Hello and a warm welcome to the next challenge.
So nice to see more new faces playing along.
Please stay and flutter for a while.
 
Winners results for #14 are in the post below.
 
The new challenge for #15 is
 
Make your Butterfly in Autumn colours.
Post script.
Di has just queried she had understood the requirements
so to clarify
I meant to put butterfly/'s on your project
so just 1 or more on your project is fine
I have 3 on mine below.
Also the butterflies can be all one colour
just so long as you pick from the range of autumn colours
that abound out in nature at this time of year.
Hugs ValeryAnne.

#14 Ugly Bug Ball.

Hello and a warm welcome
 to the next challenge.

I’m so pleased to see new faces playing along 
and several of you entering more than once.
Please stay and flutter for a while.
Winners results for #13 are in the post below.
The next challenge is a tribute to my Mum.
One of my childhood memories is of Sunday afternoons. Once the dishes were washed up from lunch Mum would settle down in the lounge and play her records (no such thing as Cd's or Cassettes in those days).  One of her favourite artists was 'Burl Ives' and I used to sing along to all of the songs. We both loved one in particular called  'The Ugly Bug Ball'. This song actually featured in a film with 'Hayley Mills' along with Burl Ives called Summer Magic (1963) and had an animation section of the film that involved all the bugs, bees, butterflies  and flying insects attending the  Annual Ball.  
I couldn't find a current copy of that song so we had ' Waltzing Matilda' (another song that Burl  sang on one of the records)  played at the end of her funeral.
The 14th challenge is 

Anyway to cut a long story short I would like
to see any type of insect on  your project.
The more the merrier but one will suffice.
As long as it has Wings it can attend The Ball.
 
I'm joined this time by 2 Guest Designers.
Please welcome
Sherryn
Winner of #11. 
Sherryn has made this really fun door hanger.

Shaz made these two quite different cards.

Please stop by Shaz's blog
as I really haven't done these cards justice  here.
 
This is my inspiration for you.
 
I have been wanting to make one of these
3D Pop-Up box cards ever since they 
arrived on the scene but never had the opportunity
until now.
 
 
You can read all the details on my  main blog here.
 
Shaz in Oz  even found  a video  clip of the film for me.
Blogging friends are just the best!!
