#65 Butterflies + H is for Hoops and/or Harebell.

Welcome back to my Butterfly Challenge. Winners results for #64 are in the post below. Please make sure you check back as it could be you.  Unclaimed prizes go back into the pot and there have been a few! Thankyou all so much for continuing to play along.
We are now more than two thirds through the current set of letters and themes. A new mix has been entered 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 the 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.
My Guest Designers will choose which letter goes next and I will supply the theme and colour.

I'm delighted to introduce you to my next Guest Designer.
Please welcome

(winner of #58)


'Hello, I am Rahmat, I am very delighted to be a guest designer for the butterfly challenge today. Thank you Mrs.A.

 I am a crafter since childhood, I started with embroidery plus sewing, and then I moved onto paper crafting. Initially it was just making cards, and paper-crafts for my kids.


A friend of mine saw my cards back in 2013, and forced me to make 10 cards for her, since then a spark was ignited, and I worked my way through finding things in this crafting world, like a little Alice in the Wonderland!


It took me sometime to discover my very style, which is CAS mostly, but I do love to try out different techniques from time to time. Embroidery being my first love, I take every possible chance to add a stitch or two on my cards.


I started blogging about a bit over 2 years now, and got more and more into card making since then. I am a mother to 2 teens, a teacher by profession, but currently doing substitute teaching. Besides card making, I also enjoy photography, cooking, traveling  and I also love to give lessons for free on Indian cooking. 


Be sure to follow me on Instagram for a glimpse of all the above at @rahmat.ccc'

Ginny B
(winner of #59)


I am a wife of 42 years and a mother and grandmother, and loving every minute of it. My husband and I live with our sweet little kitty, who tells us (in no uncertain terms) when it is time to feed her! I love Jesus Christ and long to daily engage in His goodness and mercy. My passion is making beautiful handmade greeting cards. I started making them off and on several years ago, but started my blog in January of 2013. 

Every card is an experiment, trying out new techniques, new layouts new (and often unexpected) materials. Sometimes trying out new ideas leads to a technique that becomes a favorite, while sometimes it's totally a flop! But that is half the fun, isn't it--trying new things and seeing what works and what doesn't! Sometimes happy accidents are the most fun and fulfilling. What is the most fun for me is making 3-D cards which have not only color, but lots of texture; it seems that recipients of the cards love dimension. 

Valery Anne's challenge blog is always so much fun! I hope you will enjoy creating and entering this week's challenge.

Numbers 6:24-26 24 'May the Lord bless you and protect you. 25 May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. 26 May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.' NLT.

Ginny has chosen

# 64 Butterflies + C is for Checkered
with the additional option of C is for the colour  Cyan
