You shouldn't encourage me..

Now I thought you might all come out in sympathy with hubby (my last post refers), me abandoning him in favour of crafting....but oh no, judging by your comments you are all as bad as me lol.

Well I didn't get out of it so easily today, hubby got me painting the ceiling and the walls of the new craft room and now I ache from head to foot....I think I got sussed out lol.

So as an excuse to recover I made this card for the Arty Girlz challenge # 68 "Button It".

Here's a list of materials I used:

Melissa Frances (the navy background damask stamp)

Flourishes Llc (the pale blue floral stamp)

Sentiments by Anna Griffin and Stampin Up

Martha Stewart Punch

Basic Grey Buttons

Well, I'm off to crash least I'll sleep well tonight....

A fantastic card Sarita! The design is stunning as are the colours and wonderful ribbon treatment, it's perfection. I had a chuckle about your craft decorating, you're paying the price today with the aches and pains LOL! Hope to see some pics when it's all finished. Have a great weekend. Chris x

I adore this card Sarita. Love the vintage feel and colours! I can sympathise with the aching, as I ache also! But mine is related to an exercise class and not due to DIY!! :-)
Hugs, Vicky x

Well you kept to your promise Sarita, to make more of your own papers, I'm so impressed and will be having a go myself very soon! This card is beautiful and I love the colour tones! I'm glad your hubby roped you in with a bit of decorating, couldn't have him doing it all now could we, hee hee?!
Just to let you know my daughter has just started her own blog, so if you ever get a moment to take a peek at her cards I know she would be over the moon. Thanks so much! xx


Oh dear Sarita, caught red handed then!! well he certainly did get his own back on you hunny. YOu need a nice long soak in a hot bath! I love the card you've made its so loveley.
