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.
I would like to welcome my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you can visit as often as your time allows.

Was looking after my granddaughter yesterday as her school doesn't go back till today.
We did lots of crafty bits at my house.

Well I am just about making the
Butterfly Challenge as it's about to close in 11 hours phew.
I struggled to think of something unusual for this time around and
suddenly last night thought of this design. 

I cut the shape of this card with my
Added some Butterfly card printed off the Crafters Companion CD Cute Companions to make it a little more sturdy.
I decoupaged some of the butterflies, and added some stickles to them.
I coloured my lace with a Pro-Marker
as it was the wrong colour pink.
I used some snippets of white and pink card for my my sentiment and the die cut.
So I'm off to join in the Snippets
Playground with this. 

Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Oh how clever Jenny - and also really pretty! I was stumped this fortnight :( Partly due to feeling so poorly but the old brain couldn't come up with a number card that I'd actually use :)
