Button Art

Good morning everyone....hope you had a great weekend!!! We actually had rain all weekend...We almost forgot what it looked like!!! Hopefully, it will rain all week, too, as long as the temps stay above freezing!! I finished decorating my Christmas tree and set out all the Santas...now I'm ready for Christmas cards. I may have time to bake some cookies later in the week...don't ya just love this time of year!!!! Anyway.....
it's my turn to host the TLC Challenge on Splitcoast and my challenge is Button Art.....make something Christmasy or Wintery using buttons!!  Some suggestions include:

1. Cover Santa's beard with buttons

2. Create a Christmas Tree with buttons
3. Make a wreath with buttons
4. Cover snow with buttons
5. Fill the inside of a poinsettia with buttons
6. How about a button snowman, buttons bells, button ornament, or buttons snowflakes
7. What ever your little heart desires!!

Remember, we are celebrating the Holiday season so be sure to make something festive!!!

The Rubbernecker Victorian Stocking #209-01 was colored with Copics, matted with Cameo Coral, and covered with glitter. Buttons were added to the bottom part and red pearls were added to the holly. The button, gold cording, lace, and ribbon finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Addicted to stamps Challenge - Christmas
2. Come and Get It Challenge - Christmas
3. Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge - Texture
4. Craft Your Days Away - Bows or Buttons
5. Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturdays Challenge - make a Holiday card

Thanks for stopping by....have a great Monday!!!
