PTI Swap #5 Sketch #1
Happy Halloween! I didn't expect to be able to post a new card today, but last night we had "Family Movie Night". While the kids watched Monsters and Aliens, I was able to put together my cards. It was SO much fun rummaging through all of the gorgeous buttons. I've never been a huge fan of buttons and crafting but PTI has forever changed that!
At first I tried the buttons alone, but then got the idea to use the Guidelines 2 set as little ornaments and used the buttons for more pop.
Each button was carefully selected for size, color and texture. I am going to have a difficult time parting with my beloved buttons. ;) Oh well I can always buy more.
This is not the greatest picture, but I wanted to show you the variety of the buttons on the cards. (Remember you can click to enlarge the photo.)
Well, we are off to buy a new Hamster. Since Fluffy's untimely passing the girls have been bugging me for another one. I'm hoping to be able to post my fourth and last swap card (for this round anyway) tomorrow. And guess what it has on it? That's right! More buttons!!! Heehee!
