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 at last it has rained in my part of Kent over night, as we were desperate for rain.
The grass was all dying everywhere as it hadn't rained for a long time here.

Today I have a card I made for the Allsorts Challenge. 
Quite pleased with how this one turned out as I am still struggling with Mr Mojo as he is being quite lazy of late.
I think the old hot weather sizzled his brain. LOL.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The coloured card is Hunkydory pearlised card, and isn't it a lovely colour.
The die I used for the white was a Tattered Lace Shabby Offset Square Die which I cut twice and cut apart to use as corners.
The Flowers are Tattered Lace Daisy Dies.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Jenny you made some gorgeous cards! Because of the heat I missed a lot of them and I am so glad weather is changing now back to 'normal'! AS my husband said: people in our countries have not been 'made' for the heat'!

Gorgeous colour Jenny, love those flowers and the way you have used TL die for the corners and a super design.
Thank you for joining our 'Flower Power' challenge this week at Allsorts.


Liz said...

Fabulous card, Jenny. I wish I could make cards like this when my mojo has gone for a little walk! I love the flowers and the colours are just beautiful.

We've had rain more or less non-stop today and the weather has been pretty cool for the last few days. What a change from exactly a week ago when we were watching my great nieces and great nephew in their school sports day, slapping on the suncream and huddling under parasols to try and keep out of the sun! xx

Beautiful card, love how you used the shabby offset die. Soggy here too, the bunnies are camping out under the step in their run staring at the rain in disgust!

Darnell said...

Wow, Jenny, the color of this is magnificent! I'm glad Mr. Mojo came back with some much-needed rain! I know the oppressive heat we get sometimes really fries my creative juices, too! Here's to more rain for your area!! Hugs, Darnell

Take care.
