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?

Stamp Out Thieves Campaign

As some of you may have seen from Facebook, Mo Manning has been fighting to stamp out theft of her stamped images in the last week. (There is a full article written by Mo if you click the stamp out image in the right side bar)

Also some more info from here . As you can see it would really help all the artists if you could join in with this campaign.

On a happier note, (or not!), I have been unable to load images from my computer to my blog since Christmas. It would only give me the option to upload from Google online storage. I save my images on my computer and on Disk so have been completely flummoxed.................until I remembered that I was using the new version of blogger. Tried going back to the old version and HEY PRESTO!!!...........I can now upload my pictures. The only thing I have to do now of course is make some cards!!
