Crafts for Eternity - Homemade Buttons

Apologies for the somewhat belated posting of this card. I've not been feeling very well through some of this week & my mojo was also under the weather! But I hope you'll forgive me & think it worth the wait!! I made it for this week's Crafts 4 Eternity challenge which is to make your own

HANDMADE BUTTONS

I made my little Easter egg shaped buttons very simply by layering 3 pieces of card together, cutting out the shape & edging them with Distress Inks. I then ran a piece of embroidery thread through 2 small holes I made with a needle. I covered them in Glossy Accents & sprinkled a little glitter over while it was still wet.


This adorable LOTV bunnie was 'lent' to me by the same lovely lady who let me 'borrow' the image for my last card. He's coloured with Distress Inks & Viva glitters were added to the eggs. The dps are gorgeous MME Fine & Dandy- True Blue papers. I followed the sketch for the Allsorts Challenge, but did not get it done in time to enter! The sentiment is computer generated. A bit of ribbon & a little bling & voila


There are a few challenges I'd like to enter this little cutie in at.

Firstly, Lili of the Valley, where the challenge is Easter.

A Spoonfull of Sugar are asking us the 'celebrate'. This card will be for Ben or Jack, i've not decided yet. I need to make another one tonight before the Easter bunny gets here!

Finally Creative Inspirations want to see cards with pets or animals.

I hope you will now pop on over to hte C4E blog to see what my lovely 
D-teamies have been up to.

Finally, I'd just like to say a big Thank You to the lovely ladies at Stamptacular Sunday, who chose my entry as one of their top 3 last week. I am thrilled & honoured to display their blinkie on my blog.

Well that's it for now. Better get busy with te other Easter card!
Happy Easter one & All!

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Sorry that you have been under the weather. Perhaps your Mojo was just otherwise engaged during the school holidays but it sure came out to play with this card. Beautiful colour work, perfect sparkle and your little hand made egg buttons are delightful! Hugs, Lesley
