Cute as a button....

Good morning everyone, what a fabulous week-end we have had... I  think Summer isn't too far away!...  As you know from last week David went for his injection, all went well for a few days but sadly it seems to be wearing off.  He was over the moon for a couple of days then, all of a sudden his leg gave way and he has started with the pain again.. not as severely but it does seem to be creeping up again... he will give it a little longer and then I think it's back to the specialist....

It's Tuesday already and time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly'.... so what would Dawny like to see this week, well it's nice and easy... you can do cute or you can include a button, or you can do both!... easy, peasy!! I read the challenge wrong and thought it was all about buttons!!.. but it's ok as what I made still fits in with the challenge.

Create with your Soul...

Good morning everyone, hope you have all had a lovely week, hasn't it been gorgeous!  The week-end was a bit cool here in Yorkshire, and we had a flash of hailstone too!... but lovely all the same lol!!
 Being Tuesday it's time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weely' and this week Dawny would like the main focus of the card to be Words... I've made a card from a beautiful stamp from a company called 'Visible Image' called 'Create with your Soul'.. I bought this last year and haven't had the opportunity to stamp it up.. so here goes! I wanted to try and make a vintage style card but it's turned out a bit steam punk!! I really enjoyed messing with all the inks, but would do a few things differently next time... I die cut the clock in craft card, then painted it with gesso, then added all different colours of Tim Holtz distress inks, it was a lot darker yesterday and the colours were better, so next time I think I will leave it to dry completely before assembling as I think it could have done with more colour on it, it looked a bit whitish the following morning!..  I also bought some fabulous wax gilt last week-end and I've put it on everything lol!! it does give a lovely finish!!

I had a lovely week-end as Debs came up for four days, it all went too fast though!.. we had our first barbecue this week-end too!.. well it's back to work today and also it's another lovely challenge over at Papertake Weekly. This week it's anything goes with the option of adding a bunny, I didn't have time to colour any images so I thought this lovely art pad design from LOTV would be nice and colourful.
