Divas by Design - Buttons and Bows

Good morning everyone ....

It's been a very long time since I last posted and visited your blogs :-(

For the last month I have been working my notice at my old part-time job and working some shifts in my new (almost) full-time job.  I have now finished at my old work place and am settling into my new role, however, there's lots to learn and lots of training. I've been job hunting for the past 6 months, so with all that behind me I'm hoping that over the coming weeks I'll be able to do a bit more crafting and visit you more often :-)

So on to our new challenge over at Divas by Design
and we're looking for

Buttons and Bows

We're sponsored this week by Iva Nova Chest

For my little bit of buttons and bows inspiration I've used a Hobby House topper from the Wee Stamps sheet Rosetta to make my card.

The little hearts around the image are all tiny little buttons, which I've had for ages and the papers and seed packets are by Pion.

The doily is a Cheery Lynn die 'English Tea Party' and I've also used the DooHickey 'Heart Swirl Branch'. The flowers are a mixture of WOC and The Hobby House. For the bow I've used ribbon from Mei Flower and tied the bow with my Bow-It-All.

I've got a few cards to show you that I've made for DT challenges and just not had enough time to blog, so I'll be showing those over the next couple of weeks.

Bye for now.

Happy Crafting

Big Hugs,
Janine x
