Week 576–buttons and/or bows

Good morning lovely crafters, I hope you’re all doing ok and managed to fit some crafting into your busy schedules last week.  Thank you for all your lovely entries for last week’s ‘anything goes’ challenge.  It was great to see so many gorgeous entries and as always the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs and seeing your creations.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who has won the $12.00 voucher courtesy of Bugaboo Stamps and we will also find out who Lorraine C. has chosen as her Top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Elaine from Team 2, and she has given us the theme of ‘buttons and/or bows’.  As the title suggests Elaine would like you to make something that includes at least one button or bow or if you’re feeling adventurous both buttons and bows.  It doesn’t have to be a physical button or bow, we will happily accept patterned paper, embossing or even die-cut versions of your buttons and/or bows. I’m sure most of you have some buttons and ribbons in a jar somewhere even if you don’t use them so much these days.  Don’t forget you can enter any type of creation it doesn’t have to be a card.  The only rule we have is that you have to use your markers, for example – Promarkers, Copics, Spectrum Noir, Karin Brushmarkers, Zig Clean Color Brush Markers to name just a few.

Our generous sponsor this week is All Dressed Up stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from their online store.  All of the DT have used images from All Dressed Up stamps on their creations this week.

The design team have worked their magic once again this week and have created beautiful cards to inspire you (please click on their names to visit their personal blogs):
