Buttons & Bows ...

It was my turn to hostess the Free for All Challenge on SCS again last Thursday. I spent the better part of the day working on the bag I shared with you in my last post. Then, I got all wrapped up in the season finale for Grey's Anatomy (seriously, it was so intense it gave me a freakin' HEADACHE!)!. Smiley from millan.net My darling daughter informed me, right before the show came on, that she was supposed to bring some sort of food/treat thing to school the next morning that reflected her heritage (WHAT??!!?? Seriously??!!?? Another 11th-Hour Project!)!

Sooo .... as soon as Grey's was over we zipped over to the store to get some ingredients to make a cake (Bienenstich - "Bee Sting Cake" - since we gotta LOTTA German in our family!). Anywho ... after making the cake and sending her to bed, I decided to settle down and read some emails and such. This was just about 11:00 p.m. ... THEN I remembered that it was MY TURN to hostess the challenge!! YIKES!! I knew what I wanted to do, yet I hadn't even STARTED to make a sample!! YEEE-IKES!! The challenge, by the way, was to use buttons and/or bows (ribbon) in a creative or different way ...

Lucky for me, this card whipped up in about 15 minutes, so I was able to photograph it, write some yadda-yadda, and get it up by 12:00 (or slightly thereafter) ... gotta love those school projects, right???

Have a super-duper day!!

Love this card!! And I crochet doilies and have crocheted these fleurettes in every size, color, etc., so I can customize it to the paper I'm using. But, hadn't thought of using a button in the middle. Thanks for the inspiration that already incorporates another tool I learned from my granny at age 8!
