Baby and Button Buddies

Well, first I want to thank anyone who is still reading/subscribing to my blog during my long absence!  I did have my baby--and she is already 7 months old!  It really is hard to believe how fast time goes.  :-)  

Here is a picture of my little cutie:   

So she's one of my excuses for not blogging. :-)  I've also been struggling with some post-pregnancy health complications, although I think I'm hopefully almost out of woods with all that now too. So, my goal is to get back into the habit of posting on my blog.  I have been stamping a little here and there--thanks to my clubs who keep my stamping!  

So here's a card for today:  

This is a card I made up to put as a 'thank you' into customer orders.  The flower image is from the set Button Buddies.  I inked with Daffodil Delight and then carefully rolled the edges of the stamp in Pumpkin Pie ink before stamping onto Whisper White paper.   I punched out with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and then added the Pumpkin Pie Designer Button and Lined Thread bow.  The flower is also up on dimensionals.  

The other two flowers were stamped with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry.  I distressed the edges of the Whisper White layer with my Cutter Kit and mounted it on a 3" by 3" Rich Razzleberry base.  

See you again soon!
