CYDA - For A Child

Good morning!  Its another new challenge over on Craft Your Days Away with a brand new theme that is 
Just For Children
This fortnight we are sponsored by 
They are giving our lucky winner 7 didgi image from their online store of their choice.

This fortnight I chose not to use a bugaboo image but one that I have had for a while and have been desperate to use.  This little monster is a digi stamp now I want to say its pollycraft but I will have to find out the details so if you would like to know where its from please give me a shout.

The papers are a freebie from one of the mags but they seem to be my fav at the mo. 
He is coloured with pro markers and the wording is hand stamped by me.

So if you have some thing in mind for a child this fortnight and it doesn't have to be a card then pop on over to craft your days away and enter it into the challenge!

Button Swap

Last month I signed up to a fab Button swap over at Noodlebubble Niceblog the idea was to swap 50 buttons with your partner whom NoodleBug
had set you up with.

I was partnered up with Kate whose blog is called Helter Skelter

and these are the lovely buttons I received
.I love each and everyone of them especially the little flowery/butterly wooden ones!

Now I would like to say I have a photo of the buttons I sent to Kate
But unfortunately I cannot for the life of me find the picture I must have stored it some where!
My selection included novelty buttons some Christmas some small some big, some hello kitty  union jack heart and other union jack themed buttons plus a few others too, I couldn't stick to the 50 and went just over but I am pleased to say my partner loved them!
