Buttons and berries

Hello everybody!
 Surely it's not Monday already...who pressed fast forward again?!!

 I'm sure with each passing year that time gets quicker or is it just that we have to cram so much more into life these days? I don't know, but one thing's for sure pondering the meaning of life on  Monday morning is NOT good!!

Now I've given you something to consider here is today's card. I had a fancy for doing something a little different and this is the result...

This is the first time I have inked this Woodware stamp. I decided to fill the "bubbles" with buttons, card candi and glitter and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I had to do some colouring afterwards though!! 

I am joining in at these challenges

Allsorts #225 - Button it (real ones & an embossed border)

If you look to the right you will see that The Cutie Pie Challenge are offering candy to our Followers.

Wishing you a good day xx

My Gran always used to say the older you get the faster time goes, so I'm with you on that theory Sarah.
