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 and craft loving friends.

Today starts a new challenge over at
It's the B Teams turn again and the lovely Debbie is your host for this fortnights challenge, and she would like to see just Black and White on your creations please.
The challenge runs from today till Wednesday the 22nd of May, and closes at 6PM GMT.
Please visit the challenge blog to see the lovely DT creations.

Here is what I made this time around.

This is a 6"x6" size card.
The lovely black and white butterfly card was from very old crafting stash which must be at least 10years old if not more.
It came in all sorts of colours too which I have yet to use.
The lovely verse was included and the other items too.
I'm sure I purchased it from C&C.
I am finding it hard to find my mojo and concentrate on crafting, and also May has a lot of family Birthdays, and I have a wedding card and box to make for the end of the month.
So hopefully I will get around to visiting you all soon.

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