When Less Is More isn't

Morning all, what are you up to today?  I'm patiently waiting for a bacon roll, and will then settle down to watch the German Grand Prix and a bit of cross stitching.  After that it'll be off to the craft space to play for a while and watch the final stage of the 2011 Tour de France, and then dinner and a dose of Top Gear.  Feels like the perfect day!

Oh the shame of it, I missed last week's LESS IS MORE challenge.  I just could not find any inspiration for it so sorry to Chrissie and Mandi.  But I'm back with an entry for this week's Recipie challenge of Button or Ribbon.

Now, the challenge is in the singular - Button - not Buttonssssssss so I may get my wrists slapped for this one (even though it does mention plurals on the challenge).


I've used two Magnolia stamps - the tree and the presents - and a Penny Black sentiment.  Then I got carried away with decorating the tree with the contents of my button box. 

Hugs, Sxx

Gorgeous card Squirrel! You can never have too many lights on a xmas tree!

Just have to add, Ive snooped over your cards below too and each is just so beautiful! I fell in love with the LotV ted in the cardboard box - your colouring is inspirational!

I was toying with this idea too. But buttons are in short supply as I don't DO cards with buttons! Great card and well executed.

Squirrel said...

Oh I LOVE that! I may have to try something similar although I haven't got a tree quite like that. Inspirational!

We have grown-up Christmas trees in our back garden in the west country which the squirrels love. I miss them.
