Who's Got the Button!


Now if all these bright colors don't wake you up for the rest of the week, nothing will!!  That, and the fact that I again posted TWO cards in one day!  Pretty scary if you ask me!

I recently won some wonderful blog candy from Ronnie over at So Many Stamps, So Little Time and a whole slew of fabulous buttons were included in the package!  So right now, I have A LOT of buttons.  I know this is a very simple card - no coloring or anything fancy at all, but it made a really quick card that I'll have on hand for another birthday.   And just typical of this week (and actually last week too) I got this entire card finished, took the picture, added the watermark, and posted it up here......and THEN noticed that the little flower behind that pink button is missing a petal!  UGH......!
Oh well........I never said I was perfect!

Hope you're having a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

This is a really fun card Lynn. I love to see all the creative ideas people have with buttons. (I would have never noticed the petal!) :)

OOOhh, I love this!! You just gave me a wonderful idea to use some of my grandma's vintage buttons that still have the threads in them where she cut them off of garments. Of course, I would never be able to part with them, so maybe a shadow box!!
Thanks for the inspirations Lynn!!
Hugs~

Very clever use of buttons Lynn. I love the card but you shouldn't have mentioned the missing petal, no one else would have noticed.

Karen said...

Fun and cute card Lynn. I didn't even notice the missing petal until you mentioned it. This would be a great guy card.

Hi Lynn: Thank you for your generous comment today. I love your cards; they are very ecclectic and fun! The comic ones are so cute and the coloring is spectacular. Some of your cards are so elegant, some so cuddly cute and other's just plain rich and blazingly outstanding. It was my pleasure to spend some time here with your art. Thank you for that gift!
