Heartfelt Thanks

City Crafter Challenge Blog     CCCB113-Buttons, Buttons... at least 5 buttons
Shopping Our Stash     SOS 55- Double The Ribbon

Today has been a day with lots of general living chores, so I have only managed to get this one card done.
As you can see I'm entering it in two challenges. On the ribbon challenge you could use more than one ribbon or cording, but I could only manage to get the cord and tiny striped ribbon to look good. I didn't want it to cover up my button heart.
Riding Hood Red and Whisper White paper cut out with my new Framelits-Hearts from Stampin' Up. I doubled the red card stock and put the largest scallop heart just above the fold to get the card base. The rest of the hearts in the set are just plain, but that works for me. I cut the base for the buttons, which I raided out of my very old button jar,  out of red card stock with the second from the smallest heart in the set then glued them on with Tombow glue. I painted a silver tiny brad with a White Sharpie Paint Pen and when it was dry I dotted it with a fine tip red Sharpie marker. The dots are a white gel pen around the edges.  I stamped and heat embossed the Thanks on red card stock with Whisper White ink and White embossing powder, tore around the edges and attached to the larger heart. Dots and dashes are a red fine tip Sharpie marker and the heartfelt stamp is from the same set as the Thanks (retired Stampin' Up).
So as you can see as you read this I have raided my stash for old and new supplies to put together this project. 
My studio is so full I could probably craft for a year without having to buy anything new, but then the new trends would pass me by and I would think I was missing out on something. I keep telling my hubby I've got to stay currant and he just smiles and says you know you're just crazy for new stuff.

Happy Creating--
