one card 3 ways and a giveaway

Hi!

I've got a card to share today that drove me nuts! :) I couldn't decide whether to go sentiment free....


...or perhaps a little bakers twine action....


...or a simple sentiment...??!?


Which one do you prefer?? I have a confession...I prefer making sentiment free cards....I never know where to put the darn sentiment! :)
The little birdie with the gift is our latest digital stamp freebie (you can find them on the right side bar) and the owl is from our you're a hoot! stamp set!


Ok...on to my giveaway! :) Most of you know I took a break from my handmade buttons but I'm slowly getting back to them....I have a few left over from other projects/orders so I'd love to give them away!! I'm also THRILLED when I see them on cards that are published!!! Make sure to let me know...I may send you some more! :)

Leave a comment on this post and I'll randomly choose one winner on Monday!



Have a great day!

I've had those days lately where I could just NOT make a decision on how to finish my card!! I'm kinda with you - if I could do without a sentiment I would :)) Love your sweet buttons and would love a chance at these - thanks!

I'm so pleased you are getting back to making your unique and lovely buttons. Since you announced your rest I have been using mine soooo sparingly. I'll be watching out on Etsy to buy more.

Thank-you for this chance to win some

I kind of agree with you. Somehow when I make cards, it's usually with an idea of the image/design and then I'm searching for a sentiment that works with it. I really like the sentiment free one. And thanks for the chance to win some of those fabulous buttons!

these are all great cards. I think I prefer the one with the twine the best. I just like that little pop of red! Your buttons are amazing! Thanks for the chance to win.

Sentiment free was my favorite of the bunch.

I like the sentiment-free cards, too...just add it later on the inside when you go to use it!

I have been playing with this adorable freebie image...thank you so much! I even made a three-card set posted here at my blog:

I like the first one! Sentiment free!

Beth said...

Yeah! Glad you are getting back into them because your buttons are just a downright good idea! :) You sent me a few free ones with some stamps I ordered and I love them!

Jane, you've made my day!!

So glad that you are bringing your gorgeous buttons back...life is bright and shiny again x

Great to see how one element can change a card. I like the twine, but love the buttons. Great colours & shape :)

Michelle said...

I love the sentiment-free card, but that twine is so cute, too! Very hard to choose! Gorgeous colouring, as always, Jane!

Marion said...

I think I like the card with baker's twine the best. Sentiments can be hard to place - I agree! And I simply LOVE your buttons - it makes me want to learn how to make them. I have some of your buttons and I use them very sparingly! Thanks for a chance to win.

i l.o.v.e. buttons!! They're like gold in my collection (so valuable but so sparse). Can;t believe you make them!! Amazing! btw I like the twine card (reminds me of peppermint candy canes and old school barber shops--good stuff).

pcm said...

I like the twine :) and i'm so glad that i'm not the only one that doesn't quite know what to do with sentiments!

Mary-Anne V said...

I have the same problem sometimes and usually I leave the sentiment to last. I personally like the 2nd one with twine the best. Love the buttons ... just thought about how you made buttons in the past the other day. Thanks for the chance to win.

Julie E said...

Of course all three versions are great, I like the first though - super CAS and the little guys are the focus. I too could go sentiment free quite often.
Fun buttons!!! Thanks for the chance :>)

Okay,,,,LOVE the card and how fun to see it with different looks! sweet glittery action on the giftie:)

Your buttons are super cute! Love that they are on that FAB card!!!!!

Wee Von said...

Love the plain card! Well, not plain, but with just the stamps. I'm glad your getting back to making the buttons, they are so adorable.

Jane, your buttons are so fabulous!! It seems I semi-hoard things I really love but they add so much to my cards!! Love all of these cards but I'm going with the sentiment-free card too!!!

Kathy said...
