Hey everyone how are you tonight?? Thanks for all your encouragement and kind words!! I am so glad you were liking that last card, because I am stuck on the buttons!! LOL! Guess I figured I should be, since I bought a bag! Haha! They were calling to me; besides the fact that everyones' projects were sooo cute. I just had to do another. That and I have learned we have another birthday among us ladies!! Make sure you stop over and wish LORIE a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Her birthday is on October 9th. So, I made this card for her! Hope you like it LORIE, it will be coming your way tomorrow! I love how it turned out, don't you? I had this Whipper Snapper image, from my friend Sarah, already colored and ready to go. I do that a lot. While I am watching TV with my hubby or while I am eating lunch. You know? Just hanging out and coloring, what can I say. Anyway, I was eyeing my buttons and trying to piece it all together. I had the AWESOME ribbon I used on the last card and my buttons went well with it. I knew I had some of the SU Wassabi Green CS and DP to match. The whole match thing, ya know? Haha! I had the CB embossed circles from my friend Carrie, whose DD has Girl Scouts with Kyah? The one who got me NEEDING a CB to begin with?? Hehe! She had let me borrow hers to try it out and that is when I made the circles. I knew they would come in handy someday! However, I needed to tone down the Pomegranate a bit, so it didn't look like Christmas! LOL! I took my finger dauber and dabbed it in my SU Basic Brown. I brushed the sides of the circles and then ended up brushing across the whole thing. I really like it; it was just enough! Then I took the same dauber and dabbed it in the Pomegranate; I proceeded to do the edges of some of my layers and the edge of the right side of the card. I went back over the sides of the White CS, that I had done with Pomegranate, with the Basic Brown. Again, this was to tone down the Pomegranate. Well, I really like it and I will stop babbling!! I hope you like it too!! I appreciate your visit tonight! Look forward to you stopping back again!! If you have time, stop by Leanne's Blog, and check out the AWESOME creations she has made!! She is the one who got me started on the buttons, in the first place!! Thanks for the GREAT idea LEANNE!!! I am glad you shared your idea with us!! Ok gals I will stop now!!! Have a FANTASTIC night!!! I hope to see you tomorrow, until then..............................ENJOY LIFE!!
