Hello There!!

I feel like that is what I should be saying to all of you because I have been so out of it this week!!  Let's suffice it to say that my life is going through a process... things are getting worked out, but I am definitely not in my normal routine quite yet!!  My life is going through an adjustment right now and it will all be good in the end, but nonetheless it has left me a little out of sorts lately.  

For those of you who keep coming by to see if I have anything new, you won't be disappointed this week because I am the Growing in Unity girl all week this week starting on Monday!  I will finally be sharing with you all some of what I am going through.  So I hope to see you on Monday!!

I was supposed to share this card with you guys yesterday for my Friends with Flair post and I even had it done on time but then the power cord on my router broke on Thursday night and I had to get it replaced.  So I was without internet for a whole day and could hardly stand it!  I felt so out of the loop and disconnected!!  Ugh!!

It was time for the Dirty Dozen Alumni Challenge (DCB510, click HERE to see the other DG's cards) this month.  And Bev Rousch decided to go opposite of the challenge I gave last month which was to use NO buttons on our cards.  So her challenge is called Cute as a Button and she wanted us to use as many buttons as we could (she used 29!) and we were restricted from using BLACK!!  Yikes!!!  These DG's really know how to make a challenge!!  LOL!!

I also needed to make my card for Maria's inspiration challenge (IHHC24) from Monday's Hippity Hop.  So I decided to incorporate the two together.  Above is the photo that Maria inspired us with!  I thought that the Paper Doll Collection from Crate Paper had all the right colors to match the photo that I went with that line for my paper selection!

I used the Ippity caterpillar and tree stamp from the A Little Buggy set and covered each of the caterpillar's segments with buttons.  I was able to get 8 buttons in all incorporated on the card!  I paper pieced the circles on the tree.  The sentiment and clouds are from the Sweet Thoughts of Spring Ippity set.

I think it is a fun and uplifting way to say hi to an old friend or give someone a boost by letting them know you are thinking of them!  

I am heading back to my craft space where I am in the middle of a major overhaul.  I had let lots of things get out of hand and now I am trying to get everything back into their homes so I can stay more organized.  I feel out of control when my space around me gets too cluttered!!  Wish me luck! 

And I will see you on Monday for Hippity Hop and my first day of Growing in Unity!!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog... I can' t tell you how thankful I am for each and every one of you!
