THIS Week's DDC and Anne's Crocheted Flower!!

Supplies: Basic Grey Infuse DP, SU Scallop Punch, SU Sizzlet Swirls Scribbles die, Cuttlebug die (sentiment), misc. buttons

Hey All!

(I've tried twice to upload to SCS tonight but nothing happens, anyone else having that problem? Maybe they're trying to tell me something...??!! :)

This is my card for this (may I emphasize THIS) week's DDC!! I rarely get my DDC done in the current week, let alone on the same day (night) it was issued!! But I have been so stamp deprived recently that I am just craving a good challenge!! (Been gone for almost a week to NM for a family wedding.) And this is definitely a fun challenge to get back in the groove!

Our fabulous FRAN aka Fancie's Fancy (dontcha LOVE that blog name??!!) hosted the DDC this week. She challenged us to make a card with at least one button. My card has three sizes of buttons and I got to use this perfectly crocheted flower that the supremely talented Anne Harmon (aka Inking in Red) made and sent me (I got a whole baggy, folks, who's the man???!!! WOOT)! I love my little flowers....but alas, I digress...

I die cut the sentiment from a Cuttlebug die, and I apologize that I do not know the name of it, but it came with my Butterflies EF set from Cuttlebug. (Can you tell it's the first time I've used it!?)

The Background papers are from the Basic Grey 6x6 Infusion DP pad. I used a technique/layout by KWerner Designs that I watched last night on YouTube. You can find it here called: Diagonal Rays.

Please join us in this fun challenge so we can come visit YOUR blog!! Leave me a comment to let me know and we'll get over there!! If you upload (or try!!) to SCS, use Keyword DDC so we can find you.

Be sure to check out the other Doubledog Dare blogs (shown on my sidebar) to see more of the cards made for this fun challenge!!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Ok - so what you are telling me is that Anne sent YOU some crocheted flowers and she DIDN'T give ME any???? well - someone is going to get a complaint about that big time!!!! I SO want to learn how to make those - my dear mother (now in heaven) crocheted and I know she would have been able to tell me how to make them - I have a pattern and everything but haven't had the time to sit down and try them..... this is card is just so pretty Anne! love the button over the flower!
