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
friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the 
wonderful comments you make on my work.
I always appreciate your precious time spent
visiting my blog.

I do hope you all had a great weekend and the 
weather was kind to all of you.

Today I have a card I made for my youngest
Son and his wife for their Anniversary.
I needed a card for 3 challenges this week,
hence the title of my post.
I thought I would combine all the different
challenges by incorporating them all in one
card so here it is.

 I wanted to revert to an old design inside that
I used quite a few years ago.

This card is a 8"x8" size, made from PMD
white A3 card.
I used my New Sue Wilson embossing folder 
called Heart Lattice.
My new Tattered Lace paper gold and teal.
My new Tattered Lace Poppy Die.
The heart die is a Tonic Die and I used the
larger and smaller one the inside, and cut out the
front ones on some snippets card.
I stamped my sentiment onto some snippets
card with Peacock DI, and heat embossed it
with Silver Pearl embossing powder.
Added some feathers, and pearl hearts from my stash.
I do believe I have not used the pearl hearts 
before either. 
So therefore I have used 4 Nimbus items on
this card.
Of course there are some butterflies, and a sentiment on this so that meets with the 
Butterfly challenge as well.
Few I am tired after all that explaining, I do 
hope you haven't fallen asleep along the way.

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

I would like to enter this into the following
No: 13.
