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.
As most of you know I went to Wales to see my 
sister recently, well after I left she took quite ill, 
and is in hospital at this moment.
Nothing too major but, enough to put her there
for a few days at least.
So I made this card for her.
I thought I would go with yellow again as that
colour is bright and cheerful, to cheer her up.

 Now I wrote on it before I photographed it so
hence the odd position of the inside.

Ingredients for this card.

A3 white card made into a 8"x8" size card.
I used my Cupcakecrafting Floral Delights CD
for the papers.
While at the NEC my sister bought me a little
card kit so I used some of the items to decorate
this card.
Ribbon flowers made out of the card kit.
The butterfly is a peel off and put onto the 
snippets of paper left over from my exploding

Thank you again for your visit and your 
precious time spent visiting my blog.
Thank you also for all your wonderful comments
on my work.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Hi Jenny! I can't tell a lie, the butterfly trail stamp already came with the words in a swirl. All I did was work out just where to put the butterfly and the wording so they looked right together :)

Have a lovely weekend!
