I actually HAVE something today – I know you can hardly believe it. Behold, my craftiness for the week.
This week I made a few birthday cards for some friends, I can’t remember where I saw this idea of buttons for flowers, but It was a fun little task. (Vic and Aunt C. – you’ll have to let me know how they travel through the mail!) So the flowers are buttons, I drew the stems and leaves, and stamped the “wishes.”
AND…I also have two layouts that I got done while the kids were playing together last night. Sweet.
The first was inspired by this post from last year and is called First Born.

I’m still not completely happy with the title – that may get redone. I was going to do a paint/wash on some chipboard, but I didn’t have the right letters in the right size, and since I’m trying to use what I’ve got before splurging on any other scrappin’ goods…I didn’t get to complete my “vision” for this one.
The second one is pretty self-explanatory.
The tag on the left says “Sisters through thick and thin” and I finally got to use this velvet bric-brac ribbon that I’ve had for ages – it is the prettiest color green (doesn’t come through all that well in the photos, but it is pretty!) and was perfect between all of the photos.
It felt so good to get back to doing some creative things for a change. Now what do you have to show for the week?
