Shabby Chic Buttons and the Kitty 6 Pack

I’ve had a real nice day in the workshop today… first off I started by having a real good tidy up, put away loads of things and had a general tidy/sort out ๐Ÿ™‚

I also caught up on answering all the lovely comments left on my blog and over on youtube.

I made some glittered buttons, the inspiration and idea came from the wonderful Lilybean’s Paperie blog, she used wooden buttons, but I only had some acrylic ones, they turned ok ok, but will look out for wooden buttons this weekend and give them another try out

I also made a 6 pack of mini kitty cards

Then tonight on ustream I made another thankyou card using the new K & Company Julianne 6 x 6 Paper Stack
