Buttons

Good Monday Morning!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I'm scheduling this post for today as I know I will be short on time in the morning. Hope you're Monday is off to a good start!

Today we have a new challenge over at Whimsy Challenges and it's all about buttons! We want to see you using buttons, buttons, and buttons on your creations this week. You don't need to use a Whimsy image to play along, but if you have one we'd love to see it. And if you don't have any, you may want to pop over and check out how to order this cute teddy image, it's for a great cause!

My card uses this sweet "Teddy for Paige" digital image available at Whimsy Stamps. All proceeds from the sale of this image will go directly to the Paige Welch account. If you don't remember Paige, she is a young girl who was injured in a boating accident this summer which resulted in the loss of part of her arm. Whimsy Stamps is helping to raise money to help with Paige's medical bills. If you would like to help, please visit the Whimsy Stamps website for more info! We appreciate each of you taking the time to help with this cause! Thank you!

I've used the sketch from Sketch Saturday with some BasicGrey Lemonade papers. I've distressed the edges a bit. I do love doing that and it fits the challenge at Cupcake Craft! The pink papers have been stamped with hearts and swirls from the Layers of Color stamp set Polka Dot Love. I've embellished with felt flowers, prima flowers, buttons, and a couple pieces of ribbon. This card also fits the challenges at One Stop Craft of Beary Nice and Secret Crafter Saturday which is one for the girls.

Thanks for dropping on by, if you're up for a challenge hop on over to Whimsy Challenges and join in our buttons challenge. Happy stamping! :)
