It's Friday Friends With Flair and Time for Sweet Nothin's!


You know when you find something that you really love that you just have to have? Well, I was buying yarn today for an afghan I am making and I found this fun and funky button trim. I just had to have it!

And then I looked at the price tag....... $11.99 a yard!! Ack!! How can trim be that much? Well, I didn't end up with yards and yards of it - just 1/3 yard with my 40% off coupon for Hobby Lobby. And I still love it!


Images are by Unity Stamp Co. I stamped in VersaMark and embossed my images, then colored with Copics and Spica Glitter pens (LOVE those). I pierced the lower right corner, and added pearls.

And on a side note, I am going to be the proud owner of Eco Chic!  I won it on AJ Otto's blog yesterday!  Woot!

What cute button trim - I can understand the "have to have it" -- impressed with your compromise instead of buying a full yard. Very cute card.
