Everyday Button Bits from PTI

Good Monday morning! Wow, are you in for a surprise today; there are some cards to check out and I'm so excited about getting to share them with you. If you haven't tried checking out a couple of blogs, such as and, you're missing out on some wonderful designs and ideas. Nichole Heady is one of the owners of the Papertrey Ink company and you're not getting disappointed if you check it out. Her designers are one of the best in the country; in fact, many of them have their work published in card magazines, such as "Paper Crafts" and "Card Creations." One of the newest releases, Everyday Button Bits, is an adorable and versatile stamp set; there are so many combos you can use to create the perfect card! Hope you enjoy viewing a few cards I made on my birthday (it was raining, so Efraim and I postponed more celebrating until the next day.)

Wow!! I love what you did with the buttons on the bicycle! What a fun idea :-)It really brings deep into the card and looks alive! :-) Hope your having a nice day in the States :-) I must come there sometime to shop in all your great stores. We met an American family on a wedding last saturday who lived in California. So we might visit them next summer. But that's nowhere nere where you live right? It's such a big country :-)hihihi
