Buttons, Bows & Brads

That's our theme over at Anyone For Anya this week, and there's also a wonderful prize up for grabs which has been donated by the totally fab Tracy at Dies To Die For, so pop over and have a mooch when you get a sec.

Now you could be forgiven for thinking that I'd gone at bit OTT with the Glamour Dust going by this pic, but IRL it doesn't damage yer eyeballs quite as bad as it does here. I think that the light must have just caught it funny.

But check out her fab 'lurex' socks!!! I am just loving them :)

So this is what I did.

Once again I have done a sterling job with the photo editing (not) and it looks a tad on the wishy washy side.

Anyhoos, the theme is Buttons, Bows & Brads and you can use any combination . I went for 1 button and 1 bow. I WAS going to use tiny brads on either side (where the stick on gems are) but I didn't have enough - doh!! So stick on gems it had to be!!!

The paper is Funky Hand's Salt And Pepper ...

... and the ribbon was from the Paper Mill Shop.

The buttons were from my 'cut from an old pair of trousers or something that doesn't fit me anymore due to the increased lardage' collection.

I have quite a lot of these buttons lol xxxx

And that's it peeps.

Well we (Nikkie and I) had a fabulous day yesterday in Manchester at the GMEX. I bought lots of beads and jewellery type stuff but only one stamp.

Mmm, a worrying trend seems to be emerging.

But best of all, I got to meet Dulcie from Wild Rose Studio at long last. Oh she is exactly how I imagined her to be and is just the sweetest and nicest ever. And it was quite surreal for me in a way to see my work on display. I am not really a 'proud' sort of person, unless it comes to my kids, but I did feel a teeny bit chuffed to see it there and hearing that people were saying such nice things about it. It was quite humbling really so thank you to everyone for their nice words xxxxx

Then last night, his nibs and I went out for dinner to a place which is about 35 minutes from here and which we'd heard a lot about but had never been to. Ohh it was FAB. Once again I lived up to my pink piggy name, (minus the pink lol!!!!).

Once again I came home stuffed and once again I am about to start another diet which once again I won't stick to.

On that chubby little note, I am off to do my prep for tomorrow night's card club - tis all go!!! Have the fabbiest of Sundays and don't forget to nip over and check out the AFA blog cos there's some fabbydoodles team cards to see.

Hugs to all xxxx
