watch out for falling roses and sticky buttons...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a wonderful Valentines Day...go on make us all jealous with the showers of gifts you all got...I had a quiet day but did loads of crafting so see I did get off my butt and do something today lol...I made four cards and was just finishing this one and the three buttons I had chosen went missing, now remember my craft room is tidy now and no matter how hard I searched the floor I couldn't find them...so I decided to go get something to eat before I finished it and when I stood up the buttons were stuck to my bum (that will teach me to put the sticky on before they are needed), now how on earth...I know its big but not big enough to sweep the floor lol...the moral of this tale is if something goes missing when your crafting check your bum, you never know...right now onto my card for today using this beautiful Some Odd Girl digi called Brella Fairy, I won three digis from The Ribbon Carousel challenge so chose this beauty and two other that you will see soon as I cant resist colouring them, I coloured her with distress inks and added a little bit of glitter on her wings...now how lush is this Cosmo Cricket paper, when I tidied up my room I found a box full of what I thought were scraps and in the bottom there were about 12 sheets of 12x12 papers I bought about a year ago and this was one of them...how shocking is that, I need a good shake I think...this is a double sided sheet from the De Lovely collection and is called DeLirious...stunning colours isn't it and I love the teeny little roses...I didn't add anything except the three buttons and stamped a sentiment from Kaisercraft on one of the circles...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Digital Tuesday challenge my stash is my year old paper)...well I so enjoyed my crafting day today I'm going to have another today, a good colour and play does you the world of good doesn't it...whatever your up to today watch out for wandering buttons

I might suggest that you DON'T tell the recipient of the card where those buttons have been, rofl!! Oh you do make me laugh missus. My "sticky" pile is to the right of my cutting mat and I usually end up with things tacked to my elbow or sleeve. What a cute little image! And you are right, those papers are lurrvely. Have a good day. Hugs Sxx

Bernie said...

Another gorgeous card Mina! I'm sorry to laugh about the buttons but a week or so ago I 'lost' a new Spellbinder's die. I spent the day searching for it interspersed by doing laundry, some house work and cooking dinner before my DH asked me what was ‘that thing’ on the sleeve of my sweater. Yup the die! It had been stuck there all day.
Hugs & Blessings
Bernie
