MAWTT Challenge 139 - 'Cute As A Button'

Good Morning! Hope everyone is well - it's Thursday again already and so time for another wonderful challenge over at.....

Moving Along With The Times

The lovely Laurie is hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of

'Cute As A Button'

So we would like to see cute images and buttons!!

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Stamp Fairy

who very kindly gave us some cute images to work with and I chose Lenny Bee! Isn't he adorable? He has his own little pot of honey!

This is the first mini card that I have made using a Large Circle Nestie. They are fun to do and a little bit addictive!! The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat and I've added it in alongside the image. The little flower was made with Nellie Snellen punch. I don't have many buttons and so had to raid my mum's sewing box, yet again! I found this little green button and so gave it a quick polish!! The frog button is more recent and from my stash.

Stamp Fairy are very kindly offering the winner a $10 Voucher to spend in-store! 

I hope you can pop over to MAWTT for more details of the Challenge and to see the wonderful creations that my Teamies have made for inspiration....

Hi Sue,
Cute as a button indeed! Great coloring of the sweet image and I love the shape of the card. I also want the large nesties....are you using the Grand Calibur with them? Also really liked the flower with button.
