All Things Grow With Love & Patience

Happy Monday to you! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Today I have another Everyday Button Bits card to share with you. This time I used the flower bunch image...

I pulled out the good old needle and embroidery floss again and straight stitched a couple of rows (also stitched on that cute white button flower along the bottom, the flower detail is there its just hard to see in the picture). The polka dots were all embossed in clear embossing powder. Check out these cute button flowers...I really love how they hang over the edge of the circle.

Thanks again for stopping in and visiting me today! Hope you have a wonderful Monday! I've had a pretty crazy day so far, nothing seems to be going right (praying for patience!).

  1. oh what a sweet card, the polka dots look great and I like the scalloped bottom, what a nice touch. The more I see you use those stamps from PTI, the more I want, hehe.

  2. Oh, I love this! You know I'm a sucker for button bouquets :) I love the stitching and button at the bottom too :) Hey, I just saw your fabulous July Cards cards (we have a hard time getting the books to Canada so I have access to the online versions as well). Question...how did you get Dawn's stamp set early? Was it from winner an honourable mention? Just wondering...will you be a PTI designer soon? You have my vote!! Just wondering...I'm new and naive to how the industry down there works and find it incredible how BIG it is...we Canadians just sit and drool at everything :) Thanks!

  7. This is one of my favourites!!! The stitching is a wonderful addition along with that single button, and the button bouquet is cute. Loving the polka dots. Praying for you and your patience. (Patience grows with love too) Hope you can find some time for some stamp therapy and a chance to be alone with your thoughts.
