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.

May I welcome my 2 newest followers, and thank you so much for choosing to follow me.
I do hope you can visit as often as your time allows.

I do hope you had a good weekend, and the weather was lovely where ever you may live.

Today I have a card that I made for the Butterfly Challenge.
Just made this challenge with a day or so to spare again.
First of all I thought I didn't have any mint coloured card, but one night when I couldn't sleep with my RLS it came to me that I did have some Topsy Turvey card that had mint on the one side woo hoo.

This card was made with the Tattered Lace Broderie Anglaise Die I won on the Allsorts challenge recently.
I had to cut out the largest die in the set a few times to make the card a bit more sturdy.
The butterfly is a spellbinders one, and the flowers and foliage are Tattered Lace Mini Dies.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

This is sensational, Jenny! It's a beauty, perfect for Mrs. A. That mint color makes me hungry for mint ice cream, so you've paid me back for giving you a pear craving, lol! (I think that die would make a stunning Easter card, too!!) I hope your RLS calms down so you can get some good sleep for many nights. Big Hugs, Darnell

This is beautiful Jenny. I don't think I have seen an oval done as an easel card before. It's a brilliant design and I love your mint design. Thank you for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

Good for you that RLS paid off in this fashion! Brilliant ideas come when you can't sleep. You've created a beautiful faberge egg look. Even down to the gorgeous jewels you've tucked around. This easel shape truly does look like the eggs and the way they open. The greenery & white flowers with the jewel centers...beautiful! This must be one of your very best & that's saying a lot!Hugs

Hi Jenny
Just trying to catch up. Sorry your RLS has been playing up again.
Your card is thoroughly gorgeous. The mint is a lovely colour and the design is fab. Love the fern die. May need to have a look at that one.
