Challenge 10 - Cute as a Button x

Hey guys, nice to see you again :-D It's been an absolutely amazing month for me as I've spent the majority of it on my hols in the south of Italy :-) You can find out all about it and see our holiday pics on my personal blog if you want to pop by x x

Once again a big thank you to everyone who entered our challenge last month - I really enjoyed  seeing the sketch come to life on your beautiful cards - we'll definitely have to do more sketch ones in the future :-) x

I've run the numbers though the Random Number Generator again and the winner for the Sketch challenge is:


Congratulations hun – I’ll add your card to the winners wall today x If you email me at with your choice of 4 digis I’ll get them over to you. You can grab your winners badge from the sidebar too – any probs let me know x

As you can see from the title above this month’s challenge is Cute as a Button which we're hoping will be an easy one to play along with (as long as you have a button or two in your stash that you can pop on your card) be careful if you're super gluing mind - I think there's a bit of finger left on my creation lol :-) x 

As always, a winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator and announced on the 1st of next month (when we launch the August challenge). They will have their choice of 4 free Flat Friends digi’s and their card will feature on our Wall of Fame for the month.

A Flat Friends digi must be used for your creation but there are some freebies that can be used if you don't already own one of my designs which can be accessed from the freebies tab above x

As always our amazing DT gals have given us some beautiful inspiration to get us going so I'll leave you to have a look at their cards (thank you lovely ladies) x We look forward to seeing your gorgeous creations too x x   

Digi Hugs and xx's


Hi everyone, it's Kathy. I love the theme of buttons, I have a huge jar filled with buttons and love to work them into some projects. I'm getting ready for a beach vacation, so I picked Beach Day to use this month. I hope you will dig out some buttons and play along with us. 

Hi everyone, it's Patty. I like buttons very much, I have a huge collection of all colors of buttons i like to work them into my projects. I picked Summer Stroll to use this month. All of the papers are from my Scrap Stash and use some yellow griham ribbon for the loop. Come and play along with us. 

Sally - Hi there ladies & gentlemen, here is my July challenge "Button" design team entry. I used one of Emma Canning's Summer digi images, I coloured her with my Graph it markers in ice cream colours, used three little buttons for the ice cream cone. I then cut her out adhered her to some stripey paper  and birthday wishes paper and finally on the lovely button paper from the new Bon Belle CD Rom from Polkadoodles - Marshmallow collection. Printed off some of the buttons and added a sentiment. x

Hiya guys, Em here – I didn’t mean for my card to be quite so simple this month it just sort of happened lol – it’s definitely a good design if you’re on a budget and I do like clean and simple cards so thought I’d stick with it once it was done :-D I thought I’d have a go with the ‘Millie Bedtime’ digi for this challenge as I’ve had a week of struggling to peel myself out of bed after my hols and it seemed fitting :-) I cut a tag shape in the white card I’d printed my digi on and stuck it on top of the blue paper which is from the My Mind’s Eye ‘Away we Go’ paper pad. I had some cute little pink buttons in my craft cupboard that matched well with Millie’s nightie so I stuck those down with a bit of super glue in the tag to match the pink/blue colour combo of her outfit and finished the card off by mounting the top piece with foam pads to give the card a bit of depth x
