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 spent the day yesterday looking after my Grand Children as it's the summer holidays.
I will be doing this occasionally throughout the summer holidays luckily it's not every day as my DIL only works part time, and she and my Son take their holidays separately so they can look after the children, and grand parents don't have to do much.
They are so thoughtful like that.

Well onto my card for today, to enter the Butterfly Challenge before it ends tomorrow.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
Now I really struggled with this challenge as I didn't have any denim colour card so I sanded  down some Navy card to make it look more like denim.
I added a pull string white petal on a roll to make the flower, and then added a lace butterfly on top for the dimensions part.
Used a white gel pen for the edging around the top matting shape.
I do hope it looks okay to you all.

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.

I like your ingenuity to get the shade of denim just right. Top marks! Love that ribbon flower too. It really makes a centre piece for the card and the lovely lace butterfly on top. Thankyou for fluttering by and making my challenge complete. Your card will be entered twice. Hugs Mrs A.
