4 Flowers

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

I've got a card for this week's challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge, which is to use something that starts with a B.  Of course I decided on my most favorite embellie, buttons.  My card, along with 99% of the cards I make, fit the bill for this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner.  What's the challenge?  Clean and Simple.  Definitely right up my alley. I also thought the swiss dots embossing folder would work for the polka dot challenge at Crazy4Challenges.  Lastly, the challenge at Stamp Something is to use something new.  The stamp set I used hadn't seen any ink yet.  Finally, Practical Scrappers wants you to use buttons.  Woo Hoo.  I'll add a sentiment on the inside when I give the card away.

***Supplies***
Stamps:  CTMH Dainty Thoughts

Other:  Cuttlebug, PTI ribbon and buttons, CTMH waxy flax

I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday.  Thanks for the visit and love.  I'm still mourning the Bronco's loss from Sunday and the fact that they didn't make the playoffs.  They started out with such promise this season, only to fail miserably in the end.  Aaaggghhhhh.  What's a girl to do who loves sports and loves her teams?

The button flowers are terrific! Wow, you sure got a lot of challenges in on this super card, Alanna!

I'm with you on the Broncos loss on Sunday. I was in a lousy mood for a bit. I don't know what it is with those guys...they fall apart at the end these days. Do you think they'll keep Brandon Marshall or let him go finally? All the controversy can't be good for the team overall. He's a good player, no doubt, but so young and immature! I guess here's hoping next season will be more positive!

Heya girl! I just love, love, love your BUTTONS!!! I was looking through mine the other day and thought....I don't have enough! LOL, is that possible? Oh yeah, just like ribbon....never seem to have the size or color you're wanting to use...LOL

The blue on this with that white and dot-embossing is just perfect too!
