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.

Good morning to all you talented crafty people and visitors.
I just hope all is okay with all my crafting friends out there.
Are you managing to stay dry or have you developed web feet
THANK YOU for all your comments on my card yesterday.
I very much appreciate everyone that is made.
THANK YOU for taking the time out of your busy day to 
visit my humble little corner of blog land.

Well today is the card we just all hate to make, especially if 
it's for a friend or relative, and this one is for a relative.

Click on the photo to enlarge the image.

Now the inside.

This is a 6x6 size card.
Matted with some lovely pale green pearlised paper.
The botanical swirl design was sent to me from a lovely
blog friend. You know who you are and thank you soooooo
I put it inside the Labels One which I made into a frame.
I added some leaves that look exactly the same from the
Spellbinders Foliage Two Die.
The flower is the center of the Spellbinders Anemone Die.
I have added some Parisian Accents around the Labels 14
Die and in the corners.
Thank you again for you visit.
I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges. Anything Goes.

Good Morning Jenny,
Beautiful card just perfect for what is needed.

Sorry for the loss of your relative. Sympathy cards are more difficult to make that's for sure but you've done beautifully. The lace work and butterfly are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing this with us for The Stamping Shack challenge!

I agree Jenny, its the type of card that no one would love to do specially if its for a friend or relative. You did a very good job on this card. The time and effort you did on this card will be much appreciated. So glad you played along with us the The Stamping Shack challenge.
