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 craft loving friends, and visitors.
Thank you so much for your visit, and time.
This evening I have a card I made for the Butterfly Challenge, and the letter is Z for Zig Zag.
So here is what I came up with instead of putting Zig Zags on the card I spotted this Zig Zag die in my drawer.
Well it's not  called a Zig Zag die it's a Spellbinders Square Swatches Die,
but the edges were Zig Zagged so I used it with some snippets to make this card.

This is just under 4"x4" in size.
I embossed the brown snippets of pearlised card, and twisted the shape to give it a different look.
The small butterflies were the C&C
club gift last month, and they are 
Tattered Lace.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments you make.
I so very much appreciate them all.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
