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.

Oh my goodness my heart goes out to everyone caught up in those tragic events of Saturday Night, and their families.
No words can express the deep sorrow I feel for them all.

This afternoon I had an idea for a card trying to take my mind off it for a little while by crafting.
So I made this card for the Allsorts Challenge, which I won last week, and won a £20 voucher to use at 
If you have never shopped there I can highly recommend their products they stock.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I started by cutting out a circle of white card, and then I stamped some fir branches in Pine Needles DI.
I then heat embossed it with Silver Pearl embossing powder which I have had for years.
Then I started to make my scene by ink dusting the sky and creating hills out of snippets of card.
Then I stamped the fencing in Tuxedo Black Ink, and the trees in Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I then used a used a Quickie Glue Pen to do my glittering for the snow. 
Finally I added a wooden snowman not at all sure I should have added him.
Other than that I am quite pleased with this , and how it turned out.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
