Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!


Good day! It's time for another Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!!  This months theme is BUTTONS!!

AND the design team has some secret clues for you - so make sure you tally them up and leave them in the WMS play room!!

I played it very safe this month, since my mojo has wandered off somewhere - it may need a shock collar like my poor puppy who always comes home covered with burrs or spurs or something nasty like that!!!!

Anyway....... I used buttons on flowers - a time honoured tradition I would say haha......

I stamped the little stems and flowers from Pic-nic Patterns in Enchanted Evening and Melon Berry. The sentiment and the little doo-dad design are from Fancy Phrases.    



The circle is stamped in Melon Berry, punched out and popped up and then the buttons were threaded with blue twine.  The circle stamp is from Faux Fun Circles.

I punched out the bottom of the panel with a Martha Stewart Lace punch - it is quite tough to punch on that deliciously thick cardstock, but my muscles proved too much for Martha HEE!

My patterned paper is from Basic Grey Hopscotch and I did a bit of sewing around the edges with my funky sewing maching - love it!

A ribbon, a sweet little stick pin and then the cute little topper brad thing finished it off. The blue topper thingy is from Close to My Heart - I bought them at a stamping party years ago!  They are really sweet and come in all different shapes and sizes.....or at least they did!

Thanks for coming around - I'm off to view the rest of the waltzers!!
