Button Up at Southern Girls


Sorry it's been a while since I last posted something... naughty naughty... work getting in the way of crafting yet again .... grrrr!!

Anyway, I'm back now :-D

Today's post is my card for the Southern Girls Challenge which is to use buttons, or badges or show some flair!

I was lucky enough to be able to use the striking Fan-tasia image from Delicious Doodles to make my card... but OMG the ink in my printer decided to give up just as I pressed print... I'm blaming my eldest son who was fiddling about with a quiz sheet for cubs the night before... a vigorous shake and I just about got it printed.  Note to self, make sure you have one cartidge in the printer, one spare!  That said, I'm umming and ahhing if I should get another printer, mines kinda OK, but sometimes the ink needs 24 hours to set before I can colour, and franky I just don't have the time (or the patience if I'm honest!!)... if anyone has a recommendation I'd love to hear it!

Enough of my usual waffle, here's my card

I was a bit bothered that this paper was a bit busy for my image, but I think it all works OK, although I'd have preferred to have used a gold pen for the fan and her hair adornment, but it appears to have vanished from my pen box... I'm gussing it's lurking in my eldest's bedroom (yes he's getting the blame again!), and I'm not daring to go rumaging in an 11 year olds bedroom to find it!

Buttons - from my stash
