CAS-ual Fridays (finally)


Isn't it amazing how dependent we've become on our blogs? *smile* What a relief it is to be ABLE to blog after being denied that privilege for 36 hours!

Today's card is for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge that was supposed to go live early today, but  should be up ASAP. This week's theme is a good one!


Yep, buttons and twine. 
Who doesn't have a ton of both in their arsenal of supplies?! *wink*
I used my GORGEOUS Denami kraft colored buttons for this one and some fun twine from the Twinery.


Denami is actually our sponsor this week and I love showing off their goodies...such good quality, ya know. I just love their kraft buttons! I also love the colors of aqua and terracotta together...such good contrast, don't you think?

Join us for all the fun and hoopala associated with the challenges at CAS-ual Fridays! YOU could be our next winner! EEEEK!

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*
