Just enough time to dash in and out to show off my latest LOTV stamp. She's such a perfect little angel!!
Got to go and put a couple of cards up elsewhere tonight, so no time to chat, really. It's been a lovely day, my son came to visit bearing gifts........a joint of meat and some veggies, so dinner tonight was on him! It was wonderful. He's just gone so I have to catch up on everything I haven't done earlier today! Please ignore the very bad faux stitching around the edge of the card. It's my first attempt and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be..............I should have known, the easiest looking techniques are always the ones with the ability to go pear shaped at the slightest opportunity!!
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?
