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.

I do hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
Today is my Daughter's Birthday, and she was going to see Adele tomorrow night, which was a present from her Daughter, but sadly it was cancelled so she will have to wait a little longer for the concert.
Still all was not lost as her fiance took her to see the show Wicked this afternoon I do hope she liked it.

So here is the card I made her for her Birthday as she loves Art Deco. 

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The image, and paper which was really an insert is from the Kanban Klikk USB.
The insert was quite pale so I printed it again on top of the first print to give it more colour.
The oval lacy die cut is a Tattered Lace one that I won on the Allsorts Challenge a couple of months ago.
Cut it out in blue also and used the top and bottom to fill up a gap.
I added a gem to her ring on her finger, and some glitter to her head dress.
Also I added some clear sparkle pen from Crafters Companion to her stole.
Lastly I die cut some flowers out of the card that was left.

Also here is a picture of my Granddaughter on her yearly outing to Ascot Ladies Day the other week.


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

Wow, this is so stunning Jenny! The soft blues are completely dreamy and the sheer white bow with the sparkly gems add a subtle magical quality! The image is fashionable and classy, and I adore the fancy frames layered up to highlight the beautiful lady. Your granddaughter is beautiful too, I can see she has a delightful elegance and charm! Sending hugs :)
