Welcome to another Around the House challenge over at Everything But the Kitchen Sink!
This time we are challenging you to use buttons on your card...and not just the buttons you already have in your crafty stash. As the name implies, we want you to look through your house for extra buttons you have lying around and use those on your creation. So check your sewing kit, your junk drawer, etc. and see what you can find!
Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp! They have such a great selection...be sure to stop by and check out their website!
Now, I'm not a sewing kind of gal, but I am a pack rat, so I was able to dig through my assortment of buttons I've collected over the years to create this card...good thing I own lots of colorful button-down shirts!
I did a bit of paper piecing and added a googly eye to my elephant for a bit of extra fun. Oh, and my layout is Laura's Sketch 57.
So, ready to play along? Link up your finished creation on the EBTKS blog. You have until midnight CDT on Sun., Aug. 8 to be eligible for the prize. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
