#27 Butterflies + C is for Corners.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #26 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. 

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.



Kitty
(a joint Winner of #24)

Kitty has chosen the following letter for you.

#27 Butterfly/ies + C is for Corners.

You may interpret  this theme in any way you like
 just so long as  I can see a decorated corner/s
plus your butterfly's on your project.

KT Fit Kitty
Hi, I’m Kitty and I am excited and honoured to be a Guest Designer at the Butterfly Challenge!  I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I just turned 50 last year. I am no longer able to work so I spend my time making cards!  I definitely craft on a budget!  I started my blog in June 2013, after being invited to join a design team. My card-making style would be considered “cute” and my favourite subjects are cats, mainly due to my three beautiful kitties, Honeydew, Kiwi, and Snowie. But there are no cats on my cards today – just butterflies – another favourite subject of mine!  In case you’re wondering how I chose my blog name, KT are my initials, Kitty is a nickname, and Fit Kitty is my user name on a fitness web site I used to frequent.  Since I was already set up with the name Fit Kitty on Google and Gmail, I decided to stick with it. It would make me so happy if you would stop by my blog for a visit:  http://ktdesigns2013.blogspot.ca/.  Thank you, Mrs. A, for inviting me to be your Guest Designer!  Wishing you and your followers a joyful day!

You are in for a treat today as Kitty has made not 1 but 2 cards
and this 1st one is a real think outside of the box idea for the theme.
Can you see the Rhine stones  corner.
The corner doesn't have to be in the corner
 of the card for the the theme to work!
I love this idea Kitty.

Kitty's  2nd card is this aperture butterfly
off the card in the corner.
I'm not sure if design papers or washi tape has been used 
or both to create the background. You will need to visit 
Kitty's blog to see the full details of how it was made.

Thank you Kitty  for being my Guest Designer
for #27.

Please take your Guest Designer badge

I have chosen to use a die cut for my corner piece.

Andree Clark
(Winner of #23)

Andree has chosen the following letter for you.

#26 Butterfly/ies + P is for Patterned Paper.

Design of paper can be any pattern you like
and you are free to use other embellishments as well.

Hello, my name is Andree and I live in Maidstone in the UK and work in a local school office and so lots of my school holidays get spent in my craft room.
I am married and have two wonderful children in their early twenties which makes me feel really old.
I’ve been making cards for the last 10 years and I love both digi and rubber stamps and colouring with  Promarkers.  I also have a bit of an addiction to pretty papers-like most crafters I have far more than I could ever use but just can’t seem to help myself.
I started my blog ‘Aloha Cards’ a few years ago mainly to keep a track of the cards I was making  but then I discovered so many other wonderful blogs and challenge blogs and I now have lots of crafty blog friends.
My husband made me a craft shed in the garden which was lovely but a bit cold and lonely in the winter. My daughter has recently left home so I have taken over her bedroom with my craft stash and I am loving being able to craft in the house now.
I’d like to thank Mrs A for this opportunity to be her guest designer for this challenge, and I’m very proud to take part.

Here is Andree's card.


Isn't it georgeous!
 I love all those different papers and the way
they have all been stacked on the card.
I keep seeing something different every time I look. 

You will find all the details on Andree's blog  Here


Thank you Andree  for being my Guest Designer
