Good Morning!!
It is Friday and time for another challenge over
at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and sTanglar and
it is to use buttons.  That is an easy one right?

I got this image ages ago and still have not inked it
up and thought it was about time I did!! LOL
I needed to make my SOL a birthday card and this
year I am going to try and keep up sending them out all year!
(I said try and that is a big try!! LOL)
I have used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday.

I finally got settled and got to go through some new papers
I had gotten. These are so pretty and are from Prima and is called
Annalee ~ I found some here on sale. Again I have used
some crackle paint to get a shabby chic look to it.
The name of the sentiment is from Hero Arts and the
buttons are from PTI.
The image was colored with distress inks and twinkling h20's.

I had to take a seperate pic of the flowers to show off!
They were all sprayed with marshmellow glimmer mist and
then I put some crackle around the edges of the Gardenia.
All these flowers are now available at Wild Orchid Crafts.
I love making arrangements with them especially with the new
mulberry Hip Rosebuds. Now there is such a beautiful
assortment of sizes to create a beautiful little bouquet on your cards!
They are the white bigger ones ~ aren't they so pretty!!!

Well that is it for me today!
I hope you all have a wonderful week-end!
I am off tomorrow to sign the girls up for soccer.
It just ended practically in PA but here in TX they
have to play now as it is too stinkin' hot to play during the
summer months. So that is what our life will be
for a few months!! FUN Stuff!! I can't say no
as the girls just love it and it really brought Lauren out of
her shell. She was so quiet and by the end she was getting
penalty's left and right for pushing!! LOL

Have a great day!
