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 all my very talented friends,
and visitors.
Well it's the weekend yet again, and I can hear you all cheering, and saying I hope the weather is good to us.

Thank you so much for your visit I really do appreciate your time.

Today I have a card I made for the Butterfly Challenge, and it also conforms with the Nbus
Challenge that starts today on Darnell's blog.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The paper used is Back To Basics by Dovecraft
I have only used one die cut, in the inside of my 
card, all the rest are hand cut with scissors.
Now the Nbus items used are the Papers,
Ribbon, and the Corner Rhinestones. 
I hope you like my design, I came up with.
The inside view looks as if the corner of the 
front is overlapping the card, but it isn't, and I 
should have photographed it again, but I was 
too lazy to pull out my photographing box again.
So I hope you will excuse the look.

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

Morning Jenny, What an utterly fabulous design you are delighting us with today!! The symmetry of this really appeals to me and the butterflies are so pretty and break up the black and white beautifully!! The sun is out here in Dorset and I hear the lawn mower calling, so guess what I shall be doing later!! Whatever you are up to I hope it's a good day xx

Your design is outstanding, Jenny, and just perfect for Mrs. A.'s Butterfly Challenge! I love the monochrome pattern blocking that you have done! I would, however, like more information about this new-fangled tool you mentioned called "scissors!" Hahaha! Good for you and great cutting!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge!! Enjoy your Sunday!! Hugs, Darnell
