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.
Sorry I didn't get around to commenting on every ones blogs yesterday and the day before, but I got so tired I fell asleep while at my computer.
My sister always says I can fall asleep anywhere, just don't sleep well at night so that's my excuse, and I take blood pressure meds which make me very sleepy some days, but strangely not at night.
Hopefully you will forgive my lack of commenting, but I will try hard to catch up today, and tomorrow.

Well I can't believe it's Friday already, and time to share and older creation with ERIKA HERE.
This is all just for fun, but a delightful way to show newer followers your work before they joined you.
So here is mine for this week I made this for the butterfly challenge a few years ago.


This is a 8"x8" size card.
I made this with a Hunkydory kit I bought about 4 years ago.
I die cut the leaves, and added stickles to them, and I also die cut the butterflies and inked them with a combination of DI to give them their different colours to match the card. 

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

Never worry about commenting Jenny, This time of year is hard for everyone with holidays, more to do in the garden and general heat overload and tiredness!! I've not had a decent nights sleep for weeks!! Love the colour of this gorgeous creation and the gold touches really make it special xx

Hi Jenny, the weather doesn't help at the moment if you're feeling tired....just feel drained, so can understand you falling asleep on the computer. Beautiful card, with lovely autumnal colours. Janice xx

Oh Jenny what a beautiful oldie, a lovely autumnal colour scheme and your delicate butterflies are gorgeous. Thanks for joining me today sharing an old project, sorry my photo was small, it was taken back in the day with an old camera and didn't blow up at all well.

Hope you are not feeling as tired today. I am this week with all the running around. I'm having a quiet hour catching up before tonight's fun and games start.

Take care, hugs Erika. x

Hi Jenny
Terrific autumnal card. Lovely design as always. My meds had been making me feel worn out taking the whole dose in the morning but after asking the doctor if I could split it between am & pm I have felt better for it.
Take care.
