#113 Spin The Wheel with the Letter X

All the Butterflies are safely cocooned away but will be back out to play on 2nd January. In the meantime as usual the Fairies , Gnomes, Pixies and Elves have come along for the next month.
This challenge will run for 4 weeks.
Here is the Xmas wheel for you.

There are no rules for this challenge other than your card must contain either a Fairy, Pixie, Elf or Gnome for you to play along.
 The wheel is just there for your inspiration. 
You can choose to make either a card with a christmas theme or if your fed up with 'christmas' then you can make a general card . 
Challenge will run till 31st December .

The prize on offer this time is the following  fairy stamp.


Crafter's Companion 
'Summer Fairy'


There will also be special spot  the Santa Sacks (filled with goodies)
to be won during the course of the month. 
I have made 4 up and run Random Org for the numbers 1 -50 
As soon as the first number (selected) is reached with your entries 
I will publish the winner here so keep checking back during the month. 
Santa sacks must be claimed within 7 days.
(In the event of there being more than 50 entries I will add more Santa Sacks and re run 
Random Org with the extra numbers.)

So have fun.

Here are my inspiration cards for you.

The first card is a Non Christmas Theme using Fairies. 


Second card is a Christmas Theme using Elves.

#112 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter J.

Welcome back to the Butterfly Challenge. Thank you all for playing along with the last challenge.  Winners results for #111 are published in the post below. Make sure you check back as it could be you. Can I please ask that  Winners do acknowledge their prize in the comments on the Winners post as well as emailing their details to me. This way I will know to expect an email.  Please state if you are only playing for fun so that it gives someone else the chance to win.  Challenge is for 2 weeks. 
This is the last Butterfly challenge for the year but the  Butterflies will be back on 2nd January 2019. As in previous yrs the Gnomes and Fairies will be taking over the challenge for the month of December.


Come on in.

Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will still be a letter of the Alphabet but there will now be a choice of 3 Colours and 3 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
You must use your butterfly/ies on your creation, 
then you can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel  to be entered  for the 1st Prize.
If you use a Butterfly + a Theme + a Colour from the wheel then 
you  will  be entered into the 2nd Prize. 
Please state in your post which part of the wheel you are using to play with.
New for this Yr.
If you manage to use all 7 elements of the wheel then you will be entered into a 3rd Prize.

So lets get started.
The wheel for this challenge is

#112 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the letter J. 



Jade/Jazzberry Jam/Jasmine/Jewels/Jute/Joint/Butterfly.
 I have used  Wikipedia's  excellent site for obtaining most of the colours chosen for the wheels. I then went through all my Promarkers, Marvey le PlumeII, Graph'it and Spectrum Noir pens to find the nearest colour match for me to use.
Yes , Jazzberry Jam really does exist as a colour. 
The definition for joint is: the place where two or more things join, a hinge, a seam, to fit closely together. (Lets see what your imagination can come up with).


Here is my inspiration for you.
My first card uses all seven elements of the wheel.


Second card uses Jasmine/Jute/Butterfly.
