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.

Some of you may remember I used to belong to singing group which folded because our keyboard player sadly passed away.
Well today I am off to join another singing group for the first time as I have missed my singing.
I always have music on while I am crafting, and sing along with what ever I am listening too. 
Feeling a little nervous at meeting new people though.

Yesterday I made a card to join in with the Butterfly Challenge, and also Wendy our Team Leader over at MAWTT has a challenge on F/BOOK too, so that inspired me to make this card for both the challenges. 

This is a A5 size card I made from folding and A4 piece of card stock. 
Now the Butterfly Challenge has 7 elements on the wheel, and I have used them all.

I have used Amber, Almond, Apple Green, Aperture, Acetate, and Anything which is my leaves, and of course my Butterflies which Wendy our Team Leader over at MAWTT makes.
Had trouble with the Almond colour so I inked a piece of card to the colour.

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.

Brilliant card Jenny, very Spring inspired and a lovely image, love the large tulips too. Super inside.
Hope all went well with your new singing group, but if you are as good a singer as you are card makers then they will be very pleased to have you join them.
At last I have spent my voucher, the Spring PB came on pre-order at CUL and I have ordered some, will have a few weeks to wait till I get them though.

Its lovely to see flower fairies Jenny and that one is gorgeous. I love the pretty butterflies too. I hope you had a warm welcome at your new singing group and that you enjoyed it. there is something about singing that makes one feel good I think. When I was in my early twenties I belonged to a drama group and think fondly of those days xx
