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 very talented
friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing for a while, but I have
been looking after my Grand Children in their
Easter holidays.
They have gone away this week on holiday so 
Nanny is free to blog again.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments on
my Easter cards.
I very much appreciate them all.

Today I have my entry into the Butterfly Challenge which would like to see music notes
on your card so here is mine.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The butterfly paper was printed off a Crafters
Companion CD Cute Companions Volume 1.
I decoupaged some of the butterflies I cut out
of the paper, and added some stamens for the 
antennas, and stones for the bodies.
The music notes were cut out on my ScanNcut
machine from some Snippets out of my box of 
I also sprayed the butterflies, and the music 
notes with Crafters Companion Spray and 
Sparkle Pearl Diamonds. 

Thank you again for your time spent visiting me.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

A lovely bright and beautiful card and love the embellishment but it takes all my strength to cope with one butterfly on a card lol. But that doesn't mean I can not say the card is well made and well designed.

What's not to love on this beautiful butterfly card. Clever you to be able to submit to so many of the challenges too. Glad that you were able to enjoy your grands for a bit. I'm sure you both enjoyed that so much, but bet you were a tad tired after. This is really so pretty & fresh and all those fluttering butterflies are just lovely. Love that pretty gauzy flower too. TFS & Big hugs.
