BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE AND SNIPPETS CHALLENGE CARD

Hi and welcome to my part of blog land, all my
very talented friends, and visitors.
I do hope you are having a great weekend, and 
the weather is lovely wherever you may live.

I have had just a wonderful lucky week, as I won
one of Sue Wilson's new dies on her blog, and 
then yesterday I won the Pink Gem Challenge.
I nearly missed both as my Internet has been playing up, one min it was on and then the next 
it was off again.
It was all to do with the router, but my provider
said there was nothing wrong with it.
This is the 2nd one we have had from our 
provider in less than a year.
Lots of probs with our provider so when our
contract is up we won't be going back with them,
as their customer service is awful.
Well that's enough of my grumbling.

Here is my entry into the Butterfly Challenge,
and the snippets playground.





This is a 6"x6" size card.
All the papers, and card used are snippets,
except for the base card.
The base card I bought from the supermarket,
and it was Dovecraft, and a bargain of £1-99
for 10 cards and envelopes.
The Birthday sentiment, and the daisies, are a
snippet left over from a Hunkydory freebie
from a craft magazine.
I added some micro beads to the center of the daisies.
The ribbon,and the butterfly button are from the works, and the other butterflies my sister sent me.

Thank you for your visit, time, and putting up
with my moaning today.
Hopefully my internet will allow me to visit
you.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following 
challenges.

Well done Matey - I'm so pleased (yes it's me blogging!!) to read of your two latest wins! I'm not surprised though 'cos you are so talented. I love this card of yours and the paper tearing is amazing, if I try it I usually go off to one side - lol!!! Sorry you are having trouble with your 'provider' some of them really do seem to be hopeless. Keeping my fingers crossed that you get it all sorted out very soon.

Big hugs to you both

Liz said...

Great card for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge, Jenny! I find it so hard to add ripped paper to a card -I think I must have a touch of OCD! Congratulations on your recent wins. xx

Jacee said...

Fabulously pretty Jenny, love the papers and the colour combo, your decoupaged flowers and butterflies look lovely, and as ever, fabulous inside too!
I had trouble with my internet too, not for the fist time recently either, had neither that nor the landline all day, good job we've got a mobile for emergency's, sometimes it make you wonder what you pay so much for!

There are lots of jagged edges there Jenny, and such pretty papers. I love the little butterflies, and I think Birthday joy is such a nice sentiment and a bit different from the usual. Well done for making such a lovely card, and congrats for your wins. Enjoy using your prizes. Kate x

MaryH said...

Oh WOW! Lucky you to have a luscious SW win! I love those dies! Can't wait to see you use it. Love this snippety card, and how wonderful Clever you made it fit into the current butterfly challenge too. This is just a happy, bright card to celebrate someone special's birthday. Also loved the ribbon treatment on the side border. Nice design touch. As usual, you make the interiors beautiful as well. TFS & have a great week. Hugs & hope the Gremlins stay out of your house!!

Mrs A. said...

Super card Jenny. Love your jagged edges and how you have decorated th insides. I can sympathise with your Internet problems. Mine has been ongoing for the past 6 weeks with no end in sight. They kep trying to tell us no fault found and then do a bit of jiggery pokery their end which works for about 36 hrs if we are lucky and then falls over again. Like you the customer servic is appalling and we are locked into an agreement. Having to resort to using my iPad so that I can at least comment. Thankyou or fluttering by# 30 hugs Mrs A.

karenlotty said...

I won too! (Sue Wilson die that is) this card is pretty I end up tearing when my craft knife should really have a new blade and think - just one more cut - and end up snagging it all! I must have a go at doing deliberate tearing
