Sweet and simple with Sherryann Eckblad



My guest today is Sherryann Eckblad of Button Junkie.  Sherry has a really sweet and simple cardmaking style that truly has timeless appeal. Her trademark? Those beautiful handmade flowers on her creations! :) She has a really simple challenge for us and a lovely RAK for one random participant. You have to read on to find out more! :)

Let's admire her gallery first, shall we?


__________________________________________________

I am so honored to be chosen to be Yvonne's Guest Blogger and when she first asked me I was not sure I should do it. After some consideration I thought what the HECK just do it.


My name is Sherry but here in blogland I go by sherryann which is what my family calls me. I live in Minnesota with my husband Joe, son Justin and a green cheeked conure parrot named Birdie. I have been making cards and scrapbooking off and on for about 10 years and only in the last year have I got into blogging and posting my creations.

If someone were to ask me my favorite style I would say it is Clean and Simple and sometimes a little vintage. I love making flowers and you will find them on a lot of my cards and layouts. I was asked to think of a challenge so I am going to challenge all of you to create a card or layout using handmade flowers. Here is a simple tutorial that I found on the internet for making the spiral roses.

Please stop by my blog (www.buttonjunkie.blogspot.com) and say hello and leave me a link to your creation as I would love to see it. I will offer the winner of this challenge some of my handmade wrinkle ribbon.

Are you ready to play along with Sherryann's handmade flowers challenge? Please link up your creations using InLinkz (located at the end of this post) by Friday 22nd October.

As always, please leave a little love for my guest Sherry. :)
