BG+Buttons=HEAVEN!!


My oh so talented pal Chris is one of the DT for the new Basic Grey challenge blog so I had to join in with the fun as 1) I adore BG and 2) she may shout at me! LOL!
The first challenge is to make a card using buttons...so here is my effort using acetate. My one button is vintage, papers are BG 'sultry' and there is memory wire behind the flower. I've really enjoyed making this so many thanks to Martine for coming up with such a brilliant challenge blog!
Hugs,
Emma,x

Wowee Emma - Gorgeous !
Great minds because I have just finished mne too - not as lush as this though!
Well the spotty paper I'm so sorry but it was free from a card magazine last year I think - you know how you get those free paper books well it was one of those - I keep all my scraps in a pile and hardly ever use them!!!

Donna said...

Hi Emma, just wanted to let you know that i have posted xmas cards for the troops this morning, was holding back to wait for my new forever friends stamps but there is no sign of them yet so thought i'd better get the cards off to you, i did write this in a little letter to you, which is sitting in front of me instead of being in the parcel doh, ah well its an age thing i think. Take care Donna x

Juliet said...

Hi Emma, haven't had time to blog hop for a while and I just wanted to say how sorry I am about your dear friend. It's especially sad her being so young and with a young family. Sending hugs and love, Juliet xx

Katty Bell said...

This card has a very rich and sumptuous feel, I think it's the gorgeous colourways. The pink and black one is a stunner too!
Just caught your comment on my blog.
The link is there for as many as want to use it, so of course... the more the better. I had put it up there in the hope that it might help put the record straight about CFS/ME.
Sending you hugs,
Katty.X

Christine (Craftling) said...

Hiya.. 'smee again.. Sorry for hijacking your Basic Grey comments, but I'm just picking the most recent post to say an official 'thank you' for joining in with my 'blog candy against word verification' campaign HERE

You have two entries in the draw. Best wishes with that! :o)

Hope things are getting better, bit by bit. Take care and God bless..
