This will be my last post for today, I promise!

Oh no, not her again. Oh yes! I am back again, third time today. Some things you can't controll and this is one of them. As a guest designer for the lovely gals over at Sisterhood of Crafters I kind of need to post on the right day, don't I? Thought so, I am ever so naughty and post it fairly late not to crash in to the rest of the challenges today. To make things even "worse" I've got three cards for you for this post. Yepp, things happens when you find out things early as I did with this challenge and I had the time so here we go. Oh, before I forget, the theme over at the sisters this time is Nice and fun isn't it?


 I thought so at least. You see about a year ago did I get so many old buttons that you can't believe it from my friends over at the local cat shelter. I still try to "get rid" of some of them. That's when this "classic" was born in my mind. It's a Christmas card, very clean and simple. Just glue your buttons in the shape of a Christmas tree. Then it's up to you if you want to add more to it or now. I rarely do. I love the clean look of it. Here I have used some glitterations from Anitas to ad a little sparkel and the red DP is from Bearly Mine Designs. You find the link in my sidebar. Lots of lovely digital papers to get from Donna. A snow flake embossing board has done it's magic for the back ground as well.

Then my second card. I have used one of my absolutly favourite stamps ever. It's from Lily of the Valley and is a real treasure. The cutes thing. They have so many lovely stamps suited for boys cards and now they have a new set out. Yummi too! I have paired this little guy up with DP from Bo Bunny, Time something I believe they are called. Added some wooden buttons, some metal corners. I also stamped a few Prima stamps on the paper like the key and the text stamp to give some more life to that part of the DP.

And then my last card for this challenge. I/we where asked if we wanted to use a sponsor digi for this challenge as well. And as I had the time and didn't want to think about the pain that haunts me at the moment I thought why not? So here it comes. The image is called Butterfly garden (from 2 cute rubberstamps), and with that name there was only one option, that's right some kind of garden. I made a bunch of pin wheel flowers from dp that I got from a magazine when I started this paper crafting journey. Buttons in the middle as center points of the flowers. The backing paper is from the same old mag.

Then it was time for the image with the little cute butterfly. I printed it twice and one of them I had flipped so he has his watering can the other way. Coloured them up the same and monted the little fellow on foam cushins. The larger one I have put on a stripe of acetate so he is free hanging in front of the flowers giving them all the water they need. IRL you don't see the acetate but on my photo it got a "nice" shine to it as the sun was so bright. :) I have used some glossy accent to give a little shine to the water from the cans.

And this is what happens when you give me a challenge of buttons. I kind of went mad. I am amazed if you still are with me. Anyway, thanks for looking, and a big thank you to the sisters over at the challenge blog for having me. This challenge I will really do my best to go around and give some love to all that enters this fun challenge. Blogger seems to have a will of his own these days and I have not been able to do much commenting at all the last one and a half week. Sometimes lucky sometimes not at all. This would never happen if Blogger was a she, would it? LoL

With love n hugs for you all

Good grief Marie - slow down - I can't keep up with you!!!
Three fabulous card, I love the CAS look of the first, the monochrome image of the LOTV one is fanastic and the stamping and papers really give it a vintage feel. Your last one is inspired - the pinwheels accentuate the papers perfectly and such cut image/s.
