So tweet,tweet

The  challenge this week is Button Up (use buttons) at Craft Your Passion.So it’s time to raid your button stash!If you’d like to play along please head on over for details.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s beautiful creations.

We have a fab sponsor too,Purple Panda.Us DT were lucky to receive an image and for my card I’ve used the sweet Baby and Fruitloop.They’ve been coloured with Promarkers and the edges have been inked with Distress Inks.I’ve also created a sky using a stiff bristled brush to stipple some more Distress Ink.The shape has been created with my new toy.I treated myself to a Spellbinders Grand Calibur and some Grand Nestabilities – I deserve it!!I’ve folded a Labels 4 die in half to create my base but I had to chop the tip off the bottom to get it to stand up tho’.I decided not to use any DP for a change.I had a rummage through my buttons and also managed to find some grey embroidery thread.I dug out the sentiment stamp and punched it out.It does have a border around it but because I wanted to mount it onto some card I cut it smaller.

I’m also blogging for the first time on my new computer.It was about time our Jurassic PC was put out to grass.I’m pretty impressed but it’s going to take some time getting used to methinks.I’m also missing a lot of stuff from my old one still but I’m sure I’ll get there eventually – well, I hope!!
