MAWTT - 'Use 3 Things Begininng With the Same Letter'


hope you are all well this Thursday morning...  it's time for a new challenge over at

and this week our lovely Kim has chosen a fab theme of...

'Use 3 Things Beginning with the Same Letter'

It doesn't have to be a card... you just need to use 3 things on your creation that begin with the same letter... so lots of scope! ;-)) I'm sure you can all guess that I have gone with the Letter B !! so that's Blue, Birdie and Buttons....

We are sponsored this week by the fab Digi My World

who are kindly giving this week's winner a $10.00 Certificate to spend in-store!!

Annie also gave us some cute images to play with and I have used an image from a set called 'Little Birdie' and they are really sweet!! you can buy them pre-coloured also.

I have digitally coloured this image and used Pink Petticoat Papers... I layered up the papers on my computer and then printed them out as one... so although it looks like more... there are just two layers on this card including the image... I want to make some lighter cards that are easier for postage... so I've kept the embellies to a minimum... 4 buttons, a little silver flower sequin on the flower... and the sentiment which I made on computer.

The image was coloured digitally to match my papers and embellies...and I've added a silver flower sequin and blue pearl was a very quick card but I think it's cute! hope you like it too! :-))

Hope you can pop on over to MAWTT  where there are more details of the Challenge and you can see my Teamies cute creations...looking forward to seeing all your fab entries this week!

Thanks for all your lovely comments!
Will catch up with you soon..
Love and Hugs
