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 time.
I very much appreciate every visit, and comment.

I do hope everyone is feeling well, and for those that may be feeling under the weather, I am sending big hugs to help make you feel a little better.

Today I have a card I made as a thank you for a blog friend, and realized I hadn't shown it yet.
So this will fit the bill over at the Allsorts Challenge I think.

This is a 6"x 6" size card.
I heat embossed the butterfly stamp all over the card with white embossing powder, and then used colour cloud Rose Blush, and Fresh Grass inks to give the pink and green.
I didn't have a yellow ink but I had a Pan Pastel Chalk which I didn't realize would cover the white embossed image so that's a lesson I have learn't.
The big butterfly is a very old big wooden stamp, and coloured in with my Chameleon Pens.
I added some wire and beads for the antenna.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny
Lovely summery card. So pretty. Another small project.......are you running low on card lol! We're so used to seeing your 8x8s.
I've never used Pan Pastels but would have thought they would have resisted too. Does not affect the loveliness of the card though.
