Who's got the buttons?...AND...some exciting news!

The challenge at Paperlicious Designs this week was fun! I finally sat down last night at about 9:30, and started working on it. Melisa asked us to use at least 5 buttons on our card! all know me and my buttons! I always love an excuse to get into grandma's old button jar, and nana's old button tin! I'm also a bit hooked on Inchies - I love the concept of all of those itty bitty squares creating a beautiful masterpiece. was an easy decision for me - today's posting is an Inchie's card with EIGHT buttons on it!

Hope you like it! All images are Inkadinkado, everything else is scraps and buttons! CS is DCWV. Ink is Versamark Fine Black.

Now for some exciting news!!! There is a new stamp company about to open up! Hurry over to Lalaland and check it out! They are currently looking for 6 DT members, so you have a chance to apply with the owner, Irina, for that, as well!!! Their sneak previews look like so much fun - I am anxious to see entire images!

Also, I won some blog candy! Heather, has an amazing blog - great tutorials, and wonderful cards and three d projects! Be sure to pop over and check out her blog!

Have a wonderful Sunday - blessings to all!

Great card - it must have taken you ages to. If I tried this, it wouldn't have been as neat and straight as yours.TFS

I LOVE buttons, too, Patti! Another thing we have in common. Great idea pairing them with inchies.
