BUTTONS & BOWS . . .

 . . . that's the theme for the challenge this week over on Sugar Creek Hollow.  If you're not familiar with this challenge blog ... jump right over and check 'em out ... then jump to their store to see all the awesome images for purchase!

(click on image to enlarge)
The background paper used on this creation is from a K&Company pack I just purchased at JoAnne's.  I've run a 'string' of gold Stickles between the Bucket 'o Buttons to 'join' them.  White satin ribbon adorns the corner and the lavendar organza bow was made using my Bow Easy (how did I ever live without that little gizmo!!).  Today I decided to do my coloring with my SU watercolor pencils and blender pen (they've been neglected for a while now!!).  

Other Challenges are:
Card Cupids - Buttons & Bows
I Dit It Creations - Anything Goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Buttons, Brads, Beads, Bows (any or all)

That's it for me tonight!!  Now I'm headed upstairs to spend the evening with hubby (and probably fall asleep on the couch).  Hope you've had a pleasant weekend ... I sure did!  Hugs to you all and thanks for stopping by!!
