#36 Butterflies + W is for Washi Tape.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

This challenge will run for 4 weeks to cover the
Summer holidays for you all.
Their will be two winners chosen.

Winners results for #35  are in the post below.

Two of the winners from #34 failed to claim their prizes.
Please remember to check back to see the winners.
It might just be you!

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. 

We are down to the last 10 letters now and  UXYZ
are  still amongst them but don't be shy in choosing them
as I have some lovely/unusual themes picked out for those  letters!!


Please give a warm welcome  back to my  Guest Designer.

(Kitty)
(Winner of #32)


Kitty has chosen the following letter for you.


You may interpret  this theme in any way you like
 as long as  I can see washi tape somewhere 
plus your butterfly's on your project.


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!

Here is Kitty's card for you. 


I think Kitty must be the queen of Washi Tape.
I'm sure she has a room full of it stashed away!


Please visit Kitty over on her blog for more details.

Rebecca
( Winner of #31)


Hi my name is Rebecca Billard, I am originally from Newfoundland, Canada, but currently resides in Nova Scotia, Canada with my wonderful husband. I have been paper crafting for a few years now. I love to make cards, tags, and mini albums the most, but I would like to try to learn some new techniques so that I can start journaling. I am so happy to be a Guest Designer for this challenge, it is one of my favorite challenges to play along with. I just love butterflies, and I use them a lot on my creations. Thanks Mrs. A for having me and I look forward to seeing all of your beautiful creations.

Rebecca has chosen the following letter for you.

#35 Butterfly/ies + T is for Talisman

Talisman =  a species of charm engraved on metal or stone to which wonderful effects are ascribed

so I would like to see a charm incorporated somewhere on your project along with your butterfly which could of course be the butterfly itself. 

Here is Rebecca's card for you.



Wow. Absolutely stunning. Don't you all agree!!

Veerle.
( Winner of #30)


Hi, my name is Veerle and I live in a rural part of Belgium. My native language is flemish so please forgive me for my poor english.
A friend of mine started up my blog back in 2013 and on august 29 I posted my very first blogpost. At that time i was making cards
for about 6 months. Ever since i was a child i was being busy with crafting but never into cardmaking. Not until 2013.
Immediately I was bitten by the bug and got myself a new addiction—cardmaking. In the beginning nothing much happened on my
blog, 2 posts in september, 4 posts in november etc etc until i discovered challenges, that was in july 2014 and from then everything
went fast. I won some challenges and my confidence grew a bit, i started to learn new techniques on the internet and the ball started
rolling. I am now a DT member on 3 blogs, unfortunately one is closing down on july first and i am so very proud to be the GDT for this
challenge here with Mrs. A who’s blog i really love. I am a very fortunate person because in september 2014 I was able to make
from my hobby my living I am working together with a craft store and I give a lot of classes, in fact I am almost 24/24h busy with cardmaking.
Thank you and greetings from Veerle x

Veerle has chosen the following letter for you.
