I really *shouldn't* be blogging right now, but the mountain of laundry can wait another moment or two right?
Besides, this week's MFC Challenge for My Favorite Things is to use one of MY favorite things, and that's buttons.
Christina loves them too, in fact, the even suggested that some that we saw when shopping at CHA were good enough to EAT. Now, I love buttons and all, but I think think they might be high on cute and low on taste...Be sure to check out her super sweet sample with this same paper, but a different stamp set on her blog
In any case, grab your buttons ladies and get creative! This set is Funky Flowers for MFT Presents by Sara Williams. Sara his my very sweet friend and blog designer! ((hugs)) Sara!!
I stamped the vase to patterned paper and stamped one of the flower blossoms twice. As you can see, I finally got my Janome back into working order (I think I sewed through adhesive one too many times, and had the bobbin in incorrectly....sigh.)
All the papers here are Basic Grey Lemonade collection and I even used one of the solid distressed papers for my main panel. It makes for a coordinated look to the whole finished piece and I just looove it. Oh rude, I don't like to be the pat yourself on the back sort of girl, but I had fun with this card!
My buttoned up element is that I used a button from MFT's Chocolate Kiss collection as my flower center, threaded with linen thread (of course, I no likey the naked buttons....)
You may recognize the sketch, it is this week's sketch from Splitcoast Stampers. Of course, I had to find a "bow-tunity" and used my wide width striped ribbon for a floppy bow. So much for a short post, but gee, look the laundry is waiting patiently for me after all.
Have a GREAT day!!
