Ann, I have just heard from Jo, she is not well, with a chest infection and the dreaded vertigo, still struggling with it, I thought something was wrong so hope she soon feels much better....just wondering to let Sylvio know, what do you think...

Love Jean xx

I'll try and put it on the birthday girls thread if I can find it Jean. Poor Jo. I have been out all morning so haven't had time to put your cards on the blog. I can't do it from my IPad. :-)

Thank you Jean, they are quite awkward and will get flattened in the post but once made they are effective. I have made another one using pro markers instead of pencils to colour and to disguise the 'bleeding' have coloured both sides. Same style as the flat one with backing but this time the butterflies are left in instead of being cut out.

Ann, was there other styles in the packet, I am not sure if I have sent you some of the same sort. let me know and I will put it right.... :-S

AnninGlos

AnninGlos Report 18 Feb 2014 13:46

All butterflies in the packet which was sealed Jean. But it is not a problem, It is very good of you to send any at all. :-) :-) :-)

Made two more butterfly cards this afternoon Jean. I did see that they suggest lots of other things but I have preferred to use them for cards. some for me to use and some for charity. :-)

Thanks for adding a comment to the blog Winifred, I answered you on there and gave you the web site but the cards are in a pack then you choose to fold them which way you like.
