3/22 - A Three in one Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!

Boy, do I have a post for you today!   I'll be showing creations for two DTs & a GDT!
  1. Digital Tuesday Challenge - use buttons!   
  2. Doodle Pantry's New release & Challenge - sketch!
  3. Tuesday Throwdown Challenge - anything BUT a card!
Here we go...

Stamps: Squigglefly digi (ruler)
sentiment: SU! about time set
Papers: Making Memories dp
Other: buttons from my button jar, 
vintage seam binding.

I really had fun distressing this baby!  Button cards are quite popular right now, this one's from the graphics fairy.  I printed the ruler on cream paper then crinkled & sponged it!

Next I have a NEW release from Doodle Pantry, a beautiful set for Easter.

Stamps: Doodle Pantry (He Is Risen)
Papers: MemoryBox, K&Co, & shimmery silver cs
Ink: Copics
Other: gray satin ribbon, SU! boho punched flower,
MS pearl, Nesties.

The Doodle Pantry challenge is a sketch (which I didn't use) and you may use any image this time!  You have two weeks to play along, so I hope you'll join us!

Next I have my GDT creation for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge.  My hubby helped out with this one!

Stamps: Sugar Creek Hollow digi (Ladies Frock together)
Papers: Memory Box dp, K&Co dp
Other: MS around the page punches,
flowers (Modern Romance), Kaisercraft pearls

Isn't this a darling little project?   I might add some bling randomly around the background yet, to add a little pizazz!

Quite the variety today, huh?
So, let's re-cap!
