Oh my goodness gracious. You are the button queen. I love it.
I love that card, and all those so sweet buttons. That was one of the rowdiest games we played as children. So exciting. Things have changed in the last 60 odd years.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful paper crafts with us today at WAW. We appreciate your participation and love seeing your diverse gifts and talents.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
