Howdy, folks! Hope your week is going okay! Laurel has a sweet little Inspired By challenge for us today, but I really am not ready to think about going back to school!!! But here we go:
We have a sponsor today, A Flair for Buttons! So be sure to check out the IB blog to find out the details! This is wee bit busier than I usually do, but it was SO much fun! I used some Bo Bunny and older SUpapers; the pencil is from an old Cornish Heritage Farms set called Make the Grade; it was stamped in Memento Black and colored with SU Blends. The "A Note for You" is from Wood Words, and the alphabet letters are from Papertrey. And finally, aren't those little buttons COOL!?
And here's our prompt:
And here are a couple close-ups, just for fun:
The buttons don't have holes in them, they're solid, so I used some Tear 'n Tape to adhere them to the card! My card was inspired by one I got for my birthday, made by the uber-talented Shawn:
I just love this sketch...I guarantee you will be seeing more of it in the future! And I'll be sharing more birthday cards from my uber-talented friends in the days to come! Thanks for popping in today---be sure to share your creation with us at Inspired By....we can't wait to see it!
Cassidy wanted me to make a little pillow for one of the dolls from her doll house; I've been WAITING for a moment like this, to encourage her to learn to sew! She's still a little young but once she figured out how to use the pedal (training for driver's ed maybe?) she had a little better control! First we practiced on some scrap fabric:
And then we tackled the little pillow...it's tiny for sure! She stitched the side seams, turned it inside out, put a couple of cotton balls inside and sewed it shut! And she picked out the fabric herself! Hopefully I planted the seed for more sewing projects in the future!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
