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 friends, and visitors.
Sorry I have been missing for a while, but I have not been well, and trying to get my meds sorted has been a nightmare.
Hopefully they are sorted now until the next time.

My card today is for the Butterfly Challenge, and this time around it is A for aperture , and  or Apricot.
So here is my entry.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
I used some Matt Mirri for the base layer, and then some double sided colour card which has Apricot on the one side, and Peach on the other.
The aperture is a Sue Wilson Die.
The butterfly I won on a recent win on the Butterfly Challenge.
It is only the top layer, and I drew around it to make the solid base.

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

I would like to enter this into  the following challenges.

Morning Jenny, You have covered both scenario's in your Challenge with this gorgeous card, beautiful colours and lovely die-cuts etc.
Hopefully you are feeling more like your usual self now, changing meds is a tricky thing and a bit of 'trial and error' is involved with getting the balance right, hopefully they have got yours right now, fingers crossed.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
PS Did you receive the envelope of 'goodies' I sent you, hopefully you did xx
