Buttons and Bows SECRET CRAFTER DT

Well helloooo there and a very happy New Year to you all.  Hope you all had a fandabby night and not suffering too much this morning.  I've had a lovely time with my family over the holiday period and spent yesterday watching telly and making cards.  I was however working last night unfortunately so this is a scheduled post.  I should by now be tucked up in the land of nod, at Jo's, my SIL, otherwise known in blogland as Crafting Joanne

I have my first blog post of the year and my first Design Team Card of 2011 - whoo hoo.  After a much appreciated break we have our first challenge of 2011 from the Secret Crafter Saturday.  This is a lovely one which I'm sure will be popular as its just perfect for all those stamps you stashed away when you started your stockpile of Christmas cards lol.

This week we want to see.................

"Buttons and Bows"

I dusted down my Penny Black stamps for this, they're so neglected this last year - definetly gonna use hem more in 2011.  I finally settled on these awesome hedgies - perfect.

I coloured with copics and promarkers from the Secret Crafter store.  I used an inverted woodware punch and a normal one. Also a MS border punch, also available from the store.  The ribbon and cardstock is from my stash.  The buttons are part of a caddy pack which I think is papermania.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge....
