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?

Goth girl - Lady Raven

Only a quick post as I have to dash out in about 3 minutes..........My latest digital stamp........will edit later, I just wanted to get it online.


  1. ohoo I've just seen this image on a card somewhere! isn't it fabulous!!
    Thank you for your comments on the shaker card, sorry there's no comments in that bit, I don't know why! and thank you for the tip about mr linky too! But I wasn't getting comment boxes and some blogs backgrounds were hiding their text so I couldn't read them, weird!! Have a great day


  2. sorry! saw your card and got completely muddled up! Jo just told me about Mr Linky!! So glad you liked the shakers, I kept seeing them with what-you-call-them, holes! and the bit that you had to fold round the back so I thought the frame idea would be better and easier to do, I think there's even a picture in 'google' only it's linked to another blog that asked if they could put it on their side bar. Might have some of my shakers in the next months Cardmaking and paper craft mag, but I'm not sure!
