Allsorts challenge 515/516 - Butterflies,Blossoms,Bugs

Good Morning as it is coming up to Easter we are having a two week challenge and it is Brenda's turn to host and choose the theme.

She has chosen - Butterflies, Blossoms and Bugs.

We have a new sponsor for you for this challenge with a £15 voucher to spend at the ....
The Paperbox is a family owned business specialising in card, paper, envelopes and card blanks. We have just one mission, and that’s to provide a consistent, reliable source of quality craft materials. Over the years as the company has developed, we’ve outgrown multiple premises until we finally moved into our very own purpose-built factory in 2016. It’s from here that our products are carefully and responsibly sourced, cut and creased to order and lovingly packaged for delivery.

For my card, I have, once again, used a Penny Black stickeroo.

Now you can see the butterflies and you can see the blooms but if you look very closely on the large yellow flower you can see the bug. A Ladybug, I usually call them Ladybirds but on this occasion I call them Ladybugs! This was also from another  PB stickeroo.

My News.

My next DT post will be on the 18th of April, when it will be for the half way reminder post for the April challenge for Penny Black and More as a DT member.
I have been a guest designer a few times since I have been on the Allsorts team but to actually be on THE team is a total honour.
Luckily I do know quite a few members of the team as they are also members of Allsorts.
I will not tell you the panic that set in when Brenda asked me, but I did say to her this is the second time you have nearly given me a heart attack.

I would also like to say a huge thank you to all my lovely blogging friends for all your lovely cards for Chris and I on the occasion of our Golden Wedding Anniversary yesterday.

Enjoy your Easter, home or away and I hope that the Easter bunny comes hippity, hoppity, down your garden path, layden with eggs of course.

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

A really lovely post Kath and such an exciting few days for you one way and another - and apologies that I keep giving you these shocks! And of course huuuuuuge congratulations on your special anniversary yesterday, even if I did get the date all wrong and send the card in January.

A perfect card for this weeks theme and yes I see the little ladybug, thanks so much for creating such a pretty card for my theme week.

Christine L said...

Your card is beautiful Kath.. what a perfect design with the butterflies in the corners! And now BIG CONGRATULATIONS firstly on your Golden Wedding Anniversary.... and then on your fabulous new DT post!!! You'll no doubt be an asset to them as I know your love of Penny Black.

Did you get to the Dies to Die For pop up shop on Saturday at Esholt? It's a bloomin awful place to get to, but we did drop in for half an hour and a bit of a spend. Took us 55 mins to get to - only fifteen miles from us, but through Otley and Guiseley... so awful traffic.

Have a lovely Easter..
