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 another weekend is upon us, and the weather is lovely in my part of Kent.

Going out to for meal tonight to celebrate my Son, and my Granddaughter's Husbands Birthday.
Their Birthdays were on the 30th and the 31st.

Made this card yesterday for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge was so pleased as the last challenge I was one of the top picks.

This is a 8"x6" Tent Style card I made.
First of all I covered my white card with cream card.
Then I delved into my Graphic 45 Ladies Diary paper pad for the paper and the image.
I distressed the paper edges.
I added some lace to the paper at the top middle, and bottom.
I then added a part of a very old feather to her hat, and some pearls as a necklace.
Finished it off with some vintage roses, and hand made leaves.

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.
