A Spoonful of Sugar - Challenge 51

This weeks challenge is

Buttons Galore

We would like to see your creations using as many Buttons as you can, check out the challenge blog
here to get some lovely inspiration and to see this weeks great prize.



I am back but do not know for how long, it has taken hours to write and upload this post, the laptop keeps crashing or freezing every 15 mins or so, I have a new PC on order and hope it will be here before the weekend. I have been quite inventive with this post loading one photo at a time then saving closing down laptop and restarting about half an hour later, but it has worked. Also not being able to go online I have at least managed to finish the 24 cards for my commission, will be able to show you them at the end of June.

I will not tempt fate by writing a long post so will just say a big thank you to Larissa for sending me the link to enable me to buy this fabulous Eline Pellinkhof stamp, I have two more to show you over the next few weeks. Also thanks Dawny P fo this fabulous sketch, it was lat weeks sketch on Papertake Weekly and I feel in love with it as soon as I saw it, I am sure I will be using it time and time again. Thanks Dawny xxxx



I carried Dawnys fab sketch on to the inside.

Stamp with Fun

This week we have a great sketch for you on
Stamp with Fun and also a great set of stamps for one lucky entrant, so please come and join us, you never know you could be the lucky one. Thank you Jacqueline for uploading my card to the challenge blog Mwah xx you are a sweetie. My Fellow DT members have come up with some fabulous creations this week they certainly ROCK.



Another new stamp for this one, I have been seeing these gorgeous little girls over blogland the last week and have fallen for her, there is a whole set of them and it is difficult to choose a favourite, They re available from Charmed Cards an Crafts.



I have been lazy with the inside and used one of the inserts designed by Donna and available on a CD from Bearly Mine Designs, they are up to Donnas usual fantastic standard and I can see this Cd being used a lot for the cards I make to sell, what a great time saver, another winner here Donna.
