#57 Butterflies + Y is for Years and/or Yellow.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #56 are in the post below.
Please make sure you check as it could be you.
Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been quite a few!

Thankyou all so much for playing along. 

We are nearly half way through
the 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

Please Welcome 
Penny (Sunshinepen)
(Winner #52)
I am Penny better known on Blogland as Sunshinepen.  I  live in a beautiful log cabin in North Devon with my partner Dennis. I am a mum and grandma with 5 grandchildren, where does the time go?
I really enjoy entering challenges, especially where butterflies are involved and Mrs A's Challenge is just perfect. And I was over the moon to find out that I had won challenge 52.
I have always been a crafty sort of person, dabbling in watercolor paints for many years and have been a photography since the year dot. I even have a go at knitting and sewing!! 
I have made this card especially for my eldest Daughter Kathy who is 39 on 28th June so the challenge of Yellow, Years and Butterflies was just perfect for her. I hope you are inspired by my work and would love you to pop over to visit my blog 
Have fun and good luck with challenge and I look forward to visiting you to see what you make.

Hi Mrs A,
congrats to pPen on her GD.
The cards from both of you are such a wonderful inspiration.
Just had this tissue box waiting to be posted so I thought I would enter with it.
Will be back with something with years on it later.
Thank you for all your hard work involved with this wonderful challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Penny's card is so beautiful. I love that white lattice look on the side. I need birthday cards at the moment and the year of the birthday recipient is always a great idea to add to a card. I plan to enter...just need time to make a card like that!
Your cards look wonderful as well, MRs A. Love the one with all the numbers on the right! Brilliant idea.

Tanks for the message about my card, but didn't link it up as it was posted two days before your current challenge. But am hoping to get something made over the weekend, fingers allowing.

Lovely to see Pen as your GDT and super inspiration as always.

This is my first entry to the challenge but I have been visiting for several weeks. I have so many butterfly stamps that I am sure that, since I have taken the plunge, I will be entering again. Thank you.
