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.

It's the 1st of the month again and time for a new challenge over at


The challenge is hosted by the lovely Tinz and she would like to see

 Bright on Dark.

The challenge runs from today till the 29th of November.

Here is a couple of cards I came up with.

The first card is a 6"x8" size and cut down from an 8"x8" card stock.

 The second card is a 5.5"x5.5" size amde out of an A4 piece of card.

I used some glitter washi tape around the edges of the black card stock and a Butterfly cut out of some card I have had for a while, it has gold edges but it doesn't show in the photo.

Coloured in with gel glitter pens. 

The second card is layers of black and coloured card stock with a Butterfly in the middle.

Thank you so much for your precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
