#31 Butterflies + D is for Doily


Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #30 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

Lesley F.
(Winner of #26)

Thank you to Mrs. A for inviting me to be a Guest Designer for the challenge and I was delighted to accept.  I have been crafting all my life since a small child when I made scrapbooks and learned to knit.  I have been paper crafting for many years now and my favourites are scrapbooking and art journalling, and messy inky stuff!  Over the years I have been on several Design Teams on various challenge blogs and also ran my own one too.  I have over the last year or so got back into crocheting and knitting so as well as a craft room with a small paper mountain in it I now have yarn mountains too!  


Lesley has chosen the following letter for you.

#31 Butterfly/ies + D is for Doilies.

(ie. paper cake doily, a die cut one or a stamp ).
You may interpret  this theme in any way you like
and you are free to use any embellishments
along with your Butterfly/s.

Here is Lesley's project  for you.


A lovely  nostalgic Tag
which Lesley tells me she had 
fun getting all inky and messy for.

Kate P.
( Winner of #25)


Hi. I was delighted to be invited as Guest Designer for the Butterfly Challenge #30. I am married with five sons, seven grandchildren, five of them boys, and two great-grandsons. But since 2009, Chris and I have lived in Andalucia, S.Spain, and our family consists of three dogs and four cats, all rescued animals. I have been crafting in one way or another all my life, but since my retirement in 2007 it has become my main hobby. I started in papercraft with stamping and then was so excited to discover heat embossing! Now I love incorporating die cutting, and making my own cut-outs with my Silhouette Cameo machine. I mostly make cards for personal use, but also dabble in scrapbooking, knitting, crochet, lace-making, and also photography. I follow online tutorials to improve my skills and I love to learn about new materials and techniques on the internet, and usually try them at least once. So I am looking forward to seeing what techniques you have used for this challenge.

Kate has chosen the following letter for you.

#30 Butterfly/ies + J  is for Jagged edges.

(ie. torn papers,distressed edges using
a distressing tool/sissors).
You may interpret  this theme in any way you like
and you are free to use any embellishments
along with your Butterfly/s.
Here is Kate's card for you.



Kate has gone with torn edges around her image. 
I love the ribbon border that has been created
as a frame  and what gorgeous colours.
Please visit Kate here for full details.
