Is it really only Thursday? Cathy's WTUI challenge is buttons, beads and bows. I still have some paper beads left from Lyn's TLC a while back, but I'm not sure if I have time for crafting today. I'm getting wirhdwithd symptoms, I've barely been upstairs since Saturday.

Thanks Sabrina for grabbing the link! It wasn't up when I turned in after midnight. I hope you are able to get up to your craft room soon!

*******************

Just getting a chance to check in since I was out right away this morning. Kitty went back for a check up and still has quite an infection.
Buttons Bows and Beads is such a fun gallery! So many fun embellishments.

So let's hear when creating a card, what is your favorite of the three embellishments in today's challenge? Or do you like using all three?

I LOVE seeing buttons on cards. I don't like to use them because to make them look finished it's nice to have them threaded. 1st problem I struggle with getting thread/twine through button holes. 2nd problem, the bulk of attaching them. So I would rather LOOK at a card with buttons rather than create a card with buttons.

I don't think I have used beads except for the tiny seed beads as flower centers.

So I guess bows win. Again, I am not fond of the bulk for mailing so I don't use as much as I used to. I enjoy Baker's twine, ribbon, and natural twines.

Your turn! Tell us what you love to use!

Buttons win for me. I like bows, but I think that for ribbon bows, mailing can be even more of a problem than it is for buttons, unless you want them to look crushed. So twine bows I like, there's no problem with them.
I used to make a lot of bead embellishments - I need to get back to that some time...here's an early example in my gallery: Beaded owl trifold by Cook22 - at Splitcoaststampers

I trained myself not to mind much whether buttons are threaded or "naked", although I do agree that they probably mostly look better when they are threaded. A hot glue gun made a big difference to the ease of attaching them, too, for me.

That weird typo in my earlier post should have been "withdrawal symptoms". I haven't made a card since last Saturday. And I realised that I got a WTUI date mixed up and I'm hostessing next week, so I need to get a sample made for that, and our anniversary card which is coming up fast. Tomorrow, hopefully. It's been some week.

I hope kitty recovers soon - sick cats are miserable.

oh I totally agree neekid buttons catch my attention and I have a whole bunch of those itty bitty dress um up James ones that are like 1/4" size so the holes are microscopic...

( I now take a tiny black sharpie pen and draw a line connecting the dots...)
(sometimes the holes do not go all the way through those buttons.)

I like ribbon but, I am more a knot tying type than bows so, I would probably say buttons from the list too.

No MIX yet, but the F4A from Robin is to use washi tape: F4A482 May 17 Washi Tape - Splitcoaststampers

I like the way it looks layered behind a negative die-cut, and I remember being impressed with the gallery for Lyn's TLC with embossed washi backgrounds - cover a piece of card with strips and dry emboss.

If I had an unlimited budget, I think Eyelet Outlet have a fantastic range. But I'm wary of attracting customs and brokerage fees (I don't mind customs so much but you can't have one without the other) so that makes it easy to resist.

And the MIX from Anna is Pond Life - anything that says Pond Life to you so long as it's got more than one medium: MIX329 - POND LIFE (MAY 17 2019) - Splitcoaststampers.

I actually have her Whippersnapper set called Pond Life so I might see what I can do with that, or else use a die I received for my birthday. But it might not be today - I'm so tired that I walked out without my work ID and hi-vis this morning - and usually I check on my way out that I'm wearing them both.

Sabrina, I almost asked what the typo was and then I read the entire sentence and I figured out what you meant! I bet everyone who read it did too.

Thanks for posting the challenges.
I can't wait for life to give me a little break but today I had to take our car in for some emergency work. falalalalalalalala.........

Your beaded owl makes a darling card embellishment!

I hope the car is fixed by now, Angie. DH is meant to be ordering parts for ours but he still hasn't done it yet .

Stacy's sending us to Country Living online for the IC today. Even the header with the robin (??, not sure, as yours are different to ours) in the flowering tree is inspiring. But today I have GOT to make our anniversary card, DH's birthday card, and my WT sample, or at least get them all underway.

