Button It!!! CES DT


Do you know I sit here sometimes for what seems like forever trying to think of how to start my post off, then when I do think of something I  type it all out and then delete it and revert to the weather LOL!  Although I have woken up to beautiful sunshine which is right in my eyes but I am too lazy to get up off  my butt and pull the blind!!

Over at CES Jenny has chosen the theme of BUTTON IT (more than 1 though please)!  Go check out the challenge post HERE for details of the prize and fab DT samples.

I have used an LOTV image from the new release (yes I did make it to Ally Pally I was always gonna win)!
While I was there I picked up some little crochet flowers and I have had an urge to learn to crochet for a little while now so one of the ladies at work is going to teach me! I have ordered my cotton just waiting for it to arrive, so be warned once I get the hang of it there could be crochet flowers appearing on everything! LOL. 

Stamp - Patchwork Daisy LOTV
Colouring medium - Copics/pencils
Brazil basics card stock
Papers - Prima Meadow Lark
Sentiment - Wild Rose Studio
Punches - Stampin Up 'word windows'
Memory Box corner die but I have used it as a flourish!
Doohickey Butterfly die
Little Crochet flowers and Roses- The Hobby House  
Mini Blooms and Cherry Blossoms - Crafty Emmas
Pearls, buttons, lace, ribbon and bling from stash

A gorgeous card, Karen. I love the colours and the image is so sweet. I have come to the conclusion that knitting, crochet and I do not get on and we shall just have to leave well alone! I just can't get the hang of either, but I do love the sweet little flowers.
