It's Buttons and Bows at Anything Goes..


Hi Ladies

See my poetry in the title?? LOL!  It's time again for another challenge at Anything Goes... and this time the challenge is all about Buttons and Bows...  so as I have a drawer full of ribbon to tie in bows, and another drawer full of buttons collected over years... I enjoyed doing this card... though think I now have dots before my eyes!  When I took a peek at my recent cards...  LOTS have dots!!  (see?  poetry again.... haha)

Card Recipe:
  • Image - Be My Sunshine from Tiddlyinks
  • Dies - Floral Oval Nestie, Large Ovals
  • DP - Kaisercraft Marigold Collection - Maple
  • Copics - Dress and Hat: BG10, BG 72 and a touch of BG93
  • Seam Binding, Buttons, Twine and Glitter from stash (yes it does have glitter but not obvious for once..!)
  • Cosmic Shimmer White Pearl PVA (for dots around the image)
  • Edge Distressed with Versamagic Aqua Mist
Please pop over to the Anything Goes Challenge Blog where you will meet some lovely new DT members... and also see more inspiration from my fab teamies!  Also don't forget to visit the Craft Den where you will find lots of crafty goodies for sale.

Can I just say a big welcome to my new followers too...  lovely to have you in my little bit of blogland.. hope you like what you see and do leave me a comment if you do - they are appreciated so much and often make a dark day brighter!  And look....  I only have a few to go before I reach the magic 200!!!  Small steps as they say..

Big hugs and happy crafting

  10. Hi Christine, thank you for your lovely comment and for missing me. Since 2nd Jan I have been suffering with an excrutiatingly painful frozen shoulder and a distinct lack of concentration. Hopefully I will be back Asap and then begins all the catching up! I have managed to finally catch up on DC and hope to be back on my blog before long.
    What a lot of gorgeous cards since I was last here :o)
