Celebrate!

I'm participating in a birthday card swap with my local scrapbooking group. I send in 10 cards I make and get 10 different ones. I'm still trying to use up my stash, and not buy any new materials, so they are all different.My stash includes buttons, so I used a few. I don't know why I am so weird about using my "good" embellishments on things. It's like saving the good china; why? I definitely bring in more buttons to the house each year than I send out. Too bad their not money, I'd be in the black all the time! Something a little sedate.I really like this floral background paper. I like how the brown paper makes it not so "girly". Another of my nifty vintage buttons was sacrificed on this card.These are bright and fashionable. They would be great for some hip young lady's birthday.
So that's what I've finished this week. Something that inspires me to finish at least a project a week is Finished for Friday over at Lit & Laundry. You should go check out the projects that others have finish, sewing, baking, organizing, etc. and be inspired!

These are really great! I agree that they're sweet without being to girly. I also understand about hesitating to use "the good stuff." I have beautiful fabric that I just can't bear to cut and use. How silly. These things will just be appreciated more if we use them.

I'm so selfish that if I ever made ten cards by myself, I wouldn't want to turn them loose! lol

I would like to pass along an award to you. I'd be honored if you would go by and pick it up. Ellie :)

I always enjoy reading your posts.

Wonderful job on the cards.

Great idea to swap them!
- and they are relly nice.

And with regard to your buttons - are you sure you are not a secret button addict?

I went to several card making classes and I loved the cards I made so much that it would have been liking putting my children in the mail so I took the cards and made scrap pages using them and some photos and journaling and now they are all mine.

Have a great weekend from

Each of your birthday card is a great design. It's fun to see how you used various elements to form each card's design.

Love your cards and I collect buttons too and I TOTALLY AGREE WITH NOT USING THE "GOOD BUTTONS" you might need them for something important some day. :)
