#41 Butterflies + N is for Numbers

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #40  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. 

Down to the last 4 letters now and that 
elusive X is still there.
What can it be!

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.
 Elena F.   (winner of #37)


Hello Everyone! I´m Elena F , I´m 41 and I live in the Basque Country with hubby, our 2 kids and a baby.
I work full time in the only newspaper that is published entirely in Euskera (our oldest than Latin official language) but now I´m happily to have a break.
Since I can remember, I spent time doing all kind of crafts and colouring. I also sew, knit and crochet when I can.
I think what I enjoy making the most is doing handmade gifts. Craft (specially scrapbooking) is my hobby and I love copic colouring.
I started blogging in January 2013 and you can find my work at:
(SCRAP-lanak GANBARAN; that means scrap works in my storage room).
Thank you for having me as a Guest Designer!. Thanks to all the readers / followers too for being here. Elena F.  

Elena has chosen the following letter for you. 

#41 Butterflies + N is for Numbers.

So I would like to see a number or numbers on your project.
The number could be to celebrate a Birthday (age) or an Anniversary for example.

Winners #40.

Six new players fluttered in this time .
Welcome to my Butterfly World.

E for Embossing certainly went down well.
I thought I was  home and dry earlier until
I went to run the Random Org generator
and found a host of Butterflies had 
fluttered by unbeknown to me. 
My email messages have not been arriving 
in my inbox so as I hadn't checked the blog
due to another problem on my pc I was in
a bit of a panic to make sure I looked and 
commented on all your entries. I made it 
with two minutes to spare to the witching hour. 
Phew! 

It was really  hard to choose just  3 top makes
from all the lovely entries.
Here they are in numerical order,

(A beautifully embossed butterfly in gold
on a  purple card being donated to a local centre)

(28) Tricia
(A pink card full of embossed butterflies)

(With this Easel Drawer card along with 
 a very easy tutorial to follow)

Congratulations Ladies please help yourselves to the top

Hello crafters, Vinita here from New creations! It is a great honor as a Guest Designer for the Butterfly Challenge! Thank you so much Mrs. A!  I live in Delhi (India),  a retired Kindergarten teacher, mother of two grown up children (aged 21 and 19). Drawing, crafting, use of waste material and painting have been a passion for me since childhood. I’ve been blogging since last two years and love my crafty friends that I’ve met through that hobby. I don’t really have a ‘style’,  I love playing with papers and new techniques! And Thanks again to ValeryAnne!  Big Hugs to you all and I look forward to seeing your Butterfly + Embossing projects!

Vinita has chosen the following letter for you. 

#40 Butterflies + E is for Embossing
