It Is Hot On The Savanna

These look like happy lions, don’t you think? They are from Alota Stamps over at Sassy Crafts and it is a birthday card for a friend who likes his safaris. The papers are good old BasicGrey from the Off Beat collection and the buttons are from my favourite Buttons Galore. I don’t know what it is with me and buttons at the moment I am just besotted with them 🙂 A bit of distressing and a bit of sewing to finish the look.

I had started this card a couple of weeks ago and then set it to one side to finish later and completely forgot about it! Bless me! I only found it again after a bit of a tidy. I wonder what other projects I have half-finished dotted about the place? Maybe I need to do a big sort out? Mmm?
