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
Well my family arrived yesterday evening, and while I was waiting for them to arrive I managed to make a Spring Card for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge which I like to enter.
Now I had a slight mishap with my hot glue gun making this, and blistered the tip of my middle finger so typing is quite awkward for me at the mo.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The purple papers are from a Papermania pad I have had for ages.
The daffodil paper is a Cuddly Buddly download.
Flowers from my stash lacy doily is a TL Broderie Anglaise one which I won last week on the Allsorts Challenge.
Butterfly made from petals of a flower.

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

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Beautiful! this is a lovely card, Jenny. I am so sorry to hear of your poor finger though.
I have done the same and know how much it can hurt.
You have so many lovely embellishments on this card...I especially love the flower petal butterfly. that was a brilliant idea.

What fantastic colours Jenny, makes me think of crocus, those beautiful yellows and purples together! Lovely design too. Hope your poor sore finger soon heals!
Have a lovely weekend.

Hi Jenny, Wow !! fancy making this fabulous card whilst waiting for your visitors, you are so dedicated, I love it !! I, too, went 'ouch' when I read your write-up about the glue gun, it reminded me immediately of an occasion when I had hot glued a flower to put onto something, I lost control of the flower, it dropped onto my leg just above my knee, I was wearing shorts at the time, immediate reaction was to pull the flower off my leg - all the skin came too - it took for ever to heal, so I really sympathise with you.
Enjoy your time with your visitors.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
