The Paper Shelter – Buttons and Bows

Hi everyone, well I survived my study day and I am now home ready to unwind with a bit of crafting. I have lots of DT samples to make so you won’t see them on my blog straight away but the results should be up next week I think.

I have been itching to share my card for this weeks The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog with you all. It is not very often that I love my own cards but this is a real favourite of mine. It just came together really easily and so that is probably one of the reasons. I also love the papers and the colours too ….. hope you like it….

The theme this week is buttons and bows. I have so many buttons but hardly ever use them. I must start digging them out, I really like them sat on my bow like that. Typical that I have started buying twine but still failed to have the correct colour to thread a little bow through the button, never mind.

Another insert decorated ….. I am slightly impressed with myself – wonder how long I can keep this up???? I am totally in love with these papers – they are so lush ….. foiled and glazed, ooooh it hurt to cut into them I can tell you!

A closer look at the image – she is just great isn’t she. Love her grumpy face, bless haha ….. she is called ‘A Little Bit Grumpy’ and is available to buy from The Paper Shelter. I had lots of fun colouring her, this is why I like taking my colours from my backing papers, I probably wouldn’t have chosen these colours for her originally but I just loved the papers that I had to use them.

And look ….. even a box!!!!!! Don’t faint! This sheet of paper is so beautiful in real life, the glazing is stunning and has to be seen to be really appreciated. I couldn’t bare to cover it with any other bits of paper.

So thats your lot ….. remember to join in on the challenge blog for a chance to win – full details on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog ….. remember you can use any image at all.
