Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #60  are in the post below.
Please make sure you check as it could be you.
Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been quite a few!

Thankyou all so much for playing along. 

We are over half way through
the new set of letters and themes.
I've introduced  a new mix into the challenge too!!

 Each challenge will be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies  with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
Along with this letter will be a corresponding  colour.

You may choose to use just the letter /theme + butterfly
or use the colour + butterfly.
If you make your project 
using both the letter and the colour + butterfly
you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win 
an additional prize.
So that's 2 chances to win  on each challenge.  

Just me again this challenge.
Guest Designers will be back on the next one.


This is what I have chosen for you.
#61  Butterflies + K  is for Kraft card
with the additional option of  K is for Kaleidoscope.

Kaleidoscope - An optical instrument usually a cylinder
with mirrors containing loose, coloured small  ojects such as glass.
The viewer looks into one end and the light entering the other
end creates a colourful pattern.

So I would like to see  kraft card  used 
on your  project
along with your Butterfly/ies of course.
The optional colour being use lots of  different colours
 on your project.

Here are my inspiration cards for you.

I have used A Hunkdory image
on each one to show the use of colour.

I knew it wa s a bad idea to let him loose on my blog!)

#60 Butterflies +V is for Vases and/or Vanilla.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge.

Winners results for #59  are in the post below.
Please make sure you check as it could be you.
Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been quite a few!

Thankyou all so much for playing along. 

We are over  half way through
the new set of letters and themes.
I've introduced  a new mix into the challenge too!!

 Each challenge will be a different letter of the Alphabet.
It will always be Butterflies  with the addition
of an item/theme beginning with a chosen letter.
Along with this letter will be a corresponding  colour.

You may choose to use just the letter /theme + butterfly
or use the colour + butterfly.
If you make your project 
using both the letter and the colour + butterfly
you will be eligible for going into a second draw to win 
an additional prize.
So that's 2 chances to win  on each challenge.  

I have no Guest Designers for the next two challenges
as the prizes remained unclaimed on two challenges.
If you do not check back you can also miss out on 
being asked to be a Guest Designer.

So it's just me today but I have made an extra card to show.

This is what I have chosen for you.

#60  Butterflies + V is for Vases
with the additional option of  V is for the colour Vanilla.

So I would like to see  a vase of some description
on your  project
along with your Butterfly/ies of course.

Now you'd think  that as  I set the challenges
that I'd be well prepared each time.
Truth is I go through the alphabet at the beginning
of the year and set all the themes/colours
and then promptly forget about them until
my Guest Designer chooses her letter.
So when I picked  V out  of the bag I went 
into panic mode.  Did I actually have 
any vases in my stash? Yes surprisingly
I did and I'm hoping that when you have 
a look through your stash you will have some too.

Here are my  inspiration cards for you.

Using a  Penny Black Stickeroos.


Using  a LOTV Art pad  pre coloured image..


Using a  pre coloured image by Hunkydory.


Please pop over to my blog for more detailed info.

(You may well find a Monkey in residence over there
but I have managed to sneak back into the craft room
and uploaded a post when he wasn't looking. )


The Winner may choose one item from the following prizes.

Hessian goody bag
containing either

Green selection


or
Pink selection




or 
$10 gift certificate from




The additional prize available if
using both  Vases  and the colour Vanilla
+your butterfly
is 

Sheena Douglas
Monarch Butterfly stamp.
