CAS button wreath

Well... I survived the first week of school! {I work as a para in the autism department.} It always wears me out getting back into the routine after all summer off, so I have been too tired to make cards in the evenings. But I did make this button wreath card over the summer to share with you today.

There have been so many button ideas flowing around the blogs this past year! I have seen button wreaths all over the place and liked the idea, so I tried one myself.

Pretty simple! I used SU black ink for the sentiment from Stampendous. I would like to try more wreathes with smaller buttons..maybe I'll feel like playing around with that idea tomorrow!

Today I am going to enjoy the sun!

I know exactly how you feel, I just completed my first week back to school. I'm missing my lazy days of summer! I love your card! What a great way to use buttons, I am going to have to case this! :)

Hi Laurie, snap; I never make cards at night as after school I'm so tired I just can't get creative. I love working with children with Special Needs but it's emotionally draining as well as physically tiring isn't it?

Your card is simply brilliant and one of those ideas that I wish I'd thought of! xx

This is ADORABLE & now I have a GREAT idea of what to do with all those buttons I've been collecting!!

Lovely card, Laurie. I really like how you changed the stitching in each alternating button - just another small touch that really makes the difference!

Simple yet beautiful wreath card, Laurie! I can relate to being tired from work. It definitely zaps the creative juices. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :) ~Jen
