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 do hope you are having a great weekend.
Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate every visit, and comment.

Today I have a card I made for the Butterfly Challenge, and I also used some snippets for the underneath of the Butterfly Wings so I will be joining my playmates in the Pixie's Snippets Playground with this too.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The checkered  paper is a download from Cuddly Buddly Crafts.
Then I used some snippets of kraft card to make my base of my butterfly's wings, and used spray glue on them and then I added Cosmic Shimmer Polished Glitter in Pale Bronze colour to them.
I cut out my patterned butterfly wings with the Couture Mariposa die.
Then I snipped some flowers from the same die and used them in the corners.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny
Just trying to catch up as much as I can. Your Autum easel card is glorious and the baby card and Harry Potter are fab.
This one is so lovely with that huge butterfly.
Glad to hear your back is better and thanks for your kind comment.
Best wishes.
