#133 Spin The Wheel with X for Guess Who!

Hi There it's me Little L'Th.

All the Butterflies are safely cocooned away but will be back out to play on 1st January 2020. In the meantime I am helping out as Mrs A. is a tad under the weather with a runny cold. 
I know she was ever so pleased when I offered. Bless her she was so excited
that she couldn't get her words of gratitude out and had a nasty coughing fit.
A good glug of water did the trick but I really don't know why she was crossing herself and muttering Why Me! 

Anyway
 as usual the Fairies, Gnomes, Pixies, Elves and Imps have come along for the next month to play.

There are no rules for this challenge other than your card must contain either a Fairy, Pixie, Elf, Imp or Gnome for you to play along.
There is no limit to entries for this challenge. 
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.

There are two prizes on offer
and winners will be chosen by Random Org.


1st Prize.


Nellie Snellen 
Fairy - Tale - 9
+
 I believe in Fairies Ribbon

2nd Prize.


Nellie Snellen 
Fairy - Tale - 7
+
 I believe in Fairies Ribbon


Here are Mrs A's inspiration cards for you.

The first card is a Non Christmas Theme using Fairies. 



Second card is a Christmas Theme using a Gnome. 


You will find full details for the cards on my blog Here
.
Please be sure to read all the rules on the tab above

#132 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with P for Pop Up Card.

We are now onto the 16th letter of the alphabet which is P  and now over half way through the letters.  Winners results for #131  are 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.
  Please note that this challenge is back to it's normal 2wks.

      Come on in.
Lets Spin the Butterfly Wheel.
Each challenge will be a letter of the Alphabet with  a choice of 3 Colours and 2 Themes all beginning with the chosen letter.
New for this Yr. The 7th element of the wheel is a card shape.
(The discerning amongst you will notice that there is now an added page along the top under the Butterfly Banner called Card shapes.)
There will be a card shape for the letter being used for each challenge and I will be showing a tutorial on this page with hints and tips for making the cards. 
The card shape is not mandatory but if you do use it you will qualify for the top prize without having to combine all of the other 6 elements onto your card. You must of course use your butterfly.  The shapes will all be easy ones, just a different way to either fold or cut your basic cardbase. 

If you don't want to use the card shape then 
You can either choose a Theme or a Colour from the wheel + Butterfly  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.

So lets get started.

The wheel is
P
and 
Pop Up  Card.


Your 6 elements are:
Peach/Pear /Periwinkle/Patterned paper/Pearls +your Butterfly.

N.B.   Pear  =Lemon lime colour.
Periwinkle = Lavender Blue.

Here is my inspiration for you using:

 Pop up card/Peach/Pear/Periwinkle/Pattern paper/Pearls/Butterfly.
