Patchwork Butterfly

Have you seen the sneak peeks from LOTV? They are just so adorable, as is this little cutie, coloured with Promarkers of course with a touch of Sakura purple glaze on the wings. This card was for my friend's Birthday yesterday so I can now post it. The papers are Lucy Cromwell and I used an MS border punch. The Kars wooden butterfly, paper and image have all been inked with DI Dusty Concord. I used some of my favourite lace, Memory Box die cut fuchsia and butterflies and some spotted buttons tied with raffia.

Now I don't know about you but I think commenting is an important part of being on a DT and I know that some challenges get so many entries they couldn't possibly comment on them all. Also sometimes circumstances prevent people from commenting at times but there are some people who are on several DTs yet they never leave any comments and there are some challenges where none of the DT ever comment. I try to comment on my allocated numbers and also to return as many comments from my blog as I possibly can. There are also many challenges where the DT always take the time to leave a comment. What do you think about DT commenting?

As a DT member for 2 Challenge Blogs I consider it not only part of my 'job' but also a privilege to pop round people's blogs. I've met some lovely bloggers and found interesting ideas through this!

such a beautiful card Marianne. I love the cute image and the colours are so pretty.
I agree with you about DT commenting. The team that I have just joined think is is very important to let every entrant know how much we value their participation and I always try to comment back to anyone you takes the time to look at my blog too.

Hi Marianne - beautiful card and you're right about DT commenting - it is important - but it is also the less glamorous side of the 'job' that people don't necessarily think about when they sign up! But it should be done - definitely! Hugs rachel xx

What a pretty card. I love how you coloured up the teddy and the buttons, ribbon and the pretty butterfly! Your friend will treasure this card for a long time!
I think it is important to comment when you are on a DT. I know it is alot of work, but if they split the numbers up it makes it alot easier. I think it is nice to receive encouragement and I also think when I visited blogs it was truly amazing the inspiration it gave me by coming to their blogs!

really lovely card, I really look forward to any comments I may get on cards I have made, really makes my day thanks angxxxxx

Lisa said...

Hi Marianne, Aww this is such a sweet card! Love this image and pretty lilac colour combo.

As for DT commenting I agree it is important that every entry receives at least one comment from the DT. Obviously there are times when real life gets in the way and DT commenting isn't high on our list of priorities which is understandable. However, some people are on so many DT's I am sure it would be impossible to ever fulfil their commenting duties.
