Slowing Down

This week has just been way too crazy for me but it's finally starting to slow down a bit!  I didn't have time to even think about a Funny Friday - in fact, I didn't really have time to even consider any type of card.  So, I thought I'd show you one that I'd done before life got so crazy.  I finally got in my craft area yesterday and got a couple completed but wasn't able to get any photos due to a gale force wind blowing around here.  When it's 100 plus weather and the wind is blowing, it does NOT cool off any either!  LOL!


Nothing special.....just circles, buttons, embossing, and twine.  I left off the twine on the white button to make it a little different.

Thanks for stopping by..........and hope everyone has a good weekend.

Too cute, Lynn! Those colors just pop on the clean white background and I love the little button accents. Hope you are staying cool...this Texas heat is getting out of hand. Although we did get storms last night...did you see any of that rain? It was a very welcome sight, for sure! :)

This reminds me of a toy we made when we were kids with some string and buttons. We would twirl the buttons on the string. Did you do that? Ours were never this colorful and fun! I enjoyed the memory and the bright colors, Lynn.
