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 good morning to all my wonderfully talented followers
and visitors.
May I say a big welcome to my new follower, and thank you
for joining my blog.
Well it's Sunday, which can be a very busy day for most people.
So I do appreciate all of your comments and time spent visiting
my blog.
THANK YOU soooooooo much.

Today I was lost for a title for this card, so as there is a lovely
butterfly on it, and as I do love butterflies sooooo much, hence 
the title.
That brings me to small story about when I visited Butterfly 
World in the Isle of Weight.
I was very nervous about going in to see the beautiful butterflies.
You see I was afraid if one flew at my face I would get afraid 
and make a swipe at it, and perhaps do it some damage.
Well let me tell you I needn't have been afraid, because I wouldn't
have missed such a wonderful opportunity to see some exquisite
butterflies, and some really quite large variety too.
They had a special curtain to stop any from escaping into the
gift shop next door, well let me tell you one kept on trying to
get through with no avail, but he or she kept on trying.
Well I've waffled on toooooo much yet again.
So here is my card for today.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

This card was made with holographic mirri card, papers from 
my stash.
That Special Touch Mask Ivy although it doesn't look like ivy.
Some punched flowers layered, a Martha Stewart Edge Punch,
and of course the Spellbinders Fanciful Flight Die.
I hope you like it.
Thank you again for taking the time to visit.
I hope each and everyone of you has a wonderful Sunday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny - thank you so much for your very kind comment on my card. The pearls I use come in two sizes and these are the larger of the two (was all I had left) I think I prefer the smaller ones. They are flat backed which makes them easier to stick on. I buy them from Wild Orchid - I think they might be in the wedding section. M.L.
