Blazing Buttons!



Todays card was made using a FAB set from Paper Trey Ink (PTI) Called Everyday Button Bits ! I adore this set so very much! No, faithful followers, this is not Stampin Up! But I can't resist a good PTI once in a while!

The dots in the back ground are another a PTI set called Background Basics II. I used a Versa Mark pad and clear embossing powder to achieve this look......fun huh? This way I do not add color to the card stock, only an eye pleasing texture. The fun little tag is a Cuttlebug Die. The ribbon and buttons are from PTI and the cardstock is from SU! Old Olive and Barely Banana.

There is never enough time in the day to do all the things you want is there? But one thing I am sure of; if I did not have to eat, I would have so much more time and money! I mean think about it.....eating takes time, then there is planning grocery lists, shopping, putting away food, cooking and cleaning up after it! And the money part.....think of the stamping stuff you could buy with all the money you spend on food! Hahaha! When time is limited (and when is it not?) rely on simple layouts and your stamping time will be far more profitable.
