Life is a Song - Sing It!

Today's SCS Ways To Use It Challenge 220 was to use buttons! We all have a LOT of those, I think! At least I do, and I don't use them often enough! The button on my tag has a paper "thread."

I inked up at new set from Unity Stamp Co. called Birdie Inspiration. It has some neat sentiments and fun images. Click on the picture for a close-up view!

A short post today - thank you to those who have been praying for my dad - he is out of the hospital after three weeks and a stay in ICU!

Have a wonderful day!


Stamps: Birdie Inspiration by Unity Stamp Co.
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Basic Grey DP: Bittersweet & Urban Prairie
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: ribbon (American Crafts), buttons (Winter Craft Buttons by CTMH), Fiskars border punch, Scor-Pal, sewing machine
