Sweet as sugar

Ooh naughty blogger here hasn't posted in a few days - sorry! I spent all morning battling with weeds in the garden so this afternoon  managed to smuggle in a spot of crafting and made this:

It's a new stamp to me and I decided it was time she got some ink! I've used two die cuts and copics, but everything else is by Stampin' Up! I love how their stuff seems to go with everything else I have. The sentiment stamp is from a brand new set in the limited availability mini called Something Sweet.

The buttons are clear and I've just punched out patterned papers (sweet pea and chocolate chip) in the same size and attached with linen thread. So fab to make buttons to go with anything you like. Card I've used is chocolate chip, pixie pink and barely banana.

I coloured around the edge of the circle using a dauber and pretty in pink ink. So being me it's time to enter some challenges:
Well I'd better go as hubby has been cooking and dinner smells yummy and I'm hungry!
