Button it @ MDUC

Hello, Hope you are enjoying the weekend so far.

This week at MDUC we want to see you use some

BUTTONS

I thought I'd be brave & treated myself to a couple of
"brighter" colour re-inkers this week,
This one is called "Seedless Preserve"
As usual I hand-dyed the ribbon and added a bit too much ink.
It took me 2 days to get rid of it off my hands LOL!
A close-up of the tag and the ribbon.
 I also used one of the new Joy craft "garden" dies and
heat-embossed it with frantage to add a bit of glamour.
xXx
Have a look at what my gorgeous teamies have come up with.
They're all stunning.
Hope you can join us this week.

Thanks for your fab comments.

Poppy Tilda

Happy Saturday everyone!

I have another Poppy Tilda to share today.
She's just so pretty & she is exclusive to Sir Stampalot

I made this at my recent demo and as I sanded the edges 
I got a bit heavy-handed and ripped the corner,
Good job I like the distressed look. 

Have a great weekend

Tilda Longstocking

A super-quick post today,

Masking at MDUC

Good evening,
I'm back from ALLY PALLY,
I had a fab day with my gorgeous crafty friends 
& I even got myself a few treats LOL

Over at MDUC this week we want to see . . .

MASKING

I originally had my Edwin card lined up for this,
BUT then Magnolia only went and released the new collection
and I just HAD to have Princess Pea & her Mattresses!!!

Then when I went to upload on the challenge blog, 
the lovely Kat had used the same 2 stamps,
I couldn't believe it, we'd even used the same 
decorative oval & it looks like the same layout too ~
What are the odds of that?
Well they do say wise minds think alike LOL
At least our styles are completely different.

Anyway here's my take on it...
I used the DooHickey feathers as I thought they were just perfect for the feather mattresses LOL !
I  LOVE my new fern that my lovely friend Chris got me for my birthday,
 think it's going to become a favorite of mine
I've also used some gorgeous new "pins" 
which I'd seen over at Bev's blog and they are gorgeous when covered in frantage.

I'd like to enter the following:
Deep Ocean Challenge ~ Flowers & Fantasy DT call
I hope you can join in with us this week.

Don't forget we have a DT call, 
pop over and take a look HERE

I'll be back tomorrow with some news to share
Thanks for popping by
