How is everyone this sunny, saturday morning?

I'm going out to prune our front shrubs and plant some annuals in a bit. But first wanted to share a few cards.

I did spend some successful time in my scrapbook studio last night and created this card for 'Use It' as well as 'DCM'.

For Use It, Patti challenged us with the following:

1) Use some old chipboard
Go ahead and feel free to mix & match manufacturers.

2) Use buttons
- one of my very favorite embellishments.

3) Tear some paper.
Patterned paper or cardstock.

4) Optional: Stitch.
Machine or hand stitch, it's up to you.

5) Have fun!!
This is essential

Then for DCM, the challenge is use 5 of one item.

So using some bright Mind's Eye papers, with a Maya Road chipboard bird, 5 buttons and my Bazzil stitch template, I created this 'hello' card.

I'm pretty happy with it! I really should handstitch more often!

Love your card Rosanne. I decided to play along too. It was my first time, but I don't think it will be my last.
