900 posts! Wow!

Yep, this is post #900...crazy! I am a round number person. If it ends in a 5 or a 0 I like it much better (unless it is my age...what's THAT about?)

My Drunken Stampers post is coming up, but since I've gotten some more challenge cards done & we'll be gone tomorrow for Thanksgiving, I figured I'd better get a head start on sharing them!

Here's a couple baby cards for the General Craft Supplies challenge at Moxie Fab World - using one of my favourite supplies - buttons - in one of my favourite ways - framing an image panel.


Supplies: BUTTONS; Mustard Seed distress ink; My Mind's Eye paper; feet stamp from All Night Media; sentiment from PTI; classic small circle Nesties; seam binding from stash


Supplies: dress, shoes, and 'little gal' stamp from Unity; 'hello' stamp from Paper Smooches; Memento Gray Flannel ink; Spun Sugar distress ink; Bic Markers; BUTTONS; embossing folder; classic small circle Nesties

It's time consuming to sew all the buttons on, but I find it soothing and relaxing (all up until I drop a button into the no-man's land under my desk, anyhow...)

xoxo,
Jessi

Both cards are fabulous, you sew the buttons on? WOW how tedious is that. It certainly makes it awesome though. Where do those things you drop go?

Donna said...
