I love Buttons!


I finally did it

What you ask?

Mailed out my Christmas Cards which had turned into my New Year's Cards and I suppose now they are my Valentine's Cards... To bad I had enclosed a family photo collage titled "Frederick Family 2010", I could have played it off and said that I was just early for next Christmas ;o)

This card set was created for my Grandmother.
She actively blesses the elderly shut ins, ill, and grieving members of her church with hand written notes.
What a wonderful ministry!



CHALLENGES I USED:
Corrosive Challenge: Button it up
My Time to Craft: Emboss (hopefully you can see that I embossed the first, large layer of DP)
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Whateva (you do have to stamp something)
Dutch Dare Card Challenge: Buttons, Buttons Buttons
Paper Play: Stamp It Out
Pile It On: Punch It (I used the ticket corner punch)
..............Supplies I used.................
Stamps: Paper Trey Ink
Papers: Stampin Up (patterned papers), Paper Trey Ink (white)
Ink: Momento, Stampin Up (markers used on the flower in pot, real red on bicycle)
Buttons: Paper Trey Ink, some are from my stash
Toons: Stampin Up (embossing folder, ticket corner punch), Spellbinders Nestabilities (labels 4 & scalloped ovals)

Ohhh a girl after my own heart. I'm not much of a stamper, but I am in LOVE with this set from Papertrey Ink! I have yet to purchase any of their stamps, but after probably a year of drooling, I guess it's safe to say I'm not losing interest. These are just precious!
