So Very Amazing

I created this card for Kazan's Sketch 32 over at 2 Sketches 4 You.



I used We R Memory Keepers papers. I also used my Nestabilities. The sentiment is a wonderful printable image from The Cutting Cafe'. It is from the Chunky Praise Phrases set. I detail cut the flower and the leaf cluster from the gorgeous patterned papers. I sewed on two adorable buttons. You can click on the card to see it larger. I'm very happy with the way it turned out!


Speaking of buttons . . . look at what I got yesterday! The girls and I walked with Princess to check out some garage sales in our neighborhood. I stopped at one, and the lady there had three large jars filled with buttons. She told me $2 for all three. Well, she didn't have to tell me twice! I snatched them up, and the girls and I came home, sorted through them all, cut the thread and fabric off of all of them, I washed the jars and lids, and then we put them all back in. There is a jar with black/dark buttons, one with cream/white/clear buttons, and the last jar is "other" whick includes all of the colors. I have to admit, the middle jar is my favorite, because the buttons are just GORGEOUS! So, I used two of my "new" buttons on the above card! What a garage sale jackpot! I'm in button heaven over here!

Just a reminder, today is FREEBIE FRIDAY over at Paper Popsicles! Check out the blog TODAY in order to get your FREE printable image!!

I hope you have a WONDERFUL Friday, a great weekend, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
