It's time for a new challenge at Catered Crop. We are challenge to "button up"! And as an alternative to a card, you can show how you store your buttons. I decided to do both, because I knew that a picture of my button storage would give you a chuckle. Me...completely, obsessively organized me...stores my buttons in a jumbled heap like this....
At least they are their little bags!! Of course, this is a wire ELFA drawer and it is a pain in the *^&*! on those amazingly regular times in which I don't quite close the bag and the buttons drop down through the other four mesh drawers.
Now for the card. I like the look of buttons as a simple border. I think it is a classic, down-to-earth, happy feel to have a string of buttons.
I liked the rows of colors so replicated that with my buttons. I added a stitched heart from Papertrey (a couple of months ago, Wida and I met up in a cold and windy parking lot and traded out a variety of these stitched dies so one of the dies had to make an appearance on this card!) Then I picked the sentiment for Wida...
Miss you already Wida.
