Good Morning!

First, I want to apologize for my sporadic posting of late.   I have had some tough decisions to make in my personal life and they have definitely kept me on my toes.   Good news is, I have come to some eye opening conclusions and feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Ok, on to stamping.   I recently received a ‘sampling’ of some Papertrey Ink products.    I had been hearing over and over again how awesome their cardstock is, and I really wanted to check it out for myself.    I have to say that after holding some in my hands and cutting into it, I am really really impressed.    Is it better than SU?  No…  Is it comparable? Absolutely.   Obviously, PTI doesn’t carry as many colors…YET… so I will likely stick with my SU, but would I buy PTI?  Uh huh!

So today’s Ways To Use It challenge called for buttons.   Buttons, I got!   I have found myself using buttons more and more lately.   They were popular awhile back, then fizzled out for awhile, but they are back!

Buttons are fun.   You can use them with or without thread.  They really dress up a card.   I am particularly fond of the clear buttons as you can back them with dp and make them match your theme!

Here are my deets:

Stamps:   PTI’s Tea For Two

Colors: PTI’s Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, Green Tea Leaves Collection dp, GP White

Ink: PTI’s Ripe Avocado

Accessories: buttons, satin dots ribbon, swiss dots ef, medium scalloped circle punch, dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!   I actually have another post to make a little later today, so stop back by if you can!

I hope you have a blessed day!!!!
