Cute as a button ...

That's this weeks challenge at City Crafter ... hosted by lovely Linda ... (soon to be Grandma) so what could be more fitting than to make a card or project with a Baby Theme to include Button/s and Bow/s Here's the inspiration picture for you 


Our Guest designer this week is non other than Sandy Ang ... I tell you ... I am in awe of Sandy's projects ... go check out her lovely blog ... she is such a sweet kind hearted lady ... Our sponsor this week is Pixie Dust Paperie ... Have you bought from Pixie Dust? they have lovely goods and the postage is so reasonable even for here in the UK ... well worth a visit ...

So ...  for this weeks' challenge I decided to make something for me ... I apologise now for the pictures ... I found this so hard to photograph especially with the muted colours


I made a cute little folder with a frame 


using of course some buttons ...


... and a bow ... and yes that is my 'baby' ... 



I promise you ... this looks much nicer IRL


Is this any clearer?
It was all constructed from thick card ... covered with paper and embellished ... the frame is another thick piece of card cut and covered and there is some clear acetate providing a window for my picture 
... those cushions my 3 week old is lying on are hideous ... but back then (28yrs ago) I thought they were so nice Lol!
Well I hope that you will join us this week at City crafter Challenge ... and have a look at all the work from the rest of the DT ... we are now only a few weeks away from our 1st Birthday too ... 
Have a wonderful day 
Till soon

~ Ros ~

So beautiful, Ros! It is nice to have something for yourself once in awhile! Love all the little elements that make this special, and the color choices. Great challenge piece!

You are too kind Ros. I love the softness of your project in colours that I often struggle with. And wish I could learn how to tie a perfect bow like yours.

Ros you never cease to amaze and surprise me with another handmade beauty. You know how much I love soft colors and this project made me speechless. I love it to pieces! En the picture of Mikey? Awe....he's adorable ( and probably still is...:)!!)
I could write a comment as long as a bookpage but is it enough when I tell you that this is STUNNING?!! Enjoy your evening! XXXX

I laughed when I read your remark about your cushions... I had some just about like those more like 34 years ago. Funny how styles change... or maybe thank goodness they change. Any way, it's a beautiful piece of art you've created there Miss Ros! Just lovely!!!
Have a Happy Day!

What a beautiful keepsake. And I think it's great you made it for yourself. I love all of the soft colors and the perfect embellishments. What ugly cushions?? All I see is a cute little baby.
