Hiya folks!

How y'all keepin'?? Hope all is well in your neck of the woods??

All is fine here today, well, apart from the greyness of the day.
Nothing unusual there really. Used to it being grey now. It comes as a nice surprise when we do get some sun! LOL. My veggies hate it mind you, looks like another naff harvest this year. How do the farmers manage to keep going up here with all the naff weather we have. It's no wonder food prices keep rising!!

Argh, I wasn't going to have a grumble! Ah well, whateva! LOL

Onto my card, which today is my creation for the
and this time round we are 'Cute as a Button'.
Anything cute, as long as we get to see at least one button! LOL

I chose to use my Delicious Doodles Sniffing Daisies image:

And here is the card I made with her, following an old layout sketch from Papertake Weekly.

My dp's are from an old set by Tinker & Co, Tranquility.
I have used some lace from my stash, two pieces in two colours over a brown piece of dp, with some tiny red gems on top of it. The image was coloured previously, so I just printed it out again and fussy cut some layers. I added some light blue stickles to her dress, and to the flowers.

The flowers are made using spare card from the bits box, my ne Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die, but the two small shapes rather than the bigger ones. I inked the petals, and added stickles in red on the edges and blue dots just inside. Then I put my buttons in for the centres. Some blue gems were added to the bottom of the card. They aren't in the sketch, but the card needed it!!

I also added a ribbon bow made from a valentines leftover, and attached a handmade charmy thing. This was made using bits I rescued from jewellery sales.

I hope you can join us this fortnight on the
If you use a Delicious Doodles image from now on you will get to be 'Spotlighted' on the Challenge Blog AND the Delicious Doodles Blog too!! Sounds like fun!! LOL See you there folks!
