Hello Buttons - Hello Glitter

It's a rainy, over-cast day here in Las Vegas.  But that didn't stop me from creating.  I've been working on all kinds of goodies - vintage houses, Christmas treats and mini books - all because I have one Craft Boutique tomorrow, and my big church boutique in early December.  I have to keep BUSY to keep up with all that I have going on, but I wouldn't want it any other way.  I have a very blessed life, and I am so grateful.

So, I wanted to enter my favorite weekly challenge (in the hopes of some day winning a $50 gift certificate) at Simon Says Stamp http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/.  This week, they are calling for "Buttons", so I did this little card using Basic Grey products (as their DT did), a PTI die-cut and stamp set, vintage buttons, ribbon, machine stitching, and LOTS of glitter.


I absolutely LOVE PTI stamps and die-cuts, and this little button set is just TOO cute.  I've gotten a lot of use out of it, and hope everyone gets to know and love Papertrey Ink.  They are awesome.

I'm entering this Buttons and Glitter card in the following challenges:

Before I forget, I wanted to announce the winner of the drawing for my Winnie the Pooh card.  The winner is Savannah O'Gwynn.  If you will please contact me by Friday, November 11, Savannah, I will get your card in the mail to you right away.  Thanks to all those who left a comment and entered to win.  There is still time to enter my stamp set give-away (check post below).

I hope this is my lucky week (don't I say that EVERY week?  LOL).  Anyway, thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings,

Karen
