Skipping Down the Hill to Springtime Smiles

Easter Blossoms
Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote a children's book called The Long Winter.  On this last day of January the winter does, indeed, feel long.  So, it seemed appropriate to send you springtime smiles with the Easter Blossoms stamp set.

Pile on as many buttons as you wish with the Sweet Buttons embosslit.  Pull out your scraps of card stock and make piles and piles of buttons.  You can make enough to tumble down the hillside.  With one quick pass through your Big Shot 6 buttons are both die cut and embossed.  Sweet!

Loving the new Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzaz 1/2" seam binding.
