For You

foryou

Hi friends!!  It’s a new week and I think it will fly by!!  I start my preparations tonight for report card writing.  I won’t bore you with the details…except to say that Moe will be one happy camper in a week!  LOL  Today’s card is my take on this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge.  This is the second take of this photo…the first one was pretty crazy.  The large yellow button had quite the glare going on with all the light tent lights, so I had to turn one light off.  MUCH better!!  I love these little gingham paper patches and those HUGE buttons!!  This is the perfect way to get rid use them up ;)  I hope this card brings you a smile today like it does to me :)  Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Love those little gingham boxes - and the buttons are perfect! Fabulous use of the thread and such a fun sketch. Great inspiration for my Monday morning, Moe!

Darling gingham patches and what a great way to use up big buttons (big SU butterfly is the other). Good luck prepping for report cards. Just think, in 3.5 weeks you will be free as a bird - I'm jealous LOL! Have a great day. BTW, my daughter is greeeeeen with envy that you have an iPad (she was near the computer and read your comment when I had it up). Enjoy learning about it.

Oh such a sweet and charming idea for this sketch...this would make a great design for a whole set of notecards, Maureen! Will totally keep this tucked in my memory for a great use of gingham AND big honkin' buttons, hee!

Oh what a fabby take on that sketch, Diva! A great use for those biggie buttons that hoard all the space in my jars blocking access to my sweet li'l ones (not that I don't love the big ones of course, I just struggle to use 'em!)
Hugs!
