Truly Daisy

On the Truly Scrumptious challenge blog was another fab sketch with an option of handmade buttons. I made felt buttons, first I stuck the felt on a piece of card makes life easier to cut them out and to handle, I added them to funky flowers made with a EK sucess punch. The papers are scraps of Daisy Bucket papers which this sketch is great too use them up. Now Daisy gave me a dilemma because using a brown inkpad I stamped her and she looks so good I didn't want to colour her in, so really I've only use the beige colour for highlighting the shadow.
Yesterday after I had published my post, I settled down to have a bit of blog hop and suddenly I lost my connection and occurring to the recorded message wouldn't be back till 1.30pm, when I will be enjoying my lunch with some friends. No problem I'll catch up last night, well Mr Blogger just likes to go really slow and I'm not know for my patience, so sorry I gave up. So I've got a lot of catching up to do today.
