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 all my very talented
friends, and visitors.
Had a great  day baking with my grandchildren.
Hannah made chocolate butterfly cakes, and 
Dylan made chocolate cake with yummy 
frosting all over.
Was so tired when I got home though.
Hannah is great because she loves to wash the dishes afterwards,but there is a lot of cleaning 
up afterwards, as they are not too careful when
first stirring in the powder parts of the ingredients.

After a well earned rest I realized I hadn't joined
the Butterfly Challenge this fortnight, and it is
due to expire later today, so I quickly threw this
one together.
Now the theme this fortnight is T for Talisman,
and I was finding this quite difficult to think
of a card in which to use one.

This is a 6"x6" size card. 
The image of the Dream Catcher is a freebie off
the internet.
I added some black gems, and some coloured 
ones to it.
I inked the edges or the card and the die cuts
with Peacock Feathers DI.
I used some of my snippets for the die cuts, and
the word dream, so I'm off to join the girls in 
the playground with this.

Thank you for your visit, and time.
I very much appreciate it.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

Morning Jenny, I love your phrase, 'I just threw this together' haha, with this challenge theme, I would have taken days to think of what to do, and you just came up with this fantastic card, I looooooooove it !!
The mind boggles at the sight that must have been in front of you after your Grandchildren had finished their baking hahaha, lucky that your Granddaughter likes washing up eh. No wonder you were tired when you got home, and then you produced this fabulous card, you are a clever girlie.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Wonderful card Jenny - I love how the clip 'suspends' the Dreamcatcher, which is a real beauty! Off to search the internet now to see if I can find it - I could be some time :)
