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 my blog, all my craft loving 
friends ,and visitors.
A big welcome to my newest follower, and thank
you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you pop back often to see what I am 

I was overwhelmed by you wonderful comments
on my last 2 creations.
It was well worth all the hard work creating that
word book.
I forgot to say I didn't use a book template that
you are able to buy, I made mine with some
large Alphabet templates I own, and I did all 
the measurements for this my self, and cut out
the letters by hand, as someone had asked about
I made 7 of these such books in different colours
about 4 years ago for my children for Christmas,
but in my excitement I forgot to photograph them.

Now today I have a card I have made for the  2nd
butterfly challenge  for this fortnight which you
will find  HERE  .
In this fortnights challenge you have to use 3 bs
Butterfly, Button, and a Bow, so here is my attempt.


Now the inside.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made the organza flowers with ribbon, and 
added a button to the center.
I added a button to the center of my bow too.

Thank you for your visit and time.
I do hope you are all keeping well.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
