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 while, but the fund raising event at my daughter's place of work was at the weekend, and since then I have been trying to catch up on my house work that I neglected, to get as much made as possible.
I also had a funeral to attend, for our keyboard player of our little singing group which is sadly no more.
I do miss it so much. 

So today I have a card made for the current Butterfly Challenge.

This is a A5 size card.
The card is some snippets of card which came with some crafting affects that belonged to my Aunt when she passed away a few years ago.
I found the free digi image of the vase on the Internet.
Coloured it in with Pro-markers. 
Then I added a Butterfly Bouquet from a Tattered Lace Die.
Inked it with Colour Cloud Rose Blush, and sprayed it with aerosol glue and glamour dusted it.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, I'm do glad you told us about your
Mum's washing. I was getting a bit concerned about Sammy insisting all her pink stuff had to be washed seperately . Hugs Norm.
