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?

Busy, busy coupla days.

Lots to do this week. Got my daughter's birthday on the 9th, and I haven't made her card yet.........EEK! The worst bit is, I have no idea what to do. Inspiration has vacated my brain at the worst possible point in time.
I have my Godmother visiting me tomorrow, along with my father. She is visiting him for a fortnight. Then in the afternoon, I am waiting for a man to come and fit new window latches. Since the winter I've had 3 break off. I assume it's metal fatigue, cos they were only cheap ones. Unfortunately that means I have to move my chest freezer from under the kitchen window, so he can get to it.
Thursday, as I said,  is Jo's birthday. I also have HER godmother visiting for the day, plus I have to go out with the estate surveyor to do an inspection.  This is part of my duties as an ESB (estate, Street, and block) representative. It all happens at once!
I have made one very simple card this week, (idea courtesy of Ikki's Cuttlebug Cupboard). Only made it cos I wanted to use my new die cut. Here it is

Might try to get back later today, if I get the freezer moved safely! I wish moving one thing didn't mean a whole room has to be reorganised!
