Happy Monday All!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!! I sure did. I did everything but stamping but sometimes it is nice to take a break and just spend time with the family and do other things. My hubby and I spent Saturday creating wood projects and doing some tole painting for a charity auction to be held locally next week. It was fun to do something that would help others as well as have quality time together.

Today I am on the bandwagon trying to create, create, create.... The card I am sharing with you today uses today's TLC239 Layered Buttons, Mojo 105 Sketch, and the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to use fall colors on your creation. The stamps used were Angelica's Daydreams, Shy Little Nickie (bench only) and Fall Whimsy (retired from SU).

It was fun creating a fall scene and creating these buttons. I don't know why I never thought to make these earlier. They are very easy peasy and can create the perfect coordinating embellishment. All you need is card stock, a circle punch (to match the size button you want to create), waterproof glue that doesn't bubble the cardstock, and crystal effects or some other medium to give it a glossy appearance. I decided to sand the edges of my buttons to make it one layer but not to add gloss to my buttons to create a distressed look.

The image is colored with prisma color pencils and gamsol. The dp is from MME 29th Market Street. I have been hoarding this paper and just had to use it for this fall creation.




Card Recipe:
Stamps: Inky Impressions- Angelica's Daydreams, Shy Little Nicki (bench only), and SU Retired Fall Whimsy for pumpkin and leaves on the bottom panel
Paper: My Minds Eye 29th Market Street, So Saffron, Bitter Chocolate
Accessories: Brown lace trim, EK Success Moraccan Lace Punch, Spellbinders Scalloped rectangles, Circle punch, Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you have a wonderful day!! I can't wait to visit your blogs!!
