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, and craft loving friends.

I do hope you all having a fab weekend, and I hope our US blog friends are all safe from the weather they are having in some parts.

Today I have a card I made from a Hunkydory kit that came with one of the kits I bought a while ago.
Now there were 6 of these in the kit, and after making the first one I decided to make the rest in case I forgot how to make them later on.
Not sure what design they are, but they fold flat for postage, and are A5 in size. 

I just added some extra butterflies, and pearls so all in all a quick card to make, but effective looking.
I think I made the 6 in just under an hour.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit, and comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Kathleen said...

That is really good going Jenny, probably take me 6 hours to make one. Very pretty papers and colours and like you say very effective and folding flat is a bonus. Super make.

Well isn't this a fun fold card?!! I love the colors and images on this card and I think the fold is a unique one. I love the added butterflies too. Looks like it was a fun kit, good idea to make them all so you didn't forget how to make them at a latter date Jenny. Such destruction and devastation all over, so heartbreaking! My family down in the south made it through the hurricane thankfully as well as some crafty blogging friends, for that I am very thankful to God. Now I pray for those who lost family and friends as well as all their belongings. It just breaks my heart so see. But material things can be replaced, lives cannot, so I am thankful for the lives saved by first responders and that the first responders stayed safe. Hugs, Brenda
