My New Fave Embellishment - Buttons...

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a lovely holiday season. I received some lovely Christmas cards - thank you to those who sent these to me. I loved them all.

Before Christmas I went on a button splurge. Lots of colours and shapes and sizes. I was like a kid in a lolly shop. Far easier on the teeth and waist line. Then I had to use them. I started with the fairly generic floral card above but I think the colours make it special.

Then I saw a birdie card by a very talented chick called Karen Thomas over at Luv to Stamp which heavily inspired the following:

And then I came up with this one:

Hope you can visit your button stash and create something with buttons too.

Thanks for looking.

Love from Crafty Kim
