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.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on my recent posts.
I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.

Well another sleepless night yet again so I manged to make a card just in time for the Butterfly Challenge.
I think I have manged to use all the items on the wheel this time around especially as I haven't been able to join in this challenge for a long time.

Here is the wheel with all the elements.

My card is a 7"x5" tent style.
Sorry I didn't manage to decorate the inside, as I used lots of snippets to make this, and there wasn't enough for the inside. 
I used kraft card, some Kelly Green card, Kobi for the Kite, and ribbon for the knot, some Kobe,dark red paper, in the corner, and of course my Butterflies.
Some of the items used are items I won on one of my Butterfly Challenge wins a long time ago. 

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Wow! Incredible that you managed all seven elements when you spun the wheel Jenny. A lovely card. I sympathise over your bad night. If I had two hours (in 20 - 30 minute bursts) I would have been lucky last night. I'm not at my brightest today ... lol! Hope things improve for you soon. Hugs Christine x
