Just a Note

Hi Guys!
So do you feel any older now that we're in 2012?  I don't.  Well maybe a few days older. Practicing immaturity always helps. lol
Speaking of which, this week at The Catered Crop we are being sponsored by the fabulous Jellypark! Yay! In case you're not familiar with Claire's images you should check them out. Jellypark is the first stopping ground for getting in touch with your inner child. Her images are so quirky and fun.
So, without further delay, the recipe swap this week at the Catered Crop is:

And you all know how much I loooove buttons!
So why, you may wonder,  do I only have one button on my card if that's the challenge and I love them so much?
Well  psssst...come here.  I'll let you in on a little secret. I got so engrossed in my cardmaking I forgot what challenge I was working on til I finished it. Thankfully I happened to have a little button on there but by now I had busied my card up so much I didn't want to over clutter with yet more plastic madness.

Image: Jellypark
Papers: Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl" and October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker".
Colors: Lyras and Prismas on Kraft cardstock
Button: Sew Sweet
Flower: scavenged
Clip: from stash

So I hope you all can join in on our challenge this fortnight!
See you around Blogland!

Immaturity rocks! Well for a forty something who proudly still collects Smurfs I have to agree!!
Great work as always Dorcas.

I mentally stopped ageing at around 24 years - the fact that my daughter is catching me up is immaterial! LOL. So yes, I will be 24 again next birthday - if only parts of my body were in agreement with that. LOL. Another great card, Dorcas.
