Buttons!!!!!

Firstly I must say a huge thank you to Sam for nominating me for another blog award!




If you are tagged, you should pass this award on to other bloggers you feel make you think, and link to the original post HERE.

Here goes;

I would like to nominate the following bloggers who I find inspirational;

Gillian - I think Gillian's work speaks for itself really _ it is all totally fabulous, but more than that Gillian is such a generous person, always making time to leave comments on peoples work.


Jo - Jo brings so much to the cardmaking world her cards are so inspiring and totally original. If ever I am stuck for an idea I just have to look at Jo's work and pretty soon I feel inspired!!


Lynne - I just love this lady's work!! What a fab addition she has been to the Daring cardmakers blog!! Love her use of papers - Oh and she just happens to be a fabaroonie scrapbooker too!!!

There are so many more people I would like to nominate but I would be here all day!!


Ok back to the dare for today.

I know you've all got buttons stashed away somewhere, whether they've been purchased at a cardmaking store or you thriftily snipped them off DH's old shirt. I'd like you to find those buttons and use them somewhere on a card. They can be real buttons, craft shop buttons, die cut buttons, faux buttons or another type of button, surprise us all.

I am trying to think about my Christmas card designs this year so I am trialing a few different cards.



pp BG fruitcake, mm metal sentiment, and buttons from stash.

Thanks for looking
Sarah
