Button Wreath in CARDS Magazine

Gotta celebrate the times you're published...even if it was last year.  Here's something that made it into an issue of CARDS magazine, before they went all digital:


I've got buttons here from my favorite aunt's stash, and they are indeed vintage.  The sentiment is Verve.



Thanks for celebrating with me!

They went all digital? I didn't know that. Well, here's something you can't do with digis! I absolutely love your wreath! How totally fun and pretty it is. I see two buttons which are in my vintage button collection, as well. Different colors, but same style. I just love hunting through those buttons.

Stampers will never go ALL digital, you can be sure of that! How would we ever use up all that vintagey stash we have? LOVE this!

This is such a beautiful, vintage wreath. Love the old buttons. I see why it was published.

Hope you're enjoying the holiday season. I have dinner guests coming in two hours so I'm scooting out of here. :-)

Ahhh buttons, buttons and teeny weeny embossed polka dots...a girl after my own heart!! I love this Colleen, and congrats on the publication of it!

Ever since I was a little girl Christmas cards in the mail have thrilled me to bits and bits!! The first one, no matter who it's from, always seems extra special. And this year my sweet friend it was yours!!! THANK you for sending me one of your little works of art. May you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year {{HUGS}}!!!

Congratulations on this publication and the Thanksgiving one too! Both are gorgeous and so worthy of publication! Isn't it sad that the magazines are going digital! I can't carry my computer around as easily as a magazine.
