Cute as a Button

Wow can you believe it's a New Year.. It doesn't seem like it could be possible.  I really don't know where the last year went..  

The first challenge of 2011 for Delightful Challenges is to use buttons!  I had so much fun with this little cutie.  The Digi Stamp is called Sweet Pea..
I used a SVG file and MTC to cut out the flower card.  The Card stock is from the Basic Brights collection by Provo Crafts.
I colored Sweet Pea with Bic Markers and Copic's.  Add the buttons and ribbon.  Finished off with the sentiment.   As it says.. She's As Cute As A Button!
Our wonderful sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamps  they are giving the winner of the challenge a $20 Gift Certificate  Please Check them out!

Over on Betty Bee Buzz we are making calendars.  Make sure you check out all the wonderful ideas!
For my calendar I had found this wonderful file from Annie Lang.  I really love her images and the calendar is to die for.  I printed it out on White CS and stacked all the pages together.  I used the Big Bite and punched three holes in all the pages at once.  I used the hole protectors so the holes wouldn't tear out.   I tied some pretty pink ribbon to tie them together.  I'm really excited about this calendar because I've decided I will be adding embellishment to each page as the year go on. 
For January I added some Snowflake Jewels and Stickles on the snow areas.

Here is a picture of all the months... If your interested in getting this file it is available from
 Annie Lang.  The file is a down load and it on sale right now for $2.99

Happy New Year

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited about the New Year!!!!  It's been an eventful last 3 weeks.  Between the Angel Tree, My computer dying, 2, yes I said 2 printers going down, Christmas and worst of all I got sick...  I was so sad I couldn't post this adorable New Years card on time.  But I have everything back to working and can't wait until Thursday when Digital Delights starts back up after our much appreciated break.  But I must admit.... I really missed it.. Crafts are my therapy and you can ask any one in my family... I need the therapy... LOL... Ok so here's my cute little guy..
It's Baby Boy New Year!!!!
I made the clock with a hybrid picture I found on the web.  My baby boy was colored with Copic's and Bic markers.  You can get Baby Boy New Year at Digital Delights. 
See you all on Thursday!
