3 Buttons Challenge over at The Town Scrapper!

Good Friday morning everyone! You ready for the weekend? I am, woo hoo!

Today over at The Town Scrapper is the start of another fun challenge. This weeks challenge is called 3 Buttons Challenge! Thats it, plain and simple, just incorporate 3 buttons (no more, no less) into your card creation. Here's my sample:I used the brand new Victoria Case stamp Evan which is now being sold exclusively at the Town Scrapper! There's more adorable stamps being released so stay tuned for some sneek peeks in the near future!

I personally love these stamps because the little Evan boy reminds me of my son. He is much older now, these pictures were taken a few years ago....sigh! Where does the time go?

I better move on before I abandon this post to run and grab my son's scrapbooks for a trip down memory lane....(you all know what I'll be doing this

I stamped Evan onto Bella's Bestest Paper (my fav) and coloured him in using my copics!

I always struggle with masculine cards, so the button theme worked out well! What a great Father's Day card this stamp makes! This card is pretty simple, all the paper, buttons etc...was from my stash drawer (that I'm always trying to whittle down).

We would love to see your 3 button creations, be sure to swing by The Town Scrapper and link up your card for your chance to win a great little prize!

Another Note:

Phebe at The Town Scrapper is hosting a super Fundraising Event on March 27th, 2010 in Petrolia Ontario. This cardmaking event will run from 12:00 to 4:00 pm. She has planned three separate demos with three of her brand new Victoria Case images! The Demos will include watercoloring by Phebe, and copic demonstrations by Melanie and myself. I can't wait to see these ladies in action, their techniques and colouring are amazing! As I'm NOT copic certified I will just be sharing how I colour with my copics, and what works best for me. I am looking forward to having lots of fun, meeting new people and making some great cards! If you are interested, please contact Phebe as she only has a few spots left! Looking forward to seeing you there!

Well thats it for today's post, have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
