Step Up.

The phone line is as dead as a dodo but we do have a very intermittent connection for the internet which only needs one line in  to be working whereas the phone line needs two lines into the house. Have managed to get the Butterfly winners post and the New challenge up but it is very slow going with the internet falling over every few minutes. . Am working when I can from my Ipad  (can't load pictures from there though )with a new sim in it so I have 12G to keep me going until B.T.  can get out to fix the fault.
So whilst I have a green light here are my Inspiration cards for the New Butterfly Challenge which is #119 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with C for Centre Step Card.

Cerise/Cadet Blue/Champagne/Circles/Candi/ Butterflies.

1st card uses 
CentreStep /Cerise/Cadet Blue/Champagne/Butterfly

 You will find  detailed instructions on how to make each of the Step cards over on the Butterfly blog under the Card Shapes tab at the top of the page under the banner heading .  This one uses 12" x  6" card folded in half to make a 6"sq. card. The digi image is the new freebie image over on the Stamplorations blog and is called Rose Blooms and Coffee.  Coloured using my Promarkers/Graph'it pens + a silver gel pen. The silver stickers are from my stash.  Butterfly is punched from white card using my SU punch and then coloured in Cerise marker. Gems also from my stash.
Entering this card into the following challenges:
STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything goes challenge

2nd card uses 
CentreStep /Cerise/Circles/Candi /Butterfly

 Centre Step Card  using card stock from The Works Design Pad 'Unique Stories' cut to 11" x 6". Circle die cut is by Spellbinders called  'Butterflies Circles'. Butterfly die cut  in the centre is from Precious Marieke  Fantstic Flowers  Butterflies. Centre die cut raised up on 3D pads for definition.  Sentiment is a foil sticker from my stash along with the Candi which has also been raised up with 3D pads.

Third Card uses
CentreStep /Cerise/Champagne/Circles/Candi /Butterfly

This card shape is the Inverted Centre Step Card and you can find the instructions for making it under the Card Shapes tag on the Butterfly blog.  I have used a digi  image by A Day for Daisies called Tiny Fashionable Present and coloured with my Promarkers. Silver candi and silver sentiment sticker from my stash. The tiny butterflies are a punch by tonic studios.
Hope you will be able to come and  join in.

My Craft room makeover is nearly complete but the phone line fiasco has now taken precedence over everything else so whilst I have taken photos of the completed room I will not upload until Internet is back up and working trouble free!!

Oooh, these are all gorgeous, Mrs. A! Now this is a card style I can make, although it's been a while and I think I've only ever made 2 or 3! I will be planning to play along for sure! I must say I'm really enjoying your new challenges - you're taking me outside my comfort zone and I'm enjoying the challenge of it! By the way, I used one of the stamps you sent in the Santa sack on my blog today - thank you!!!

I just spent a week and many hours on the phone and one actual visit to the provider store to get everything worked out so I feel your pain. And what a pain it is! I hope yours is sorted out soon. I love step cards and these are so pretty. Your teacup is lovely with the touches of silver and I do love the butterfly. It looks like the butterfly is resting on a while plate. The dress on the last card is one I see all the time on the stars on TV.
