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.

Good morning dear friends and visitors to my blog.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, and the weather was
kind to all of you.
THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments on my work.
I do so appreciate everyone that is made.

My card today is an anniversary card for my son and his wife.
I hope you like it.

Click on the photo to enlarge the picture.

This card is an 8x8 size in black.
Matted with cream card, black card, and then cream pearlised
patterned card.
I cut a Spellbinders Scolloped Oval out of the pearlised card.
I added some hand made papers behind the cut out oval.
Some lovely cotton lace and a button I painted and added a 
black stone to.
The butterfly was cut from the Spellbinders Fanciful Flights
Thank you again for sparing the time to visit me today.
I hope you all have a really wonderful crafty Monday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Beautiful anniversary card Jenny, although suitable for many more occasions. Love the cream and black!I have a similar butterfly which Idon't use often because it seems so big. I'll just have to switch to your 8x8 cards I guess! Have a good day. Love from Christine xx
