Hello wednesday - button heart

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!
There must be something in the air or water at the moment.
I have never had so much crafting energy - the ideas are flowing, my fingers are busy most evenings, fiddling with something.  I even designed a string of NEW ribbon kits last week.  So I am making the most of it before it dries up!!!
I have been looking for a pair of red shoes for ages, well actually driving Tony mad about them.  I must have been in every shoe shop we have passed, here and in France for weeks.  Well, I found some on Saturday while out with Rachie, Mollie and Sydney, we were having a bit of a crafting day.  They are perfect, just what I wanted, and so comfy.
Anyway I wore them yesterday, Rachie was helping to hold a Macmillian coffee morning and we were invited. But although the shoes looked wicked I did not have a red brooch for my demon jacket.  Pink yes, blue yes, purple yes but no red.
Ta dah!

So I made this in a jiffy yesterday morning.

Since then, Mollie saw it at the coffee morning and asked for a pink one - made yesterday afternoon.  Sydney took at shine to it and asked for a turquoise one - made last night.  Then Rachie decided she fancied a red I cut the heart out and gave her the buttons and ribbons and bits and told her to make her own!!!!!  Which she did at Blandford's Craft Club (run by Janet) last night.

Phew, so for a quick idea to jazz up my jacket to match my new red shoes, everybody will be wearing them soon.

What colour would you make?  Leave us a comment and I will pick a few winners on Friday and send you all the ribbons, a handful of buttons, and a brooch pin all you will need to add is the felt and thread. Magic.

Some other fab news - Lorraine one of our Design Team girls is also a cover girl this month!
