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 good morning to all my talented followers and any visitors
to my blog.
I would like to say a big welcome to my new follower Sue, and
thank you sooooo much for becoming a follower.
 THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments.
Everyone makes me soooooo Happy.

Now you know I did the Candy Draw last week,  well Elainea
still hasn't got in touch with me if she doesn't claim her Candy
by Saturday the 20th of October I will do another drawing.
So if anyone knows her please tell her it's waiting for her.

Here is my card today, I hope you like it as much as I did when
I finished it. This one I did a Happy Dance when it was finished.

Click on the photo to get a closer look.

Now the inside.

This card was made with an 8x8 card white  card.
Matted with black glitter card and then white card.
The white card I cut out the flourishes from the Spellbinders
Venetian Motifs Die.
I added some Creative Expressions swirly black pearls with 
extra gems on the end from my stash.
I cut out some flourishes in black card and added them to the 
white ones underneath my crochet flower I made.
The corners are from the Parisian Motifs, the butterflies are
from the Fanciful Flights Die.
The inside I embossed with the Doily mask and then added
some Lacey Circle cut outs, and another couple of butterflies.
I hope you like this.
Thank you so much for your visit to my blog.
I really do appreciate everyone of you taking the time to visit.
Have a wonderful crafty Tuesday.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny I totally agree with Patricia Howarth's comment. A lot of thought must have gone into this card and the inside is beautiful.
