button challenge wrap up

First, a big THANK YOU to all the ladies who joined in on the fun and participated in the 2nd Monthly Craft Challenge with BUTTONS!! I had so much fun looking through all of the wonderful creations. I think this is such a great way to get inspired and to be challenged to create. If you haven't checked out all the creativity, head on over HERE for some creative inspiration and check out the links! (You can also visit HERE for the first month's challenge using a scalloped circle craft punch.)

We had 13 participants this month and I'm so ecstatic about that! The first month we had 8 participants, so we're growing!! Keep on coming back to show off your creativity!

This month's random winner (using my own personal random generator...the ever so sweet Mikayla) is...

Shelby @ Schweri Stories
{please e-mail me with your mailing address at}

You've won!!
3 handmade cards by ME using Cheep Talk by Stampin Up!
& 3 spools of American Crafts spring ribbon

Ribbon? Did someone say ribbon?? Were you wondering what next month's challenge might involve? RIBBON!! We all love of us some ribbon, right? So, come on back and we'll have another party on Thursday, May 7th sharing our creations. There are endless possibilities, so get creative!

And, before I go and take a couple day hiatus for a fun Easter weekend, I wanted to show you some treat packages I made for the neighbors. I love making little gifts to pass out to the neighbors during the holidays. There are only a handful that we chat with on a regular basis, so it's nice to just put something small together to let them know we care!


Head on over to Keeping Up With the Schultz Family for some Round Robin sharing of creative ideas, giveaways, fashion tips, or anything your heart desires.

Ooh, I think I might have a few ideas for ribbon! I'll have to see if I can actually accomplish any or if they're just really good ideas in my head *L*

Oh ribbon how fun, I'll get started on thinking right after Easter so I don't have to flake out and miss this one! Happy a great Easter!
