Button Doll Card

Saturday, 2 February 2008 - - 5 Comments

Rosie A Friend of mine last week while we was nattering away, told me about Button Dolls, I never heard of them before, So i went over to her blog had a look, and her work was Super...
So i went over to the other blog where she had joined in that challenge that said week, and i had a look on there at how to do Button Dolls. Well i was so impressed i said to myself i want to do one!

But with not being well and myself this week with a few things that have happened @ home, I kinda of stopped crafting.

Then on i received a message from a friend which made my day cheered me up no end made me giggle lots.. But i didn't feel right still so never replied, She has been giving me alot help & support in a matter that has made me feel so ugg the last 2 weeks.

Well last night i was feeling more myself a bit, and was going to write her an email explaining all my news etc,
and to say how i feel bad for ignore her last few emails etc

Instead i thought no i wont do that! i will make her a card but not just any card a Button doll card!

So i made this card




It isn't perfect as im not really into doing things like this normally as i find it takes alot of "creative juices" which i don't feel i have that much of, But I'm pleased with it anyways
And i just hope she likes it when i send it to her on Monday

The white circles with the ???? on , i edited on photoshop, as the beads used actually have her name spelt out on them and i didn't want " her" to find out the card was going to her before she actually receives it , Id like it to be a surprise

Just hope she doesn't guess i am on about her here lol

This post prob sounds so strange to most of you sorry about that but im finding it hard not mentioning her name lol

The bits i used to make this card was:
Pinstriped cardblank ( from my wedding invites stash , thats another story!)
Chipboard accent ( cant remember where from)
Beads from stash
Buttons from stash
Copper craft wire from stash
Silver padded fabric wings from stash
Dovecraft Bottle Cap
Photo corners-Once upon a time ,Die Cut Embellishment pack
Anitas 3d Clear Gloss
Paper-K&Co Paper stack (K-ology)
Image of Boy - was from a magazine , as i dont own any images/stamps like that YET!!!! (i have stock coming with lots of stamps like this , Wooohoo!!!!)
