Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.
Winners results for #53 are in the post below.
Thankyou all so much for playing along.
We have started a brand new set of letters and themes.
I've introduced a new mix into the challenge too!!
Each challenge will be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
Along with this letter will be a corresponding colour.
You may choose to use just the letter /theme + butterfly
or use the colour + butterfly.
If you make your project
using both the letter and the colour + butterfly
you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win
an additional prize.
So that's 2 chances to win on each challenge.
My Guest Designers
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme.
They will also be commenting on your entries.
I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer
“Hi my name is Barb Williams. I am absolutely delighted to have been invited by Mrs A to be Guest Presenter for her Butterfly challenge this month. I chose ‘R’ for the May challenge and have made a card and a plaque to share with you.
I live in a small village in Northamptonshire with my husband. We are both very keen on our hobbies and I am lucky to be able to spend some time most days doing some crafting.
When I was a little girl my Nan taught me to embroider and my Mum taught me to knit and I have crafted for most of my life. I have tried a number of hobbies including making metal pictures, cross stitch and I was a china painter for about ten years. One day a friend asked me if I would go with her to a new card making club in the village hall. She only went a few times but \i remember well that on the second visit we were shown iris folding and I was hooked. That was about ten years ago.
As most of my cards go to charity I like to use different styles and techniques. I make between 60 and 80 cards each month so am able to make cards for many occasions.
I really look forward to seeing what you make for the challenge this time”
Barb has chosen
#54 Butterflies + R is for Recycle
with the additional option of R is for the colour Ruby Red.
So I would like to see something recycled on your project
You are in for a treat today.
Just look at what Barb has made.
You are not going to believe what this Plaque
has been made from!!!
" The flowers on the plaque were die cut from offcuts of the underlay of the carpet we had laid last year. I also used pieces of cardboard box and a piece of string."
That really is thinking outside of the nbox.
"The butterfly on the card was die cut from a piece of the same cardboard box. The box was actually red and the butterfly was cut from a piece that had some pattern on it. I just coloured the body with black sharpie pen and covered it all with glossy accents."
These are both brilliant!!
Please be sure to visit Barb on her blog
and read all about them.
