What do I appreciate?


Hi Stampers!


It's Thursday! Hang in there, peeps, Friday's just around the corner!


So...Are you curious about my title?
Well, I decided to play along with the Wednesday challenge at All That Scraps this week.
The challenge was to use ATS stamps, AND to make paper buttons.
Ha ha, my buttons looked like little purple aliens!
So...I one hundred percent appreciate my grandmother's button jar! Absolutely no doubt!
Whew. Thought I'd never get that Baker's Twine through those alien eyes :)

All coloring is with Copic markers, and all DP is Reminisce. I'm also going to enter this in the sketch challenge at Reminisce this week. Here's the sketch!

Hope she makes you smile - I only have one Magnolia image! Hmmm....there are flowers, lots of flowers, there are summery colors, and she's all dressed up in summery, sheer fabric, with eyelet trim, I think I shall go ahead and enter her in the ATS Magnolia challenge too!
The theme is: "Hot, Hot, Days of Summer".


Have a good day - I'll be around to visit this evening - have a bit of housework to do today!


Take care,
Patti J.


Food for thought:
At the end of the day, when you feel tired, is it because you 'growled' all day?

She is sweet as can be! Love the flowers and the purple shades.

Dana said...

She is precious and I think your buttons look great! But I've got to agree, grandma's buttons all the way. Except I hate to part with them on cards... lol! Especially the ones that still have threads where she cut them off of something and saved them.
Hugs~
