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 everyone that visits me.
Sorry I have been missing for a week, was feeling a bit down as my DH and I are no longer allowed
to drive, and as we have always had our own car,
this has been quite a blow for us.
Also had a few twinges in my top of my spine so
I thought I had better take things easy for a while.

My card today is for the butterfly challenge.
The challenge rules this fortnight are for one
layer and a butterfly.
Not really happy with what I have created, but
thought it's better than no entry.
I have used mica powders to colour this card.

This is a 6"x6" size card.

Thank you again for your visit and comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following
No 10 One Layer.

What a beautiful card Jenny! Perfect for Mrs A's challenge - those mica powders are gorgeous!

I can understand it's a blow about no longer driving but, might seem easy for me to say, I bet there are also positives if you weigh them up. Sheesh, I sound like Pollyanna playing the 'Happy Game'!

Hugs, Di xx

Hazel said...

Jenny. I feel for you both knowing you haven't got that freedom any more. Time to call in all those favours your children have asked you to take them too. Also sorry your spine is a bit sore. Beautiful card, with great colours. Hazel,x

Christine Harrop said...

Oh Jenny, what rotten luck! I'm so sorry that you are not able to drive now, and also that your back is playing up again! Love your card though! Love and hugs Christine xx

Mrs A. said...

Jenny this is fabulous. Just what I asked for. I love the colours and that butterfly is so gorgeous. Sorry to hear that you are no longer able to drive but just think of the savings. no more petrol, no more road tax or insurance, no more parking or speeding tickets either. Time to dust off the bus pass methinks! Thank you for fluttering by with this lovelt card. Hugs Mra A. (butterfly challenge).

Good evening Jenny,
I like your card, really pretty colours.
Sorry to hear that neither of you are allowed to drive.
I dread the thought of that we are 3 miles in either direction to get a bus ..... a long walk!!!
Hope the spine feels better soon

Hi Jenny
Beautiful card. Those mica powders look divine.
Sorry about the driving. Gosh, you need a car with a bad back then they won't let you drive as you have a bad back? How nuts is that?
Time for the kids to do the taxi bit now.
Take care chuck.

Such a pretty card Jenny, love the colours! I am so sorry neither of you are able to drive now :( Hoping the twinge in your back goes away too, hugs Carole Z X

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Jenny, I'm so sorry to read that you and Tony can no longer drive your car, it must be awful for you both, when you have relied on your own transport for so long and to have that ability taken away from you must be devastating. Let's hope you have some good news to cheer you up very soon.
On a much lighter note - your card is stunning, it is really magical and mystical, I was blown away by it !!
Huge hugs and lots and lots of love being sent to you, Jenny, from Patricia xx

So sorry to hear you are going to have to give up the car huni - it will take a bit of adjusting to sweetie. Can you kiddies/grand kids help the two of you at all?
Now this card - I thought it was a canvas - and I L.O.V.E. I.T. Funnily enough I have been using that stamp the last couple of days and now you have inspired me to go and have a play with it again! I hope you have a very lovely weekend Karen x

I just love this with all the different shimmery colours. So sorry you've been feeling down, it must be hard to adjust to being without a car. xxx

Mary said...

Jenny, your card is lovely and I am happy that you shared your card. As for the driving. Not being able to drive is really serious for we people slightly over 25....I hope you adjust easily and find this transition not too painful. speaking of on the spine. I hope it is feeling better and soon. Hang in there.....

Sorry to hear you have to give up the car Jenny . . . what a blow. Mind you, they are sooo expensive to run now . . . I sincerely hope there's some public transport close by for you. And now you can "treat" yourself to having your shopping delivered! xxx

Beautiful card . . . very magical. xxx
