Vintage Buttons~My News~And A Shout Out

This is going to be a bit longer post then usual.....
First , I want to share with you my card  for the challenge at "Shopping Our Stash"
I have to say, I LOVE this challenge, as the rules are to always use your stash
nothing new, and boy oh boy do I have the stash!!
This week the rule is NO patterned paper of any kind.....
 

I have a lot of SU colored card stock, but find myself using mostly whites, cream or kraft
for most of my cards, so am trying to make myself use colored cardstock.....
I used a Sizzix Vintage Embossing folder with SU Wild Wasabi CS
The little button card you see I made about a year ago and it has been patiently
waiting for me to use it.....
you might think it has patterned paper on it, but it doesn't.....
the gingham you see, is a gingham stamp from Papertrey Ink
as well is the button card.....
the paper buttons are Sizzix Buttons #5 and are stamped as well
there is a scrap of old lace, scrap of ribbon and a lavender safety pin I
received in a swap about 2 or more years ago....using stash...yeah!!
Give this challenge a try, it is so fun!!

Wanted to give a shout out of thanks to Shopping Our Stash for honoring me
last week in the Top 3
and also a shout of thanks to City Crafters for making me a "spotlight artist"
for week 161 burlap

And now for bit of news:
