Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #76 are in the post below. Please make sure you check back as it could be you. Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.
I'm very pleased to announce the set of themes and colours for the coming year. I have thrown the letters up in the air this time round and the mix will be that the themes and colours will not be the same letter for each challenge. I have also sorted out some new prizes too.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.

(winner of #73)


My name is Monika. I live in Kraków- in the South of Poland. I have full-time job as a librarian :) In my free time I enjoy crafting, reading books and studying foreign languages.

Monika  has chosen 

the letter F for Faux which has been teamed with J for the colour Jasmine

Stitching, marbling,buttons,metal,tarnished silver, washi tape, patina, crazed porcelain, tiles, brads,silk and glass. The colour Jasmine is a creamy yellow  and don't forget your butterfly/ies.

Thankyou to everyone who took time out of their busy Easter schedule to flutterby this past fortnight. Thankyou for continuing to play along. As the number of entries were not as many I managed to contain myself to selecting just 3 Top 3's this time but I still had a hard time choosing them.

#76 Butterflies + W is for Windows and/or the colour Rose.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #75 are in the post below. Please make sure you check back as it could be you. Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.

(Winner of #71)



Hi, Friends!  My name is Janis Woolbright and I blog at Her Peaceful Garden.  My hubby and I live in rural N. Central Idaho in the USA.  I am mom to two grown kids and grandma to one precious granddaughter.  Currently, we have 5 chickens and 17 or so cats.  (Whiskers kept jumping into my arms while my son was taking some photos of me for this bio, so I let her join me.) 
I have been crafting in some fashion since I was a kid, but started rubber stamping around 30 years ago.  That hobby mostly got put on hold while the kids were growing up and I was homeschooling.  When I took it back up, what a surprise to see the transformation papercrafting had experienced! 

I started blogging in 2014 and have really grown as a cardmaker.....learning from the projects that many of you reading this right now have shared.  My sincere thanks to you all!!  My style is pretty varied, but I like to think that two words describe my crafting:  playful and experimental.  I love making a mess with my supplies and trying new things.  :) 
Many thanks to Mrs. A for her lovely Butterfly Challenges and for inviting me to be a Guest Designer!! 


Janis  has chosen 

the letter W for Window which has been teamed with R for the colour Rose

So I would like to see a window of some description on your project. Either looking into or out from so quite a bit of scope there for you. The colour rose can be anywhere  and don't forget your butterfly/ies.


You may choose to use just the letter/theme + butterfly or use the colour +butterfly.
If you make your project using both the theme  letter and the colour +butterfly you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win an additional prize.

Here is Janis's  card for you.


Janis completely stunned me with this beautiful stained glass window.
Something  I certainly didn't think of doing.
 Please visit  Janis  on her blog Here for more details. 

Thankyou  Janis for being my Guest Designer for #76.
