Mother Button, Son of a Basket Challenge

And how's THAT for a title!? LOL We had so much stinking fun at CHA. I LOVE those girls, and even though we only see each other once a year, it feels, when I'm with them, that we've known each other forever!

Well, while we were wondering around the show floor, we hit the PTI booth, well, let's just say, more than once. We kept enabling eachother and talking eachother out of certain sets, and this was one of the ones that I lost the inner battle on. Since we spent so much money, but yet, didn't have all that we wanted (who could?!), the sets (such as Dawn's beautiful Damask set) started to become a sort of curse word! Not because we didn't like it, but because we didn't WANT to like it! Get it??

Well, that only grew from there, as it normally does, and then we started to think up MORE "fake" curse words that sounded more papercrafty, than vulgar! LOL Hence this title.

Now onto the card. As I mentioned, I didn't buy this set till the last second because I kept telling myself that I didn't NEED it, but after a couple of the girls decided to do a challenge with said set, Joanne and I found ourselves back in the booth with this set in our hands so that we could play along. {Sigh.}

This is Vintage Picnic, and I also used Polka Dot Basics. My PP is Little Yellow Bicycle. I love the colors, especially with the Craft. The ribbon is PTI, as is the linen thread. Flower is Heidi Swapp, and the button is MFT.

The two letters in front are cut out of another piece of paper, making them dimensional, and of course, the basket is paper pieced.

So, now that you've seen mine, make sure that you go and check out theirs! ;) The girls (SUPERSTARS, really) playing along are Joanne, Carole, Christina, Amy, and Leigh. I KNOW that you'll love whatever they've cooked up, so don't miss them!!

Now I'm off! Be back soon with some MFT!



  1. Damask, that is one adorable card!!

    I bet Matt and Sherry would love it, too! ;)


  2. LOVE it Kirsten! The colors are so fresh and fun - very very cool!! :)

  3. Kirsten! This is THE perfect little card. Everything about it! REALLY! You are a master. I had my eye on those polka dots and then they were sold out so now I'll have to order them too. This is just a gorgeous card...the pp, the perfectly tied bow {now, how do yo do that?!}, the HS flower...the simplicity of design makes it a true classic. Let me know if you need my address cuz this might need to come and live with me!

  4. Oh, how cute! You made me laugh! CHA sounds like so much fun. Love your card lots!!

  5. Way, way, way stinkin' cute!!! LOVE that DP, and every detail is perfection! You knocked this one out of the park, Kedster!

  6. Yeah, our great minds were thinking alike with the envies! Love your dots and plaid mix, and great use of that clear flower--I have a bunch of them that I can never seem to put in the right place!

    So great meeting you, too!


So what do you think?
