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.
Sorry I have been missing for a few days, but it's half term, and Nanny to the rescue for child minding, and we did our usual baking too.
I must admit they are getting so good at it, and they take after someone. LOL.

Well last night I made a card for the Butterfly Challenge.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
Now recently I was very tempted, and bought the Aqua Spectrum Pens, which I have been wanting for ages.
So all this blue is done with those, but beware use gloves or you get blue hands for a few days.
I made the background paper with them, and then stamped all over it with them and my stamp.
I cut out a few flowers, and decoupaged them.
The butterfly die I won on the Butterfly Challenge isn't it pretty.
Coloured my ribbon also with the ink left over from making the paper.
The lace and the die cuts are my snippets.
So I'm off to the playground with this to see what antics everyone is up to while our lovely Miss Di, and Parsnip have a rest for this week.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Erika said...

Ooooo Jenny what were you baking? I like baking but I like eating more!
If only cake was good for you. I wish.
I love your blue card, the lace is yummy and the butterfly is beautiful. I haven't got any of these markers yet. I do think with water colour pens, pencils, Distress markers and copics that I really should get any other alternatives. I girl can have too much!

Have a super weekend, hugs Erika. x
