I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

I really enjoyed my new singing group it's small but very friendly, and we hope more people will join us soon.

I was inspired by Mrs A's
post in which she posted some more inspiration for the Butterfly Challenge, and this gave me an idea for another card for the challenge.
I also have made a second card so I can join in the TWOFER CHALLENGE NO 13 over at Darnell's.
The Male Birthday Card was inspired by a card made by my friend Christine HERE

So here is what I made.

  These are 6"x6" in size.
I used lots of the Snippets left over from my last card for the Butterfly one, and no Snippets on the second one.
I think I have used all 7 elements yet again for the Butterfly one.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really love to read your wonderful comments.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter the following challenges with these.

Your birthday card is stylish and cool ... just the right touch of dark shimmer with those patterned greys ... star-ily handsome! Thanks so much for your visit and sweet words ... and for playing along with us at Twofer! Anita :)

I love the incredibly different "feel" of each of your cards, Jenny! Your shaker card is a gorgeous combination of yellow and green that exudes a spring time freshness! Your birthday card is a great combination of stars and stripes for an all-star masculine birthday! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!
