Phindy's Place Friday - Buttons

Good morning everyone, T-G-I-F!  A few more hours and the work week will be over and for those of you out there who are not on summer vacation, I hope you enjoy your weekend!  Well, I hope ALL of us enjoy our weekend, but if you are working during the week then I'm sure that the weekend is a much needed break for you.  During the school year I spend as much time as I can on the weekend in my craft room because I am always short on time during the week.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to spend hours of uninterrupted time creating and crafting!  I know, I know, a girl can dream, can't she!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Phindy's Place and the challenge this time around is Buttons.  If you haven't joined our challenge in a while, or if you are new to the challenges at Phindy's Place then you may have missed that starting this month our challenges are now 2 weeks long.  Which means you know have 2 weeks to work on your project and then link it up to our challenge!

For my project today I used the Phindy's Place image, Riding Along.  You'll have to forgive me, if you look closely enough at my card you will see that the image is crooked.  I have developed a terrible case of placing things crooked on my card and, of course, the more I try to make them straight the more crooked an item gets.  I'm working on it and I HOPE it goes away soon!  It is driving me completely bananas.

Materials Used on My Project:
Copic Markers
Wild Orchid Flowers
Prima flowers
Fiskars corner flourish punch
Spellbinder's Nestabilities dies
Baker's Twine

Here's a close up of my colored image.

Now it's up to you!  Create a project with buttons on it and link it up to our challenge.  Don't forget, you have 2 weeks to enter!
So glad you stopped by today,


  1. Marlena, this is beautiful. Love the color palette and coloring. The flowers are a sweet embellie. I can't tell that the image panel is crooked, looks straight to me! Another great creation!

  2. Hi Marlena, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
