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.

It's very miserable in my part of Kent today all grey, and raining, and cold as well.
Won't be long till the leaves start falling of the trees.
My, summer came, and went in a flash or that's what it seems like or is it because we had a lovely June, and not such a nice July, and August.

Gosh I have managed to make a card for the Butterfly Challenge  as I think I may have missed a couple of the challenges.
 This is a anniversary card I made for my youngest Son and his wife.


This is a 8"x8" size card.
The heart paper came from a paper pad I bought at B&M for the grand price of £2.49.
The white card I embossed with the Sue Wilson's Heart Lattice embossing folder.
Added some ribbon and string bling.
The doily die, and the bow, and hearts die are cheap Chinese ones.
Silhouette butterfly dies are SB.
 Stamped the sentiment with Faded Jeans DI.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Fabulous card, Jenny, a gorgeous design. I love how you've split the doily die cut in two, with the different colours, it's very effective. xx
