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 part of blog land, all my
very talented friends, and visitors.

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.

Phew I think I have just made it for the Butterfly
Challenge, with about 3 or 4 hours to spare.
This fortnights theme was to use 3 patterned papers.
So here is what I have created for it.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The butterfly paper is from a DCWV pad called
The Butterfly Garden, and the other 2 are from
Hot off the Press.
I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut out the patterned circles, butterfly border, butterfly, and my corners.
I am still on a big learning curve with it, so just
basic stuff at the mo. 
I used Rusty Hinge DI to colour my border, and
the corners.

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

I would like to enter this into the following

What a pretty, feminine card this is!

I'm just getting my hands on a Scan N Cut (on a trial basis) from a firend who can't get on with it, so she very helpfully suggested I borrow it, try it out to see if I like it and then maybe buy it from her if I do. She's lovely, but doesn't have as much patience as a lot of us and if it doesn't do what she wants 'right out of the box', she gives up. I have owned other electronic cutters in the past (I must admit, it is a steep learning curve, but worth it if you persevere). I even owned a website where I used to design cutting files for others, but I enjoy card making as a pure hobby now!
