This challenge gets a 10 from me!

This week's challenge at Our Creative Corner is a 10 challenge - in your creation, include the number 10, or 10 of the same items (buttons, flowers, etc). Check out the design team's fun takes on this challenge! My card is really quite CAS for me, even with ten buttons:
Supplies: stamps from Paper Smooches;
label die from Sizzix;
paper from Doodlebug;
flatback feet from Dress it Up!;
blue & white buttons from stash;
black Glaze pen from Sakura;
Palette Noir ink
This little dino is so FREAKING CUTE I can barely stand it! I stamped out several to play with colour combinations, and this blue one wanted to be a baby card. I actually forgot while stitching the buttons on that there needed to be 10, so consider my relief when I photographed it & counted...woohoo for my subconscious kicking in for that. 

The plumbing woes are continuing. No heavy machinery yet. Cleanup isn't finished yet...and yeah, I think I don't want to talk about it. The water and sludge are gone. The rest had better be soon. 

I've got lots of stuff to share but I'm also in panicked night-before mode for the last-minute teacher gifts. Everything's made, but not yet assembled (and of course the kids have to have a special message for each teacher) - and it doesn't matter how many times I regret this last-minute scramble, I will still do it. Every time.

Yay for sludge being gone! :-))))

Umm, I am in the same club of getting it together the night before. Why we do this to ourselves is beyond me. I always say I am going to prepare ahead next time, but don't!

And yes, your card is freaking cute and I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE all the buttons! You rocked it girl!

He is very cute and especially in blue! Looks like a fun challenge and your ten buttons look awesome.
Good luck with the teacher gifts we have another three weeks yet but it will still be last minute for me too!

This is SO cute, Jessi! I love that dino, too, but those tiny feet could provide some competition. This is a fabulous baby boy card!
