We loved your creations and LOVED getting to visit your blogs!
You blew us away with your creativity and we want more!
We know you'll have a ball with this one...
Simply create a new CAS project using buttons AND twine.
Bakers twine, jute twine, you can even substitute embroidery floss if you don't own any twine.
And who doesn't love to play with buttons??

Our Girl Fridays played with Boutique Buttons from...

Ugh, Blogger is still having issues.. I went to post my card Tuesday night, and all I'm getting is text, I can't add a photo... I think I'm going to try and close everything, and see if resetting and clearing the cache works.

Lori Barnett said...

Great challenge and AWESOME samples! I lost track of time this week...and didn't get my card finished in time...but I will still post it on my blog. I look forward to each new Friday Challenge!!!

Cathy A said...

Great challenge, I am so gutted that I have been chasing my tail this week and only got my card photoed for this weeks challenge today, and so missed the deadline! With blogger being down last week it has really thrown me.

Great cards again from the design team and congrats to the first round of winners
