Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge #23

Hi folks...oops I do hope it's not going to be another Mrs Numptie day...I've got the time wrong and posted this an hour head's been all over the place and I haven't been feeling too chirpy for the last few days...went off to bed feeling fine...woke up the next morning with a sledgehammer head...badger throat and a cough like a fog horn and is it any day it's Mediterranean sizzling with the doors and windows wide open...the next we're back in the Ice Age with the heating on but I think I've sent it packing with the help of Messrs Lemsip...Neurofen and gallons of honey and lemon...obviously the brain wiring still needs a bit of work but it's time I was back in the  cubbyhole before my furry crafty friend causes too much havoc.
The middle of the month already and time for this month's colour challenge over at The Ribbon Girls...aren't these colours delicious...I love Pink and Green together...
I've been delving into my Ribbon Girl box of delicious goodies...can you tell I have a bit of a button fetish...first using these gorgeous stamps from Tim very quick and easy...less is more...contemporary Christmas Card...

and something a little bit more vintagey...excuse the naked buttons but I'd stuck them down before I noticed and no way was I starting all over again...

As always there are fabulous prizes up for grabs from our chums at Lili Of The Valley...

 to spend in their online store where you'll find lots of gorgeous new Christmas goodies to tempt you
and from
The Ribbon Girl...
a yummy Green Mini Makes Kit...
For details on how to enter...pop over to The Ribbon Girls and check out the gorgeous makes from my lovely teamies and our guest designer for September...the very talented Alberto from Italy.
Did you know that tomorrow is the start of National Cupcake Week...I'll be sharing some yummy and calorie free Sizzix makes to celebrate.

  1. What a fab Christmas card Kath. I love the button card too although it would kill me to put so many gorgeous buttons on one card!! x

  2. These are both lovely cards. The pink and green Christmas card is lovely and the vintage button one is sew pretty and very full of lovely buttons. I don't blame you not wanting to start over with your naked buttons but I was wondering if this would work to dress the buttons. Use tied knots in some twine, trimmed neat then glued carefully on buttons and tuck ends in the holes with a pokey tool? Very "footery" but might work??

  3. Morning Kath, sorry that you have been feeling under the weather but it certainly has not affected your creativeness! I love your TH Christmas tree card, no matter what I do with that stamp in the set I can't get it right but I do love the other three. The dress form card is gorgeous, loving all those buttons ..... keep warm and well. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  4. Super cards but the second has to be my my favo Kath!!!!!

    Hugs, Irene

  5. The first one is lovely but the second one is GORGEOUS. Love this style of card, the dress form looks great. Oh dear, naked buttons, lol! Hope you feel better today.
