Buttons and Bows for Crafty Sentiments Designs

Good morning all! I hope you are well and happy? I'm feeling good again - probably won't after my run since the weather's not been too brilliant - but it has to be done!!!! I'm waiting for news of whether or not I get into the Great North run this year via the ballot - I always run for charity - but its nice to not have to raise quite so much as with a guaranteed charity place.

Over at craftysentiments today there is a new challenge starting called ' Buttons and Bows'. See here for the full details and more fabulous inspiration from the design team.

I made my card using the stamp called collecting blueberries that you can get at the crafty sentiments store here.


I've been using that grand die again - 2 days in a row - its so pretty though - I love it! The cental die is also a spellbinders. My image is coloured with promarkers and I've added buttons and a bow from my stash. I've used tumbled glass to distress around the edges of the image whilst still in the die. The flowers are WOC.

I'd like to enter my card for the following challenges:

craftingforallseasons: Buttons and bows
willowsketchiechallenge - sketch
paper-craftingjourney: For a girl
pixieduststudiopixiechallenge: No squares
Jelly Parkjellyparkchallenges: Button up
fussyandfancychallenge: Circles
totallygorjuss Flowers

Thanks for popping by today - hope you have a fabulous Tuesday - and that you drop in again soon!

Big Hugs
