A Week of Buttons and Blog Candy!

Wow, what a week and I mean that in the best way possible! I found out on Friday that one of my cards is going to be published in the Paper Crafts "Holiday Cards and More Vol.5" magazine that comes out Sep. 14th. I could not stop jumping up and down, and still get butterflies in my tummy when I think about it!

Anyways, as you read from my blog post title, this week, I am going to post cards made with buttons! I have been on a crazy button kick lately, and just can't get enough colors, shapes, and sizes! For today's card I used the super cute set by PTI called "Everyday Buttons". I used SU Kiwi Kiss classic ink, and SU Choco Chip ink to stamp the sentiment. The ribbon was from Big Lots that I got for $1, (LOVE that place) and the patterned paper is by Provo Craft and it is linen paper. I love the soft look of it, and how it looks like the sky! The cute striped epoxy brad is from SU.

Since I am having such a great week and because I have plenty, I am going to share some of my buttons with 1 lucky blog reader!

The rules are the same as my last giveaway, you have 3 chances to win:

1.) Comment on this post
2.) Share a pic of my candy with a link on your blog, or blog sidebar
3.) Become a follower of my blog!

You don't have to do all 3, but if you want the most chances to win well....ya better!

Please leave a separate comment on this post for each chance to win, if you are a follower then leave a comment, if you posted the candy on your blog then leave another comment, and so forth. This candy will be posted until May 2, and the winner posted on Monday Morning! Good Luck everyone!
