#22 Butterflies + B is for Brads.

Welcome to my New look
Butterfly challenge.
With new prizes,  new badges and a new theme.
I hope you will like the new concept and play along with us.

Each challenge will be a different letter of the Alphabet .
It will  always be  Butterflies but with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with the chosen letter.
The twist is that my  Guest Designers in future weeks
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme.
They will also be commenting on your entries.
I have started the ball rolling with the first 2 challenges.

#22 Butterfly/ies + B is for Brads.

You may interpret in any way you like.
Just make sure that you have Butterfly/ies 
and Brad/s showing somewhere on your project.

Just to clarify 
The challenge is still a fortnightly one 
So #22 will close Tue 27th Jan 8pm ( GMT)

Please welcome my 1st Guest Designer for 2015

Winner of #19

I live in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. I am retired, widowed, no kids, and have a funny little dog that is "creepy" smart. I love to travel, read, and photography. I started card making in 2011 when I bought a Cricut machine. Since then I work with dies, stamps, watercolours, Copics and more. I love learning new techniques. While I can make multi media/layered cards, I tend to stick with more CAS designs.

Here is Myrna's card.

Thankyou Myrna for being my 1st Guest Designer 
for 2015.

Please take your Guest Designer Badge
from the sidebar.

(Previous Guest Designers are welcome
to take the badge as well).

Here is my inspiration for you.

A Recessed  Window Frame card.

    Great work on DT cards by Myrna and Mrs A. Well done. I may be blind but take it that it is still a fortnightly challenge?

  13. Yay, I have entered for the first time! Fabulous blog - I love it! xxx

  14. As promised, here I am again, just linked up my creation. It was harder than I thought to add the brads, since I don't work with brads that often. So that means your challenge is a hit, if it was all so easy it wouldn't be a challenge, would it ?! Well done Mrs A. loved joining in.
    Hugs Veerle
