Sundays with Crissy ~ Buttons & Bows

 

Happy Sunday!   Hope you are all having a wonderful Fall weekend.   It’s my turn to post for our Sundays With Crissy challenge blog – Yay!    We have a super fun challenge for those of you who love girlie-girl cardz ~ BUTTON & BOWS.

I’ve colored this sooooooooo adorable Snuzzle Love cutie illustrated by Crissy Armstrong for Wags ‘n Whiskers ~ can you tell I just love her?!    But I promise not to go on and on about how much she reminds me of my granddaughter! 

 

 

Lots of buttons, and actually a few bows – if you look very closely, I added some real TEENY TINY bows to the bunny’s outfit and the hair braid.  Yes, I do love bows!   

I’m also in love with this paper from Cosmo Cricket!   Being that I’m a total purple addict, it’s perfect for me!!   You would not believe how many coordinating papers in this color scheme are in this collection called Pixie-Licious ~ I was in heaven!    And, speaking of being happy – I found this scrap piece of ribbon in my stash from a card I had made AGES ago and it matched the DP perfectly!!    Yes, it’s the little things.    🙂

I decided to do an easel card, which is always my favorite for special cardz.   One tip that I learned from my inspiration go-to card designer, Rachel Jakes, is to add a little DP to the inside of the easel fold.   It’s such a simple little addition, but seems to really add a lot to the whole card, IMO!    Here’s a quick photo to show you what I’m talking about . . .

 

 

The gorgeous button flowers, which are already sewn and edged are from Sassafrass and come in a pack of 7 ~ a perfect number for my card!  

 

 

And last, but definitely not least, I HAD to share with you where the sentiment is from!   The dear, sweet, wonderful and SUPER talented buddy, Jami Bova has created a complete sheet of these very cool and popular digi Ticket Sentiments.  

They’re really awesome, but the best part is she is offering them for FREE!   How cool is that!    Here’s where you can find them on Jami’s blog.    Thank you Jami!
