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 seem to be up to my eyes lately with family Birthday cards as it's my little Great Grandson Ewan's Birthday on Monday, and I haven't finished his card yet, and I also make one for my Daughter to give him.
Then on Tuesday it's my Daughter's fiance's Birthday too, and yes I haven't made his card yet too, but a couple of days ago I made my Butterfly Challenge one, and that was naughty of me as I should have been concentrating on the family ones first, but I do love a challenge, and the Butterfly one was a challenge this time around.

So here is my card I made.

Now the Butterfly Challenge this fortnight is the letter C, and this year there is also a shape card as one of the 7 elements.
So this time around it was centre stepper design, Mrs A always gives you lovely tutorials on her card shapes, but I am hopeless with measuring as I can't see the ruler measurements with my eye problems so a friend of mine cut me this one on her ScanNcut, and lent me the candi as I haven't any.

 I think I may have filled all 7 elements again this time.

As I used a few snippets on my card I would also like to join the
Pixies Snippets Playground with this .

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I will try and get around to commenting soon. 
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Birthdays seem to be like buses they all come at once, I know how you feel as December is my worst month.
Super shape of card and fantastic colours and really gorgeous dies. Have a lovely weekend, but seems silly to say as for us lucky people every day is a weekend.

Oh Jenny, this is absolutely beautiful! I cheat and use a die set that Liz pointed me too - otherwise no chance! I love how your butterflies look as if they're flying off the card!
