Button It!!!

Morning! I'm finally here with a little something! I love having my kids home for the holidays, but it plays havoc with my craft time. I actually didn't think I'd get a card done for this weeks challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers, but I managed to grab a few minutes to create! Unfortunately it's not one of my best efforts and time didn't allow for me to remake, but anyhow, this blog isn't about only showing my hits, it's also about my disasters (wouldn't put this card in that category, but it's defo not up there in the faves!!).

Anyway, lets get onto the challenge! This week we are sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps who have generously donated a grab bag of 3 rubber stamps as the prize. The theme is Buttons, so we want to see lots of lovely buttons on your projects. Oh and before I forget, this week is the last of our fortnightly challenges! As of next week we will be weekly, so I do hope that you will be able to join us.

So finally, onto my card..... grab your sunnies cos it's bright and bold using patterned papers which is wayyyyy outta my comfort zone!!!

Image - Cheshire Cat Illusion
Papers - Basic Grey
Tim Holtz On The Edge Alterations Sizzix Die
Glossy Accents

There's a new blog on the block!!

Just a quick heads up to let you all know that my teamie from Sweet Pea Stampers - the lovely Amy has just started a new challenge blog here. It's a chance for you to show off all of your Marianne goodies. There's some fab candy up for grabs and a few DT positions, so why not go check it out. Here's the full deets taken from the blog....

"Do you love Marianne Designs Die cuts,stamps and other goodies? Well if you do this is the challenge for you :D
This is the first challenge where you can use any of your Marianne Designs goods to enter. There will be a challenge every month, starting in August, and the chance to win a great Marianne designs prize from one of our Marianne Designs sellers and straight from Marianne herself.

I need your help to spread the word and as a thank you there is the chance to win some candy as donated by the best Marianne Designs seller I know Bunny Zoe.

All you need to do to stand a chance of winning this lot is...

1. Become a follower
2.Spread the word about the new challenge on your blog by grabbing the banner and showing it off with a link back to here.
3. Add a link to your blog with the little blue frog.

But there is more if you are Marianne mad and would like to be on the DT you have arrived at the right time. I am looking for a people to join the team. As part of the DT you will need to make an inspiring project for each months challenge and comment on entrants creations. You do not need any previous DT experience just bags of enthusiasm.
The DT term will be for 1 year.

So if this sounds like something you would like to do please leave DT by your name and rather than just linking to your blog link direct to your favourite Marianne Designs creation and be sure to put a shout out on your blog about the new challenge blog and DT call.

***************The DT call will run until 31st of July**************

Please leave your link with the little blue frog. Don't forget to mention the DT call if you want to go in for the DT."

Thanks for stopping by
