Loving Buttons

Fall has officially come where I live! We had a bad summer, lots of rain and not much hot weather. And finally at the beginning of September hot weather came! Pretty much all of September was hot weather and many people around here visited the beach! Yesterday the weather finally turned towards fall, over night basically! It feels weird though that in just a few days it will be October! I have to start shopping for snowsuits and boots soon the stores will be sold out! We often have snow by Halloween which would be even weird to go from beach weather to snow in a few short weeks!

Today I have two cards to share. Just playing around. Which is basically my favorite thing to do when creating. I enjoy challenges but sometimes they take the fun out of card making for me. This week I am planning on working on the cards I have in my head! I have a lot of ideas and challenges tend to take me away from them! Even though I don't always take part in them I find myself thinking about them a lot! I made these two cards with my PaperTreyInk set Everyday Button Bits! Here they are:

Products used: PP by American Crafts, Bazzill Cardstock, PTI Everyday Button Bits, SU Scallop Punch, Random and Buttons by K and Company, Su Black Ink and Colorbox ink oh and Labels 1!

Love these cards! Hope everyone is having a fantastic start to there week!

It was so weird to wake up and have to turn on the furnace this morning!

I looove the cards - what a cool use of buttons! All the little touches like using the corner rounder and scallop edge pull them together so nicely. I especially love the detail of sticking a wing on the button and the string through the button! I'm saving these for inspiration!

btw, it was nice running into you yesterday! That is so awesome that you work there, I love their clothes!
