# 33 Butterflies + F is for Flowers.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #32  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.

Glenda.
( Winner of #29)

Hi I’m Glenda Marklew and I am delighted to be the guest designer for this challenge.
I live in South Africa in the sunny city of Durban. I am a wife and a mother, to a furry child of the feline persuasion. My day job is that of Educator to a group of nine year old boys. It’s very noisy and extremely energetic and so my craft room is what keeps me sane.
Like so many of you I started crafting early. I made my first wearable skirt when I was 11 and I still sew. I also knit and am learning to crochet although I have a long way to go there. Both of my Grandmothers embroidered beautifully and that is where my love for embroidery was started.
I began making cards about 20 years ago now but was introduced to this particular method called “Prick and Stitch” about 8 years ago now. It’s a combination of cards making and embroidery. My two loves. I was hooked !
So that’s my story and now it’s your turn.
I can’t wait to see how you all interpret this month’s challenge.
Happy card making.


Glenda has chosen the following letter for you.

#33 Butterfly/ies + F is for flowers.
