Wee Memories Challenge 74

Hello!  Happy Saturday!  Can you believe that we are at the last weekend of October already?  :>  Today I am here with a new Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  This week we have a new sponsor Jay Gee's Nook!  Jay Gee's Nook is a little online shop in Australia!  She offers product that is new to Australia market at reasonable prices! 


This week our challenge is Brands, Buttons or Bows!  The 3 important B's!  You can create with all 3 or just one!


I decided to create with a bow.  Usually when I think of bow's I picture ribbon but I realized that I make bows with twine all the time!  I decided to make a sympathy card as I want to be prepared with them.  I used my go to color combo for it (because it's good for both men and women)



I stamped the envelope background by Hero arts in Antique Linen distress inks by tim Holtz, stamped the leaves over top from the With Sympathy set and embossed the sentiment!  Added some baker's twine with a bow to finish it off!

I have a cute story to share.  I was cutting Carter's nails after bath time and trying to keep him still so I was asking him questions and such.  I asked him how many fingers do you have?  Without missing a beat he says:  many!  I had a good laugh!  He is right but it wasn't the answer I was looking for!

I hope you will join us this week!  Please check out the Wee Memories blog for more info and to be inspired by my fellow design teams creations!  You have until Friday November 4th to play!
