Isn't this going to be a fun challenge. Who doesn't love buttons and bows. We would love to see what you can create with them. Our design team came up with some great cards and projects. Make sure you get a chance to visit them all and see their beautiful work. The links to their blogs are on the side of mine.
We have a fabulous sponsor this week it is Just click on the picture and it will take you to their blog and you can check out all the amazing things they sell.
For my card this week I used another of my amazing Lily Of The Valley stamps. This little guy is called Baby Blanket. I'm going to start doing more cards that I can send off here. I always seem to need baby cards, and lately all boy ones. So I created this little guy, which I'm sure will be gone soon, as they all seem to be having boys. I used my nestibilities to cut him out and used the fabulous paper line from Bella Blvd. called Skipping Stones. I added the most amazing ribbon from Nicole Heady's Paper Trey and put a button in the middle with a soother charm that I got from Stamping Bella. The buttons were just random ones I had burried in the stash. I added embroidery thread to the buttons, yellow on the blue buttons and blue on the yellow buttons. Of course he was colored with my copics.
I hope everyone has been having a safe summer, with lots of hot weather like we've been experiencing in Canada. This is the most I've used my air conditioning ever, and the most use I've ever gotten out of my pool. Usually by now the nights are so cool that the days can't heat it up enough. I couldn't have had a better summer.
