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 a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warm welcome to anyone that looks in on my work.

Today is the start of a new challenge over at
It's the B Teams turn and Janis is our lovely host for this challenge, and she would like Rainbows on your entries please.
The Challenge runs from 1st of March to 6PM on the 14th of March.
Now this set me a challenge as I couldn't think of anything to use then I remembered I had some freebie stamps from a few months back with Rainbows on them.
So I made this Z Fold card, and was quite pleased with how it turned out.

I started by making my Z Fold shape by the way this is fast becoming one of my fave shapes to make.
Cut my matt layer, and then inked them with Worn Lipstick, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Fossilized Amber DO Inks.
I stamped the raindrops randomly by hand with Memento London Fog Ink.
Then I stamped my images with Archival Black Ink, and coloured them with Derwent Water Colour Pencils, and fussy cut them out.
I decoupaged the yellow, and orange brolly to make it stand out a bit.

I do hope you can join us for this challenge as we love to see what you create for this theme.

I would like to enter this into the Allsorts Challenge things begining with B are Brolly, Bows, and Blue.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Wonderful card Jenny, love your Z-fold cards. The background panels look great, when I first saw the card I thought they were all from a paper pad...wonderful to read how you created them. Love the rainbows and little girls too :)
Hope your weather isn't too bad, we have rain today but it is freezing as soon as it hits the ground unfortunately so a bit slippy out there,
Stay safe,
Hugs Kaz xxx

Hi jenny. This card is beautiful, colours so vibrant which is just what we need in this dreary weather. I love the z fold cards and did my first for a DT which will be posted in few days. Thought they'd be difficult. I hope you've managed ok in this cold weather? Luckily it's warmed up a bit so my bones are feeling relieved lol. Thanks for answering my question on your boxes. I will be shopping about now as I've got a score box folder too but haven't used it much . Have a lovely week x

Patricia said...

Wow! Jenny, that's a real cute, colourful card. Love it.
I love the style of it as well.

What a delightful card Jenny. I would run in the other direction if I heard the word rainbow, but you have created such a lovely card that's full of cheer and joy! That sentiment is a perfect fit, and I love how the umbrella creates a 3D scene! Just fabulous Jenny! hugs :)
