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, to all my talented 
craft friends, and visitors.
Well that's another crafty week, that has flown by, and it's Friday again.
I won't mention the C word as it made peeps want
a bar when they read my post last Friday.

Yesterday I spent the day looking after my little great granddaughter Ellie, so no crafting or,
blogging done.
She is a little treasure, and so very good to look
We went to her local shop as I mind her in my
granddaughter's house, and she was walking round the shop with a little trolly they provide for children. 
She did look so very cute.

Today I have a card I made for 2 reasons, one 
to say thank you, and the other is to enter this fortnights Butterfly challenge.


Now the inside.

Now Mrs A who runs the Butterfly Challenge
wanted to see obviously a butterfly on your card,
or project, and also some stitching be it faux or proper stitching, so I combined the both, as you can see from the inside butterflies.

A3 white card made into an 8"x8" size.
Cupcakecrafting CD Floral Delights for the 
patterned paper, but I print out on card to give 
my cards more stability.
Crochet wool butterfly, I made.
Lace flowers and buttons made from my stash.
Freebie tag die form a magazine.
Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circle Die.
Pinflair butterfly peel off that you can stitch.

Thank you for your visit and time, and all your
wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
Challenge No 3

OMG Jenny this is such an adorable creation!!! LOVE that crochet butterfly on the front ... it would have been perfect for the crochet baby blanket I just finished for a baby shower tomorrow. The baby's room is done in lavender and butterflies ... of course I added a touch of pink for the edging since the baby is a girl! LOL! I don't know how to crochet anything but a double stitch so all my scarves/blankets are just a repeated pattern but they've all been received well so that's most important!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and it was so nice to visit you in return! AWESOME fun here on your blog and I hope to stop back again soon!
