Boat-Load of Buttons…

So…last week was rough (any week in which you are repeatedly googling medical terms usually is)…but I feel that a corner has been turned and things are going to get better. (At least that’s what I’m telling myself!)

I was able to make some cards yesterday, though, which certainly improved the mood. What do you think?

The new Everyday Button Bits stamp set from Papertrey Ink is fab…and I’m having a blast actually USING some of those buttons I’ve been hoarding.

Ok, so true, the last one doesn’t have any buttons…in all honesty, I actually made it about a month ago. But it’s been sitting here on my desk (yes, I have a recipient in mind), so I decided to throw it into the photo shoot.

Supplies? I bet y’all can figure them all out…but if you can’t, just give me a shout-out. Most of ’em are from PTI.

Thanks for looking…

Peace out


Some new cards

Here are some new cards that will be going in the shop in the next couple of days:

The ol’ bloggo has sort of fallen by the wayside, what with those pesky kids being such the time-consuming things they are. No sworn vows or anything, but I’m hoping to be better about posting.

Oh, and card supplies: patterned paper mostly from the BG Ambrosia neat-o 6×6 pad and the brown is from Offbeat, with some bits of Scenic Route (the little leaves) and Cosmo Cricket (the blueish lined paper) and the blue with white polka dots in from My Mind’s Eye Breaking Free line; buttons from BG; cardstock, ribbons and inks are all Papertrey Ink; stamps from Paper Source, Hero Arts (the cursive ‘hello’) and Inkadinkado (the ‘Happy Birthday’)…*phew*…I’m sure there’s something I forgot…

HaveĀ  a great day…and thanks for reading…

Last day in Carlsbad

It’s another sunny day and the kids want to stay longer.
