Buttons & Bows

Morning all! Hope you had a good weekend.  Where is August disappearing to? I can hardly believe that we are at the start of another week and a new challenge at

The Cutie Pie Challenge

This time our theme is buttons and bows and I used Rosie as my inspiration, coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers.

The perfect papers came from Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl pad and the buttons and ribbon from my stash, the material is a scrap that I found in my sewing basket.

Hi Sarah,

Literally just back from hols with blogland withdrawal symptoms so quickly popping round my fav blogs to say hello and will be back during the week.

Oh I just love the theme on this pretty sunny card. I used to sew & quilt (translate: buy stuff! not finish stuff) in another lifetime - pre-stamping. So of course I like anything on that theme. The button paper is so perfect with this sewing sweetie. Ditto the tape measure trims and buttons. A delightful card, and sure to bring a big smile to some lucky person. TFS & Hugs. Happy upcoming week. Hope that your weather is nicer now.
