Buttons and Bows

Another day, another new card, and few more new challenges as well.  Sometimes I ask myself why I keep trying.  It's all in fun.  At least I would have to say that if I no longer find it fun, I shouldn't keep crafting.  Since I continue to spend my children's inheritance on scrapbooking supplies (LOL...just kidding), I had better enjoy it.  I do love making cards and scrapbooks.  It's just been a bit more of a chore since I've been "on the mend", and I'm really looking forward to seeing by best friend, Patti Lyn, this summer and crafting with her.  Now, that's FUN.

This is my Design Team card for this week's new challenge over at Word Art Wednesday where I have posted some exciting news about our upcoming challenges and secondary sponsors.  We would be delighted to have you join our weekly challenges there.

I am also going to enter my little card in the following challenges:
