I started with Whisper White card stock from SU! and cut it to 6"x12" and scored in in half for the card base. Then I took the kraft patterned paper cut to 6"x6" and the orange patterned paper cut to 4.5"x4.5" and used the mat set from SU! to pierce a border around the outside of each piece. I used a white Signo gel pen to do faux stitching around each piece as well before using my scissors and filer to distress the edges. After adhering these pieces to the card base I then attached the chipboard followed by the large blue blossom from Making Memories, then the pink flowers from Doodlebug Design Inc, and finally I threaded fiber through the button also from Doodlebug Design Inc. and adhered. Finally, I attached three brads from SU! And...that's it!

Ode to the Funky Button
I've made a few things now with my current favorite paper collection. This card was actually made with some of the scraps that Lilly got a hold of. I've tried to preset a few of my posts since I will be gone for a week, but of course I haven't had time for much of anything. The construction company is supposed to be here in ten minutes to finally fix a couple things, Lilly has an appointment at the groomers at 1500, and I still have to pack for the trip to Fort Lewis, Washington tomorrow. I'll be leaving Lilly with Debbie for the first leg of the trip (I'm going twice). This is the first time I'll be away from her, so I'm quite nervous. I just don't want her to get lonely or forget me or make any messes or... on and on. It's that motherly side of me coming out that I don't like right now. I should be worrying about the dirty dishes in the sink before the repair people come or the fact that I still need to do a load of laundry before I can pack my uniforms, but of course my mind is always on something else. Here's on last card before I leave:Here's what I did:
