SUOC 50 - Buttons and Brads
Sorry I've been M.I.A. so much lately. What with visiting my ill father in Montana, going to my first SU convention, a brutal drive home from Salt Lake City, and spending time with my grandkids (whom I haven't seen in TOO long), I haven't had a chance to update my blog as much as I would have liked. But that all changes today!
This week it's a Buttons and/or Brads challenge at SUO Challenges! Too often I reach for ribbon or adhesive rhinestones and pearls to add embellishments to my cards, so digging into my stash of brads was fun for a change. The rosette was a spare one from playing around with the Champagne Glimmer paper a few weeks ago. I set it aside, knowing I'd be using it soon!
I have lots of pictures from convention to share over the next week or so, so be sure to check back. And I'm approaching a milestone soon, as well, and there may or may not be blog candy involved. You'll find out when it happens. Just sayin'....
