TIOT: Button Fun!

helloooooo everyone!

we are slated to have another wonderful day here and i hope to be spending some of it outside again!  we played outside yesterday afternoon and grilled some chicken for dinner – YUMMMMMMMEEEEE!  if i can get a good bit of work done while pezzy is at school i am going to bring a picnic with me to pick her up so we can spend some time out on the playground.  starting tomorrow we are supposed to be getting rain for a few days.  i wonder if we are done with the snow…….


Have you gotten your subscription in for the NEW mini magazine Through the Craft Room Door?  They have really been pouring in and i am excited about the things i have been working on for the first issue and the introduction of the exclusive website!  you can get all of the info >>HERE<<


IN ADDITION to the magazine Suzanne Dean has started a private online classroom called Color Me Creative and is offering some insanely extensive copics classes.  if you want to learn the basics or your looking to become an expert there is a class for you and everything in between.  I will also be adding some classes in the future too!  for info on the classroom >>CLICK HERE<<

Suzanne gave us a fun challenge this week for Try It Out Tuesday over on the store blog for Susana’s Custom Art & Card designs – buttons! i LOVE buttons though i don’t use them often enough!

my paper is from basic grey Eva, available in the 6×6 pad which i LOVE – just enough, not too much! i added a border using an EK success border punch & then used several bronze buttons tied with scrappers floss. Once the card was complete i stamped several prima flourishes in a light colored ink – Versamagic Wheat – and then went over them with 2 viva decor pens – gold glitter and cream pearl – and made little pearls. my big bow is made with the super easy bow easy – works like a charm!

my image is from the wonderful elisabeth bell Sampler 3 collection – Heartstrings. i stamped her with memento black ink and colored her with copics. i think she is just the sweetest!
i hope you all go have a look at the rest of the Design Team projects over on the Store blog – they are jaw dropping!  i was just in awe as i looked at them! don’t forget to sign up for the SCACD new release blog candy both HERE and for a second chance on Victoria Case’s blog!  Then on Friday we will all be participating in the new release blog hop!
