High Hopes Challenge #23

Well this is my first high hopes challenge card. I must say there stamps look lovely but sadly I haven't got any so I used one of my bella stamped images. The challenge was to use buttons on your card so I found threee of my red buttons and stitched them with white thread. I have used some of the backing papers I had left over from the card I made yesterday from Joanna Sheen's Messy Rabbit CD.

Thanks for looking.

Cuddly Buddly Time!!!

Here's one I have been working on this afternoon. I have used a Cuddly Buddly Charlie Stamp and coloured using water colour pencils. The backing papers are from basic grey and flowers are ones I got free with my issue of cardmaking and papercraft this month. The greeting is also from cuddly buddly. I have used my nestabilities to cut out the scalloped circles.
