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 craft loving friends,
and visitors.
I would like to welcome my newest follower,
and thank you so much for choosing to follow
me, and I do hope to see you visit as often as
you can manage it.

I can't believe it's Thursday already just where 
has most of this week gone.
I seemed to have slowed to a snails pace lately.

Well it's time to post a card for this fortnights 
Butterfly Challenge, and I was asked by my 
daughter to make her a 7 year anniversary card,
so I thought I would combine the both.
The challenge wants to see Valentines, and a 
butterfly or butterflies on your card.
So here is my entry.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I covered my white card with red card, as I 
didn't have the right size red card.
Then I cut out the trellis design on my ScaNcut.
This design I downloaded from John Bloodworth's blog the gentlemen crafter, so thank you so much
John for creating this design.
I cut out the 7 on my Cricut machine, and added 
some red stones, and some flocked hearts.

Thank you for your visit and time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following

This is amazing Jenny, your die cutting is always exquisite, and it looks like the scan 'n' cut is being useful!! I was glad to see the back of January, I just couldn't get motivated...spring will soon be here, hopefully!! xx

Hi Jenny, I know exactly what you mean, I think that someone has 'wound up' the time machine, the weeks for me just absolutely fly by, and it is so scary because it is our lives that are flying by at a rate of knots.
I'm loving how you combine your cutting machines, and your card is really beautiful, is the number 7 significant for this valentine ?
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi jenny, your card is captivating as always. I love the trellis work and it looks really beautiful carried through to both pages inside. The butterfly entices you in to the card along with the No7. Thank you for fluttering by my #23 Hugs Mrs A.

Hi Jenny, your DD is lucky to have you available to make this stunning anniversary card - that is so perfect for the Butterfly challenge. This is just so beautiful with all the intricate dies, tiny red hearts, that very special number as a gleaming embellie, and of course that sweet butterfly. Love the blazing reds with the crisp white...just what a Valentine card ought to be. And of course, as always, you finished off the insides just perfect too! TFS, Hugs & Happy Valentine Day.
