Losing Buttons to Today's Project



Welcome to my little world of craft puddles! I'm so glad you are joining us here on the hop with Buttons Galore and More, because you can't go wrong with a these embellishments! 


I had a lot of fun creating my project for today using an assortment of buttons that I picked up at my local Craft Warehouse. Why? Because I actually lost the fabulous assortment I received from the folks at Buttons Galore and More!

I'm doing an overhaul of my art studio and those little buttons are somewhere lost in the mess. :) I was so happy to remember that I bought a box of their Haberdashery buttons locally and I called my store to see if they still carried them. BOY, did they and there were so many to choose options. In the end I bought to awesome collections (Scary and Citrus).

Before we move on to how I made my card today I wanted to make sure you knew that our hop is all week long and that there are prizes! You can see all the details every day this week over on the Stampendous blog. Be sure to go back every day for new blog hop lists and more inspiration!

  2. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS card!!!
    LOVE your tree and how you have decorated it with the pretty buttons!!!
    I have two confessions, one is that I put crafty treasures aside in a "safe place" but all too often FORGET where that "safe place" is, so I can totally relate to your buttons hiding while you're sorting your stash!!! The other is that I have three sets on the top of my shopping list for the Craft Show I'm going to this weekend and it includes the Pop Up, Create A Christmas and Create A Poinsettia sets => THANK YOU for the INSPIRATION :)
