Hello card

This is another Go To Sketches card, I like how this turned out. The flower tag thing is actually the product tag from the Liberty of London basket thing I got (seen in the background of this photo). I colored the flower with copice and white embossed the "hello" on it. Easy goes to peasy. Also I don't think I've shared these yet. I got the most amazing embelishments from My Button Boutique Etsy store:
They are hadmade flatback "buttons". I mean for embelishment there is not a way to sew them to a sweater or anything. But perfect for papercrafters! I used one on a scrapbook page for Stephen's school, but it was kinda silly, I pretty much just let Stephen use it.

I don't know if you recognize any, but she uses print papers to make them, they are covered or laminated with some thin plastic too so they are not frail like a paper button. I totally love them. I bought the bulk supply in multi and black/white. She shipped super quick too! I love getting stuff on Etsy. Gives me warm fuzzies. :)
Tomorrow is Stephen's last day of VPK. he says it doesn't really count either because it's a party all day. I'm so excited because I've been having to wake him up every day, which means he will most likely sleep a bit later. So I'll get to sleep in. I lately look forward to sleep like other folks look forward to trips to Disney World. I feel totally fine now in the pregnancy, except TIRED. The school was great, he learned tons and had a super fun time with friends, but he's looking forward to summer and then Kindergarden.

Oooh, Erin, love those buttons and your card is fabulous! If you don't mind, I might have to "lift" that one!

Love this -- I saved one of those Liberty of London tags to use on a card too!!

And those buttons!! Holy cow. . . I see a serious addiction starting here. The first sign I'm a goner is immediately wondering where/how I can store them in large quantities, LOL!!!

Thanks for sharing your find! I've got the store bookmarked now.

You are doing great with those sketches - I admire your dedication. I probably would have wondered off to go eat some cookies by now :)

Those buttons are awesome!
