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 4 Great Granddaughters and 2 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 craft loving friends, and visitors.
I do hope you all had a very lovely weekend.

Didn't think I was going to be able to join one of my fave challenges I like to support, but I have just managed it with a day to go phew.
So here is what I came up with.

 This is a 8"x6" tent style card.
The papers are Cuddly Budly, and Heartfelt Creations.
Used some lace from my stash which I have had for a while.
Made the flower, and leaves and coloured them with inks.
Also made the butterflies from Martha Stewart paper clay, and the pin is one I made also.
As I hve used the metal pin, and metal  buttons I will be entering the Allsorts challenge too.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Jenny, no need to be sorry about missing a post of mine! I'm not getting my email notifications to the blogs that I follow by email, yours included, so I am missing a lot until someone comes and leaves me a comment so I can get to their blog. Makes me so frustrated that my email provider doesn't play nice! But it is what it is. So here I am to do my commenting. lol Your card is stunning! I love the color combo because these colors have always been happy colors to me. Your pin and flower are so beautiful!!! I love that ribbon (once again, love those colors) and the lace. Love the clay butterfly, buttons and bling too. I say this is a winner for sure! Hugs, Brenda

Oh my little blogging matey - this has really cheered me up - those colours are just like a breath of spring (on a cold and wet day here!). Just been reading about the butterflies and the pin that you made - so pretty! Oh and I'm glad you received the doorstop - I know it was a bit plain but you could add some of your butterflies I'm sure!!! Lots of big hugs to you Sue Pxxx
