I am off work tomorrow, so I am hoping to have a lot of craft time. Well what I really need to be doing is working on the soon to be craft room! I am making progress. I can't believe I moved with so much stuff. I blame it on the fact that we had such a short engagement, I only had nine weeks to plan a wedding, who had time to pack! Finally, I am unpacking all those boxes and finding so many treasures. I have also found some kitchen items that I knew I was missing so that has been a good thing. Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, I actually got to play along with a Twisted Thursday challenge on a Thursday! Usually I am not home and don't have crafting time until the weekend. The twist this week was to use chipboard along with the sketch that was provided. I looked at the sketch this morning and I had kind of planned out what I wanted to do and what stamp I wanted to use. I knew I wanted to use chipboard buttons on those circles. But, when I sat down to make my card, I had no chipboard buttons. I did, however, have these chipboard circles that have monograms on one side. I flipped them to the blank side and used Pebbles Metallic Chalks to color them the color I wanted them to be and then used my Crop-a-dial to punch the holes. Viola, I had chipboard buttons!! I tied twine in the center of each "button" before adding them to my circles. The main image, the sentiment and the paw prints are all from the same S2G set, What's New, which was my first S2G set I ever bought. My image was colored with Copic markers and the papers are from the DCWV Pet Stack.
