paper, love the torn piece, and you are really developing a style with this look.I love the tiny vintage rose paper on the inside very much too. Well done! TFS & Hugs

What a pretty spring card! I love the folded fan paper behind your pretty flower. I'm so glad you played along with us at Frilly and Funkie! Clearly, you know when to fold 'em!

Absolutely gorgeous Jenny! I love the soft colour palette with the purples, pinks and blues, just lovely! The layering is wonderful, I enjoy all the ripped and torn edges, so shabby! Your big blossom is just lovely, and the postcard is a wonderful element! A really gorgeous card Jenny, love love love!! sending hugs :)
