Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #90 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.
 As in previous years the Butterflies are all now safely  cocooned and it's time for  the Fairies, Gnomes ,Elves, Pixies and Hob Goblins to  come out to play for the Month of December. I also have a guest designer playing along this year too. 

I'm delighted to welcome  my returning  Guest Designer.

Who is none other than the lovely 

Tina Z.
(winner of #79)

Hi. I am Tina and I live in Slovenia, a country well known for its stunning nature. I have been married to my high school sweetheart and we have a 7 year old daughter and two younger sons (6 and 3,5 years old). I started cardmaking in 2010 when my husband bought me my green Cuttlebug and in April 2015 I created my blog to share my passion for cardmaking.
Both decisions, to start cardmaking and to start blogging,  are among the best in my life, it is so inspiring. I don’t have any specific style, I just love playing with papers and trying different styles and techniques.
You can find more on my blog ( The name incorporates my passion for environment (»tree«) and cardmaking (»bug« is short for my green friend Cuttlebug)
I am so happy to be your Guest Designer because I like all sorts of butterflies and fairies. Thank you very much.

Tina has made a beautiful fairy card to inspire you.

Please pop over to Tina's blog  for more information on how her card was made.

Thankyou  Tina for being my Guest Designer for #91.

Please take the  Guest Designer badge from the side bar.

Here are my inspiration cards for you

You can find more information on how they were made here.

I picked Jane's card as I love the lemon and grey colours and the simple but classic design.
