Delightful Challenge Thursday – Button, Button!

Hello, hope all is great with you and yours!

Today launches a brand new challenge over at the Delightful Challenge Blog and our theme this week is Button, Button! So use buttons or brads on your creation!

We are sponsored by Robin's Nest 
who are offering a fabulous prize!

The image I used is the uber cute Peyton and what a sweetie he is! He has a lovely little face and I adore his dungarees! Very popular in the 80’s I believe! Well I don’t ‘believe’ I know because I was there and had a pair!!! No photos survive though I’m happy to say! Well not after they hit the shredder anyway!!J

Image: Peyton
Dies: Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – A6 tent-fold card blank from Craftwork Cards - LOTV ‘Bear Necessaties’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers and pens
Others: Buttons from The Hobby House – Twine & brads from stash

Pop over to the Delightful Challenges Blog to see the amazing inspiration created by my teamies and check out the shop for the cutest digis EVER !!

Thanks so much for looking, and for my get well messages concerning my migraines! An unfortunate but regular part of my life I’m afraid so I’ll be moaning about them on here from time to time (sorry!).  But as so many others go through far, far worse than me I count myself very blessed that this is all I have to put up with!!!  Well apart from my Hopeless Hand-drawings that is!!! J

Have a fabulous day everyone!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
