Happy Monday Everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend!!  WE are back from Boston and had a great time visiting with family!!


Today I want to take a moment and share this week's new Stamp and Create challenge.  This month I am the hostess and I have  chosen the challenge: Buttons and another shaped card other than a square or rectangle.

You must use a NEW card (no back linking please), and you can enter up to once a week. You are welcome to enter cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, 3-D projects, etc. You may use any stamp...it does not need to be a stamp Stamp and create carries.
The prize this month is a $20 gift certificate to Stamp and Create
The challenge is perfect to go with this week's Product Spotlight!! which is buttons!!  All buttons at Stamp and Create is 25% off!!! 


Here is my take on the challenge:


I created a card to go with my tool tote for Mother's Day.  I used the darling Willow Kneeling image
 The buttons are  a combo of Basic Grey Pyrus, Basic Grey Olivia, as well as some other buttons from my stash.  The ribbon is May Arts Ribbon tied with the Bow Easy.  The designer paper is from K and Co. Susan Winget collection.




  I shared this toot tote that I created on my blog a few weeks ago.  For this creation, I used the darling Willow Kneeling image which I colored with copics.  I created a 3d gift using the My Time Made Easy Trendy Tool Tote template designed by Lauren Meader.  I used some of my new embossed dp from K and Co. with hydrangeas on it...my fave flower!!  It is so sparkly!!  The sentiment on the candle is from Whiff of Joy's Blooming Spring Kit.  The pearl and gold butterflies are one of my recent finds at Michaels!!




For more inspiration for this week's challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
 Joy, Lacey, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.
