All Buttoned Up

I am back with my favorite male character.  This is Spontaneous Gus - Tidbits from Bugaboo Stamps.  Male cards are always a challenge and Gus has so much personality, my cards just create themeselves.  I created this for my DSIL whom I adore and just love to tease.  He is used to my humor and tolerates me with polite dignity.  Although I do have to say that sometimes he has outright smirked at me and has been know to show some gestures of disgust.  LOL .  I do love that boy.

Our talented Anne is our hostess this week and she wants us to button up our creations.  I love buttons and tend to used them almost as much as ribbons.  (Please note there is not a ribbon in site on this one!)  You should see what my other DT Sistahs have created with their buttons this week.  I peeked in at them when I posted my card and saw some really cute  designs.

Look at this great prize you could win this week.  I certainly would love to win this one, but unfortunately, as a DT Designer I am not qualified.  :(  But guess what you are.  So grab some buttons and go for it.  Can't you just see that lovely blue gingham ribbon in your stash basket?

Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea started the Ribbon Girl when they became frustrated at not being able to buy 'just a metre' of a particular ribbon or piece of lace - now card makers, crafters, cake decorators, stitchers and scrapbookers can choose to buy as much or as little as they need, even if it is just one metre!   There is an amazing choice of numerous types and colours of ribbon, twine, diamante picks and buckle slides, an abundance of beautiful vintage and modern style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, plain, sparkly and polka dot buttons, fancy pins, charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape. We stock only the best quality products such as Divine Twine, Berisford, May Arts, Zva and only offer for sale goods that we would personally buy and use ourselves.
