Isn't she lovely......

.....and you will soon see what I mean if you can stay awake till the end of this post.

I spent most of yesterday outside so only got round to making my card for Keryn's challenge over at the DCM blog and I only realised about an hour ago that I hadn't blogged it. Better late than never.
I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.

Papers are by K & Co, 'ric rac' is from the Paper Frills sets by Doodlebug, flowers are from a kit I bought from the Scrummy Stash Cafe, the button is by Papermania and the ribbon is from stash.

Ok so now to today's work. I am still playing catch up but think I must be almost there. The following card is on I made for DH to give to the couple whose wedding he is DJing at tonight.

The colours of their wedding was black, white and cerise and this is what I came up with.

So, onto more challenges from Just Bex

Challenge 15 - All Stitched Up

Your Challenge should you chose to accept it is to create a card or a layout using stitching...this can either be hand or machine but NO doodles!

This is a first for me. I have never ever machine stitched on a card before and it is only the second time I've used my sewing machine!

And my final one tonight is a challenge from Last month. I really wanted to do this one before we went away and printed the photo in readiness. It laid on my desk until this afternoon. I can't find the challenge it was from but I will post the page anyway!

Papers again are K & Co, ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis flowers are a mixture of Primas and Papermania and the pink pearl brad is by Papermania.

It is now past my bed time and I still need to upload my piccies onto the forum. I'm going to my mum and dad's tomorrow so please don't expect too much work wise.
