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 big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops by to look at my work.

Now those of you who have known me for a while might remember I used to sing in a group that entertained people in nursing homes.
Sadly that all fell through when our keyboard player passed away 2 years ago.
Well last week I went to a funeral of another of our lovely singers.
The instructions from the family were to wear something sparkly  not dark as she loved her bling and was such an outgoing person, and could sing beautifully.
So this is the card I made for the family with that in mind.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The papers are Hunkydory, and the bling butterfly image was from a freebie pad you got with the stones to make it.
Think I made a Boo, Boo, with the trail from the butterfly. 
I think it should have larger stones to smaller ones.

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

This is a beautiful card Jenny and the lady's family will so appreciate it

Don't think you made a 'boo boo' at all with the trail, you'd always see the biggest first then the smallest fading into the distance.... so well done you!

Happy crafting

You are sending her off with beautiful bling and I'm sure she is looking down and smiling. I love the paper and that butterfly is awesome. I don't think that is a boo boo, The butterfly is building up speed so the trail gets bigger. Sending hugs for the loss of your friend.
