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.
Thank you so much for your visit, and the wonderful comments you make.

All went well with my DH hospital appointment yesterday.
He is making good progress, but has another hospital visit on Thursday for a heart monitor.

So on to my card, for this fortnights Butterfly Challenge a bit of late entry as it finishes in 10 hours time.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I inked my background with DI, Peacock Feathers, Worn Lipstick, Milled Lavender, Cracked Pistachio.
I then stamped my pattern with Memento London Fog, and a Chloe stamp.
The butterfly is Penny Black stamp, and is also stamped with London Fog onto more card I coloured with DI.
I added some stickles to it, and some stamens for the antenna.
I used some coloured snippets of card for the die cuts, and the corners so I will be off to join the playground with this.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Jenny, so pleased that your DH is making progress. Hope things are looking up for your family & health issues. Am loving this gorgeous butterfly. Beautiful colors and love the DI shades you've used in the background. The stickles patterns on the background look like pearl embroidery. So very pretty. As always, the insides are just gorgeous too. Glad you finished in time to visit Mrs A. Good luck on the appointment too. TFS & Hugs
