Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside.

Are you all singing along?? :D)
We have a nice easy challenge for you at Totally PaperCrafts this week - the lovely Sarah is our host and the theme is
Add Buttons
 I do like buttons, but I never quite know where to add them to my cards, so I can't wait to see your entries.
If you need a little inspiration, check out the wonderful work from my teamies over on the challenge blog.

I played it safe and added some mini buttons where you might expect to see them - on the door handles!
Wouldn't you just love to have one of these little huts by the sea? I can just imagine mine, all decked out in Cath Kidston florals, pretty china and gingham bunting!! :D)
These huts were a freebie from Little Musings and all the DPs are digis, from Pink Gem. The huts are all paper-pieced and the doors are popped up with foam pads. I used my comp. to write the sentiment.
I was really tempted to add some more gems, or buttons to the bottom right of the card, but I went for the simple look instead. :-))
