Buttons for Easter!

Good morning all

Hope you are all having a really "Good Friday" !

I am certainly happy to be here to share some news that I have been sitting on for a week or two now!

The lovely Nikki at bunny Zoe's Crafts offered me a place on the DT at

and of course I said - yes please!

So here I am with my first DT post for my new DT

The theme is 


and it so reminds me of Easter when I was little when it seems (in my memory) that all Easter Eggs had chocolate buttons in - or milk tray! don't see milk tray eggs anymore now when I think about it - and I'm sure those eggs were a whole lot thicker chocolate than the ones you get now   Why do chocolate Easter Eggs taste so much better than a bar of chocolate - someone told me just this week it's to do with the air inside the egg!!
 - well what can you say to that!

Anyway I digress....
Here is my card for this fortnights challenge at Wags ' Whiskers
and unfortunately the buttons aren't chocolate!

using the cute Toby's Big Day 
available here for Uk or here for US crafters

I decided to stick to fairly CAS for this card- just the cute image, the buttons and a few balloons!!

This is what I did....

Image - Toby's big day from Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamps
Coloured with Copics
Papers K & Co (a very old favourite that I keep buying again and again!)
Buttons - from a Docrafts pack 
Balloon punch - Martha Stewart
Stitched square die - Memory box
"3" - cut with Sizzix TH vintage market font
Circle dies - Spellbinders
Twine from my stash

I hope you'll join in with our challenge at Wags 'n Whiskers - see you there
