Buttons and Bows

Buttons and Bows are the challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge and I wanted to use this cute PB stamp since I had borrowed it from my Sis and she will be wanting it back. The papers are scraps of Chatterbox and the flowers are the Woodware punches.
I always thread my buttons, I either tie a knot like today's card or I actually stitch through the flowers, I just feel that they look better if you treat then like buttons.
I've borrowed one of those lap things from Sis and have started to colour images while watching telly in the evening but I do get some strange colours because certain members of the family complain that the daylight lamp is too bright, lucky for me the pony turned out OK.
I had a fabulous e-mail this weekend its cheered me up good and proper but not sure I can tell yet!

Great card Debby. Love the PB image... just a tad worried the hedgehog might get squished by a huge hoof.
I have to agree with you with the threading buttons thing. Look like they are meant to be there and not just stuck.
Spill the beans about your email.... not fair to keep us hanging ;o)

Hi Debby,
This is so lovely, & beautifully coloured. I do all my colouring in front of the TV. I'd never see my hubby if I sqirreled myself away! But then he falls asleep on the settee anyway!! I think the colouring on this is perfect, unless of course you thought you were coloring the horse brown, LOL! As always, I love the 3D. Have a good week.
Hugs,
Andie xx

Your so lucky to have a crafting sister. The colours look great on your image I know what you mean about the moaning with the lights. My hubby likes to watch tele in the dark. So I end up not colouring or missing tele.
Happy crafting
