#29 Butterflies + L is for Lace.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #28 are in the post below

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 a chosen letter.
The twist is that my Guest Designers
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme.
They will also be commenting on your entries. 

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.

(a joint Winner of #24)

Liz has chosen the following letter for you.

#29 Butterfly/ies + L is for Lace.

You may interpret  this theme in any way you like
Lace may be Real or Faux 
(ie paper punched  lace border)
 plus your butterfly's on your project.

I was very honoured to be asked to be a Butterfly Challenge Guest Designer for challenge #29.  I live in the West of England with my hubby, Alan.  We celebrated 40 years of marriage last September – where do the years go?!  I retired from teaching full time in a local Infant School nearly four years ago and now just work occasionally as a supply teacher. I still run an after school scrapbooking/card making club with a friend for six and seven year olds in the school where I used to teach. We started the club about ten years ago and we have as much fun as the children! Although I’ve always enjoyed trying new crafts, card making is what I enjoy most.  Many years ago, I visited a local craft fair where I saw a Lacé template being used to make cards.   From then on, I was hooked!  My favourite style is CAS and I particularly like to use embossing folders, stamps, dies and punches……….. although sometimes I make myself go out of my comfort zone and get really inky! I'm looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations for challenge #29.
Here is Liz's card.

I love the pink  and the gorgeous Spring fold design
perfectly suits the large butterfly.
A super card. 
Please pop over to Liz's blog 
to see how this card was made
and where the lace came from! 

Thank you Liz  for being my Guest Designer
for #29.

Please take your Guest Designer badge
from the side bar.

Well done to Liz for being Guest Designer again. I may not be able to join in this week as I'm going to be away for most of the next fortnight.

Gorgeous cards Mrs A and Liz - and such a great theme. I was relieved to read that the lace can be punched or die cut though :)
