About Blackbutterfly Cards
I started making cards for pleasure in 2007, and quickly found my home was becoming swamped by cards everywhere. I decided to put some of them up for sale on a webpage in an effort to recoup some of the costs of my hobby. I called the webpage Blackbutterfly Handcrafted Cards, and it can be found at http://www.blackbutterfly2007.co.uk/
I try to take my cards to a couple of table sales or craft fairs a year, but make my cards mainly for friends and family. I would love the website sales to take off, as I nowhere near cover the costs involved in this all absorbing hobby, but for me the main thing is the pleasure I have in making my cards.
Recently I have decided to expand my blog to cover my other interests too. It's a sort of substitute for going to work and chatting to people, as due to ill health I was unable to work, and since the beginning of 2014 I am officially a pensioner.
Although I'll still show my cards, I'll also be covering my other interests and how I attempt to make ends meet day by day.
In fact anything that crosses my mind will be on here, so be prepared for waffle and a wasted five minutes as you read. Make coffee and settle in, why don't you?

The Next Three Baby Cards
I finally got my camera to take something remotely useable. This is absolutely the WORST camera I've ever had. I traded in my old digital camera to Fuji, rather than get it repaired, thinking I was doing the right thing. I wish now I'd had my old one serviced. I returned this one to Fuji shortly after getting it because it was taking such awful grainy pictures, despite being a much higher resolution camera. They sent it back to say that there was nothing wrong with it, and all digital cameras bowed the sides of an image when close ups were taken! Well....fooey!...my old one didn't, and they've lost a customer now, cos next time I'll buy Canon. Anyway, Rant over....here's some more cards.
