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?

Day 3 of 7.........another chance to win

Day 3 of the Whiff of Joy blog candy. Still got my fingers crossed, but I never win things like this. My participation is a definite case of hope over experience.

Still just follow the link to join in, and have fun!

Another bit of fun is to be seen on the MAC website. They have started to sell t-shirts & hoodies with text on saying things like "I'm a crafty one". Anyway, they got some of the staff to model the clothing and my ex-husband is on there looking  REALLY weird.  He actually looks much better in real life, but his excuse for the funny face and pose is that they said they had to behave like models!!
Anyway, here's the link if you fancy the clothing

but if not, just have a giggle at the picture.
