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?

A Complete Days's Crafting & Little to Show For it!..............

.................but I did have fun!

I spent the whole day playing with stamps and water colours, and ended up with one complete card. I also have 5 toppers ready to play with tomorrow, but I just had a great relaxing day!
I just love LOTV, I have a hard job choosing my favourite rubber stamp suppliers as Whiff of Joy is up there too. But lilly of the valley have more cuteness to their 'humans', and of course, money helps too & they are slightly less expensive.
