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 talented craft
friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing for a few days, but I 
have been looking after my little great granddaughter, Ellie.

Thank you for all your kind comments on my
attempt at the flowers.
I will be making a few more shortly, but I just
had to make this card for a new challenge, and 
it's all to do with Butterflies, and you know how
I love butterflies and owls.

So here is what I have created for the challenge.


Now the inside.

This is an 8"x8" size card.
The butterfly paper is from a Crafters Companion
CD called Cute Companions Volume 1.
I used a Tonic Die Diamond Swing Ovals for
the inside and the front of the card.
The corner little butterflies are cut from a 
Tattered Lace Die called Chantilly Petal.
The flowers I made from my Heartfelt Creations
Majestic Blossoms Die.
The Ivy is a Creative Expressions Stamp, and I 
coloured it with water colour pencils and cut it out.
The large butterfly is a Spellbinders Fanciful
Flight Die, now this die doesn't come with a 
solid back so I cut around the die to make this.

Thank you again for sparing your precious time
visiting me.
I do hope this dreadful weather hasn't affected 
any of you.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following

Jenny, this is delightful. I love all the different elements you have put together on this card. You have cut round the ivy superbly as those stems are wafer thin!! I'm just so pleased that Mr Linky is picking the winner for me. It is going to be so hard to choose the top 3. Thank you
for fluttering by today. Hugs Mrs A. (Butterfly Challenge).
