Your Next Stamp Challenge #18

Back again today with the current challenge over at Your Next Stamp.  Simonne is hosting for this one and she challenged us to use buttons on our creation.  
Today I decided to use the Yippee Fhiona set, and you can get a mini version of her as well since she is one of the new mini Fhiona's that were released the other day.   I colored her with copics and added a flower button to her headband.  Once again I used the DeLovely papers from Cosmo Cricket ~ sure hope you aren't getting sick of these yet because I will definitely be using them again!  The other buttons I used were for the center of the flower and then on each end of the sentiment.  I used the Bow Easy to make the satin bow, however I'm not really sure why the ribbon looks so funny in this picture.....

I am thinking that I may give this card to one of my daughter's on the last day of school.  Only 2 1/2 more days left.  Alicia is quite sad that school is almost over, as she really loves it.  The other 3 kids are ready for it.  I really can't believe how busy the last two weeks of school are!  I was on an all day Field Trip to Old World Wisconsin with Alicia's class last Thursday ~ we haven't been there in quite some time, so it was nice going back, and I think we will be taking our kids over the summer ~ preferably for Laura Ingalls Wilder Days.  Friday was Trevor's spotlight day in class so that morning I had to make Brownies and then head over to school to  spend time with his class and then had lunch with the kids.  Monday and Tuesday Alicia had her class play, and of course I had to go to each performance.  Being on the DI team this year has really helped her overcome her fear of performing in front of others and she did fantastic.  Her role was Princess Isabella, so each night before bed, I had to put her hair in rollers so it was nice and curly for the play.  Right after the play Monday morning, I went on a Field Trip to the park with Trevor's class that was for the rest of the day.  Tyler went on a Field Trip to a different park to meet their pen pals ~ thank goodness it was a beautiful day since Tuesday ended up cold and rainy!  I "think" I have a break tomorrow from School activities but Thursday it's back to school all day for "Field Day".  

We'd love to have you join us in our "Button" challenge so head on over to the Your Next Stamp blog for all the details ~ it is a two week challenge so there is plenty of time to play along!  

Have wonderful day :)
