Button Buddies1 fallButton Buddies is a  fun set and I love this flower.  I have used this set a lot and you can see some of the samples here, here, here , and probably one of  my favorites,  here.  You can also go to the left hand side of the blog and click on Button Buddies under the Categories and it will show you other samples I have made using this set.  

I usually like to combine the glimmer paper with a brad for the center of these cute flowers but to keep with the Mailable Monday thene i did not on this card.

I punched out a circle with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and glued it on the Champagne Glimmer paper.  Here's how the flowers look using the Basics Glimmer Brads.

Happy Easter Chick

Good morning!  Have you gone  to Craft Project Central  for your free tutorial?  If you have not, please read this post and get all the details.  

I am a little hesitant to show you this card because  I think it is missing something but I cannot figure out what it is yet.  Maybe I need to use my favorite TIEF and add some polka dot texture.  Just not sure what it needs.

Ink: Black Stazon, Watercolor Crayons, Tempting Turquoise and Real Red Stampin'Write markers
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Big Top Birthday DSP

Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain ribbon
Extras: Mini Silver brad, Dazzling Details (SU! finally has gotten some glitter glue!  Yes!  It is available in the Holdiay Mini Catalog.  This should make lots of people happy!)

The Big Top Birthday DSP is one of the Designer Series papers you can purchase with this months Buy 3 get 1 free promotion.  I know I will be getting another pack or 2!   Have a great Sunday and check back for another project from Craft Project Central!



Under the Big Top

It started with the Stripes TIEF, continued with the Perfect Pennants die, which led to the Big Top Birthday DSP and now Under the Big Top stamp set.  What can I say?  Here's a quick card using the Under the Big Top stamp set.

Here's what I did when I put this set together.

I cut the words away so I could use them seperately without having to use a marker.   I know I will be using the sentiments with other images and since there was room between the words and image I decided this would make it much easier. 

I have got to scoot.    I am having a downline meeting and I still have a few things I need to get done before they arrive.   Tomorrow is the very last day to sign up  with the $99 Demonstrator  Kit deal.   Being a demonstrator has enriched my life in so many ways.  Why not give it a try?  You can sign up on my website.  If you have any questions please give me a call.    Have a wonderful weekend!
