hope your weekend has been stuffed
full of crafty time.
It's time for another challenge over at
Magnolia Down Under,
and this fortnight,
we'd like to see you use buttons on your project.
We have a $20 gift voucher from
for one lucky participant.
And here's my project.
Happpens to be the perfect time
for a button challenge to come along!!
I've used an image called Tilda with Flower Basket,
coloured in distress inks,
wings are a GlimmerMist/Stickles combo,
papers are K & Company and Basic Grey,
flowers are made with several distressed and curled
layers from an EK Success punch,
and the fabulous buttons are from
Mina's delicious blog candy that
I was lucky enough to win,
(see, told ya I'm due for a karmic cash-out...)
and I strung them with hemp, and also
the buttons in the flowers have a
touch-O-hemp as well.
I've gone around the circle and image
with my crap stitch machine and then
added the stitches with pen.
I decided, since I was lucky enough
to be crafting with Mina's buttons,
I'd use one of her sketches as well.
This is one I saw on the
Truly Scrumptious Challenge Blog,
(the link above will take you to the sketch)
and as it seems to be all too natural for me,
couldn't make the cutoff for the challenge,
so I tucked the sketch away for a rainy day.
As I like it quite a bit,
I'm thinking about doing some scrapbooking with it.
And here's a piccie of the yummy stuff:
I just love getting handmade cards.
I seriously sat and stared at her creation
for, ohhh, I don't know,
enough time for the hubby to ask if I was okay,
hahahaha, just gorgeous and the colouring is PERFECT!!
Thanks again for this bundle of fun, Mina!!
Well, I guess that means that I get to play along
with a few more challenges.
Stamp Something wants us to create
with out favorite sketch or layout,
and I LOVE this even more now that I've actually used it, lol.
Simon Says Challenge is saying
to use stitching, I entered there already, I know,
but Lorraine said I could enter again, teehee,
heya, GOOOOoooooOOOOOOooo 200!!!
I also get to play with
Roses on Paper Challenge,
they want to see some stitching.
Welp, thanks for coming by my blog.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
and can't wait to see what everyone's been creating!!
