Peachy Keen Challenge #59..(with a twist this week)!

Oh what a lot of wonderful projects you all entered over the last two weeks at Peachy Keen
It was a pleasure to look at them all!
I'm sure that you will be just as creative THIS time too.

Here's your sketch...
Easy? Of COURSE it's easy! we want this to be FUN, not torture! lol
Now! The twist.... You must use BUTTONS somewhere on your creation.
There, how easy is that!

Here's what grabbed me this time.....

Front view

Side view
Doncha just LOVE that snowman!! I'm totally smitten with him and work him to death! lol
As you can see, this is an easel card with a Christmas theme. (My first one this year)!

Aren't those papers amazing! It's a K&Company pad called 'Yuletide'. I LOVE the papers. 
They are really heavyweight and the patterns are SO classy.
They are almost as nice as my snowman from  PK-329 'Chill Baby Chill'.

Now for the rules....
Create a card with the sketch and use BUTTONS somewhere on your project. 
(Peachy Keen Stamps are not required to participate, but if you've got 'em...flaunt 'em)!
Design must be new
Must include elements of the twist (buttons) somewhere in your project
Link up by 9/5 - 11:59 pm CDT (5-59am 6th Sept. BST).
Please hop on over to the Peachy Keen Blog for all the details and to see what this week's prize is!
AND, you will get to see THE most wonderful DT samples while you are there!
WAIT!! There's MORE!! Our guest designer is a true friend of Peachy Keen, GLORA!!
Wait 'till you see what she is creating for you this week! You will be delighted!

I also promised to draw a winner from THIS blog post today, and so without further preamble...
(I told hubby to give me number between 1 and 16, so Patti, you can thank my hubby for your stamps)! lol
Congratulations! Please e-mail me your details and I'll get your stamps sent off to you.

Ok, I'm off to see if I can persuade my lovely little snowman to do a bit more work.
Have a great week!
