Buttons and Bows!!

Happy Monday and Happy Week to everyone! I hope you have all had a magnificent weekend and are ready for a splendid week. I am going to ignore our weather forecast for the next several days because they are using the SNOW word along with FREEZING RAIN...and I don't like either of those forecasts!!! When is SPRING really going to arrive...and where is it???? haha

Today is the first day for the new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenge and the theme for this fortnight is Buttons and Bows!! How fun is that??? And as always you can be assured that there will be a wonderful prize from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop for some lucky participant!! So get your buttons and bows together and come on over and join in with us!!!!
 
 
 
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Pebbles Family Ties Paper Pad. The darling Bildmalarna My Chicken image was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Prisma Glitter for the frill of her dress. I used a blue dotted grosgrain ribbon for the vertical to anchor 5 of the Medium Polka Dot Buttons from the Wild Orchid Crafts shop. I topped each button with a Small Satin Bow. All of the flowers are also from WOC: Carnations, Hip Rosebuds, and Wild Rose. The front of the card was finished with Self-Adhesive Pearls.
 
 
I just had to show you the inside jotting spot!! I used another button and bow along with half of the Bildmalarna Chicks and Hens image...too cute!!!
 
Thank you so very much for dropping by and I hope you will want to come by often. Remember that if you scroll down I have several SWEET STUFFs which are open until Tuesday at midnight, including my Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF and a couple of Whimsy SWEET STUFFs!! Have a wonderful week, and until the next time, I send BIG HUGS!!!

Hugs and Kisses!!

A very happy day to everyone!!! I hope that things are just wonderful in your world and that you are having a splendid week!! Is anyone else ready for SPRING???? I am past ready after this week of bitter cold!!
 
I thought I would show you a card I made for the last Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine in which there was a team-up between Whimsy Stamps and Tiddly Inks. The image I selected is You Are On My Mind and I think she is such a little cutie! She was colored with Copics and Promarkers adding a bit of Stardust Stickles and Prisma Glitter. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from Nikki Sivils Sugar Cookie paper pad. The image is resting on a cut from the Double Scallop Doily Die and the opposite corners are from the Corner Dies Set, adding some pearls for interest. Hugs and Kisses are from the Love Mini Tickets cut out with the Mini Ticket Die, adding a couple of tiny silk bows. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts: Trellis Roses, Wild Roses, and Hip Rosebuds. The white glitter heart button is from my stash.
 
I hope you like my little creation and will drop by again real soon. Remember that on Saturday at midnight there will be a new Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF for some lucky participant! Thank you so very much for coming by and I hope to see you again real soon. Big hugs!!
