Four Challenges, one card!!

This one is for four challenges
By the Cute and Girly - who require something old - the thread (about 5 years), something new - image, something borrowed - the tutorial on WOJ for making buttons, something blue - the papers and more.
Simon Says - a recipe - 1 image, two patterned papers and three types of embellishments, the buttons, the leaves and the ribbon.
One Stitch at a Times - Boys to Men



I coloured my little Hanglar boy with distressinks. The papers are the Checks & Paids set from Donna at Bearly Mine Designs - perfect for 'boy' cards.I stamped the edge of the papers with the edge of a corner stamp from the Prima Build a Frame set and the corners of the image with a corner stamp from Basic Grey. The border is cut with a MS punch and I made the buttons from a tutorial at Whiff of Joy tutorials. Can someone please tell me - do glossy accents 'go off' because this has dried somewhat lumpy and hasn't done this previously, or perhaps it'g the sticky heat here today. I shall do some more and try putting them in the fridge. Just had a thought whilst writing up this post -  cracked it - covered them with clear nail polish -  that's got rid of the lumps and bumps - just have to wait for that to dry now!! The leaves I've added are from my stash.
Distress Inks used
Skin   -   Tattered rose, Antique linen
Jeans  -  Faded jeans
Top  -   Peeled paint
Hair & shoes  -  Vintage photo


Now it's back to knocking the tiles of one of my kitchen walls - knocking chunks out of my fingers as well, still not much to go!!

Gorgeous, gorgeous card Heather. Just love your Hanglar boy. I was unfortunate not to get any of these stamps and have been wanting them ever since. I might have to butter you up for an image or two ;o) !!

Love your layout and your homemade buttons, they look fantastic matching the hearts on the image.

Hope you are OK ? We must catch up and have a natter sometime. Seems so long since the NEC, the next one is just around the corner !

Take care my darlin and speak soon, and oh yes, thank you for joining us at Simon Says Challenge this week !

Hugs,

Jo and the Simon Says Challenge DT x

Hi, Sweet Heather! I have not had time to check blogs for a couple of weeks and I have missed you :) I am barely playing FB games as well; I just try to accept & send gifts, but I haven't even been doing that daily either. I have my "To Do" list, and visiting blogs is getting checked off today. Your cards always make me happy!
