Hobbycutz Challenge 58. . . . . . . . . . .Buttons Galore

Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well? Thank you for all your lovely comments on Anya's card.

Today's card is my Hobbycutz DT post for the latest challenge which is Buttons Galore as chosen by Elaine and our sponsor is All Dressed Up.
Now, most of you know, I'm not a fan of buttons on cards so this was a challenge for me, not least as I had to go button shopping again. I got these from work in the end so I now have a container full lol!
No sentiment as yet as I shall put it in my box for later use.

Cream card base cut to 6x6
Cream linen PMD card
Brown Lidl card
Hobbycutz lazer cut circle
Sissix square dies
SB Captivating Squares
SB Imperial embossing folder
Papermania Capsule buttons
Dovecraft bling

Hope you call all pop over to Hobbycutz and join in the challenge.

Had a super time on Friday meeting up with John for lunch. It was great to catch up in person rather than just by phone. He was looking toned and tanned and very well (That boy is too handsome!)

That's me for today.

Enjoy the Sun and be good.

  1. This is lovely Mrs Duck I'm very jealous that you great Crafters appear to live north of Watford Gap! Although it's a bit dull today I'm hoping to go to Hyde Park and join in with Rueda in the Park - Salsa dancing (my third passion! After knitting and card making)

  2. Morning Ang,
    Great use of the buttons on your card, like you I'm not a fan. Bet you and John had a good natter.

  3. Morning, a lovely card with buttons. Lucky you to live close enough to meet John for lunch. Have a good day. Janice x

  4. Hi Ang. Lovely buttons and lovely card. I was wondering what die you'd used for the middle and then realised it was a lazer cut. really special aren't they.
    Glad you had a lovely lunch with our John.
    Are you torn between the sun and the motor racing today?
    Whatever you're doing have a good day.

    Love Val x

  7. Hi Ang. I love this card and the way you have used the buttons. I love using buttons on my cards and have loads of them, most that were in my Gran's button tin : ) Good to hear that you and John had a good time on Friday. Have a good day. Take care.

  8. Great card Ang, Great for you to see John. xxxx

  9. Brilliant card, love all the lovey elements "especially" the buttons, I just love buttons.
    Nothing better than a big sweetie jar of them to run your hand through, so relaxing.
    Sad I know but that's me ....... not a sad person though, I am always happy.
    Bucketing rain here so no need to paddle in the pond
    Have a wonderful day

  18. Hi Ang,
    trying to play catch up with every ones blogs now I have caught up with my load of family, and commission cards.
    Phew thankfully this month is a bit quieter for family Birthdays, and Anniversaries.
    Still that's what you get for having a big family.
    My Mum was one of ten but she only had 3 children, I also only had 3, but I lost my first hubby to the bif C and met a man with 3 children also, so I now have six, and 12 grandchildren, and 2 little great granddaughters.
    Arn't you the lucky one having lunch with John, I am totally jea. lol.
    Now as usual I have digressed from your lovely card.
    Fab and wonderful designing, you should have told me chuck you wanted buttons, as I have inherited a great big sweetie tin full, but sadly no sweets boo hoo.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  19. This is just fabulous! I love the intricate designs and your use of the buttons is very creative! Wonderful! :)

  20. Gorgeous card Ang, the use of the buttons and lovely colours used.xx
