SHOPPING OUR STASH #302 - Put a Button On It

Hello crafty peeps!
This week at
we want to see buttons on your cards or projects.
Pretty simple, huh?
Here's my take on the challenge:

and the inside:

Ok, so I only put one button on my card. But, it came from the collection of 
buttons that my Mom gave to me years ago. And she got the collection from
my Grandmother. Back in the day, they would salvage any buttons
that they could from coats/hats/pants/shirts/etc. So I find it nice to think that
this particular button came from a coat that my Aunt Jo 
had from when she was 13 years old. 
It's a comforting thought. ☺

Now it's your turn to break out those buttons and use them! Just link up to
Shopping Our Stash so we can admire your creations! For more
ideas, be sure to visit the blogs of my teammies and while there, leave
them some love! Thanks for visiting, have a great day!

I need to break out my vintage button collection and join the fun ... I always found it so peaceful going through my grandma's button jar ... so glad you helped us celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas at Jingle Belles.

Awesome card, great take on the sketch and of course going with a Holiday card is perfect for the Jingle Belles (I couldn't find time, again)

I totally get your attachment to this beautiful button, I love it that it's squared.
Fabulous combination of this challenges, love that Partridge with it's pear and the beautiful pattern paper you used for the background.
The music embossed panel gets you singing this song, awesome detail.

I just love this card! Love the image and the background paper. It has a spring feel to it, but definitely a Christmas theme. Thank you for playing along with Sunday Stamps this week.

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
