Buttons and Bows--Just Inklined September Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the September Blog Hop for Just Inklined!!!  If you are arriving here from the mega talented Peri Hill's blog you are in the right place.  If not you should go back to Toni's blog and start at the beginning, you don't want to miss a single project this awesome group of DT members has created for your viewing pleasure.  The theme for the Blog Hop is:  Buttons and Bows.  I have two projects to show you...it is so hard to choose a single image because there are so many to choose from.  Here are my projects:

I gave the Wishing Well a bit of a Vintage feel with the Tim Holtz mask, the strand of faux pearls and the aged ribbon.  The buttons in the upper right corner are from my Grandfather's button collection.

My next Buttons and Bows project showcases the newest freebie offered on the Just Inklined homepage.  Mummy is just perfect for the Halloween cards  you will be needing soon.  It is a big, fun, holiday here is the US.  Here is Mummy:

This was a fast card to create as there isn;t too much to coloring a Mummy LOL,  The image was punched out with the scalloped die cut and a Martha Steward spider web border punch was used to created the spiderweb ribbon backdrop under the main image.  I chose a teal polka dot ribbon ribbon to tie my key. The buttons are the 3 in the lower left hand corner and the dragonfly is a button as well.  Three dew drops in the upper right corner and my card is complete with buttons and bows.

I feel so honored the DT chose me as one of the Guest Designers for September and I am having a ball creating with the Just Inklined images.  Next blog on your Hop is the super talented Jak

Make sure you check out all of the DT projects and check out the Just Inklined store for all of the wonderful images available.  There is something for everybody!!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!!!
