#43 Butterflies + Q is for Quadruple

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #42  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. 


There are just 2 letters left for my Guest Designers 
to choose from for this current run. 

Please give a warm welcome to my next Guest Designer.
Tina Z.  ( winner of #39)



Hi. I am Tina and I live in Slovenia, a country well known for its stunning nature. I have been married to my high school sweetheart and we have a 5 year old daughter and two sons (4 and 1,5 year old). I started card making in 2010 when my husband bought me a green Cuttlebug J.  I didn't know a hobby could be so addictive … So, in April this year I created my blog to share my love of crafting and to enter challenges, which inspire my  crafting.
Both decisions – to start crafting and to start blogging  - are among the best in my life, it is so inspiring. I don’t have any specific ‘crafter style’,  I just love playing with papers and trying different styles and techniques, e.g. CAS, vintage, bokeh, smooshing, water coloring …
You can find more on my blog (http://www.treebug.org/). The name incorporates my passion for environment (»tree«) and card making (»bug« is short for my green Cuttlebug)
I am so happy to be a Guest Designer at Butterfly challenge – butterfly dies were among the first dies I bought. Thank you Mrs A.!

Have a great day and I look forward to seeing your Butterfly + Quadruple creations!
