#39 Butterflies + K is for Knots.



Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #38  are in the post below

Each challenge will  be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies but with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
The twist is that my Guest Designers
will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme.

They will also be commenting on your entries. 

Only 6 letters left  now and  X ,Z
are still  amongst them but they really don't bite!

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.

A return visit from Kath  (winner of #36)





Kath says
I've always enjoyed crafting and started knitting and sewing clothes for my dolls when I was young.  Since then I've also done crewel and cross stitch embroidery, woodwork, flower arranging, cake decorating and sugarcraft, and tried a few other things along the way!

A few years ago my husband gave me a gift voucher for my birthday so I could attend a local cardmaking class – he always jokes that it’s been the most expensive birthday present he has ever given me!  I started my blog Handmade by Kath to get feedback on projects for my Certificate 
in Papercrafts and now use it for entering blog challenges.  My favourite style is CAS, although I enjoy trying different styles and techniques to get out of my comfort zone.


Kath has chosen the following letter for you. 

#39 Butterflies + K  is for knots

So any medium to make your knot is acceptable.  (ribbon, lace, cord, rope, twine etc)
along with the required Butterfly/s of course.

Here is Kath's  card for you.



I love the patchwork design kath has created and those 
2 ribbon knots placed at different angles.
Can't wait to pop over to her blog and find out which
design papers were used. 

Thank you Kath  for being my Guest Designer
for #39.

Please take your Guest Designer badge
from the side bar.

Here is my  Inspiration card.

A butterfly kite
 with knots tied in the string tail.
More info and pictures are on my blog.