Here is the link to the IC!

Here is my question for the day. If you have had the chance to browse this week's site, did you look strictly for photos or did the captions catch your attention and did you read some of the articles? I read quite a few articles!

I hope everyone has a fabulous week.

Oh - ha. I'm obviously still working on autopilot, like leaving without my ID yesterday. I thought I'd posted the link - I grabbed it and then did nothing, evidently.

A couple of the gardening and food articles caught my eye - but I was looking on my phone while DH was still asleep, so I didn't actually read any of them.

I did I read a few and then I would glance at the comments some people left for people writing the articles and was dismayed by the rudeness. ( well, it was a little blunt and I tend to be blunt but, I also keep my mouth shut when I disagree too) so, I stopped reading the articles and just looked at the photos.


I am not sure about the header shot you seen Sabrina?

( I know Anita mentioned she see's spam so, I am not sure if she meant pop up ads?)
I did get one that says subscribe to some recipe thing and then when you try to turn it off it says something along the lines of keep wasting time and I just rolled my eyes and closed the box anyways...

hopefully people will be able to go poking around in there though, I was surprised by how often they seem to have new content.

I'm not sure about the header shot I saw either, Stacy; it was different when I went back later.

I got all of two cards made yesterday. When DH got home I said I'd been able to combine his birthday card with my challenge sample for this week, he just said " but you have another card to make for me first." It's the second time he's said that - he seems to be very anxious about his anniversary card this year!

Today's Featured Stamper is kerry2. I know I have seen some beautiful floral cards from her.

you know what? That is totally the sweetest that he is anticipating that you will create his card I am totally grinning from ear to ear here Sabrina.

and oh, yes I have been totally lost down the rabbit hole of Kerry's gallery so far. so many awesome details. I have not made a decision yet. ( and usually I can narrow it down faster than this)

TLC743 looks like a lot of fun! I may not get to try it for awhile as this is graduation week and things are a little crazy here. I can't wait to see the gallery!

Sabrina, you may have mentioned it already but I can't remember. What anniversary year are you celebrating? I agree with Stacy, it's very sweet that he is looking forward to your cards!

******************************

I really want to play in the CAS challenge this week. I love the look of black and white. Not that the CAS challenge is black and white but when I saw the challenge I thought of lined images with no coloring.

My questions for the day:

Are you attracted to uncolored images or do you feel they really must be colored?
For a NO coloring challenge would you rather use die cuts or stamps?
Let us know if you are playing along with one or both of the challenges today.

It's just a regular wedding anniversary, Angie - not even a special milestone one.

I do like the look of uncoloured line-art images. But because I love colouring, I only leave them like that when prompted by a challenge.

Still catching up on working up challenge posts and making samples. Next week I should finally have a little more free time...I did make a point of making a card to send Sandy over the weekend, carving out a little time upstairs. Today is going to be housework day, because I didn't get home till just before 8 last night.

ETA - I've just realised that I have a black and white image waiting to finish the sample for my upcoming EIONA TLC challenge on the first Monday in June. Which is funny, because the first time I featured the technique, I used a coloured image.

Today's sketch challenge looks like a fun one; it's designed to have a sentiment just above a person or animal image:

Sketch Challenge 750 {05/22/19} - Splitcoaststampers.

Phew, I got that anniversary card made yesterday, also one upcoming challenge sample and used the TLC to make a birthday card for my BIL. Today I'll be focussing on getting the EIONA technique challenge written up and finishing the sample for it.

At first glance that looked like a very busy sketch but the gallery has quite a few CAS cards in it. It's lovely!

Sorry - decided not to post links any more for a while except on PC as yesterday's took several hours before it wasn't an error for me.

Here's today's WT - books and/or marble inspired, with plenty of links to check out. And only looking at the gallery today I remembered I even have a marbled background stamp. I chose to make a book card and use some marbled paper I got about 15 years ago (not real marbled, just printed, but still pretty).
