Week is moving fast!

Tuesday already - I loose all track of the days when the boys are on their school holidays.  Each day blends into the next.  Just a quick post today.  I was nearly out of fimo buttons (or at least the ones I really liked) so I made a fresh batch... with some helpers... so there are specks of colour on my beige ones that shouldn't be there... but we had lots of fun.
I am just loving the pink ones.  Still don't know how Jane gets her's SO PERFECT.... but had lots of fun making them.  Need to make some more bright coloured ones in the next few days.

We recently had guests from the US who brought over Papertrey Ink products that I had shipped to them before their trip.  My first ever PTI goodies... and wow - am I an absolute convert.  I just adore this On My Couch Set and On My Couch Additions set.

I am visiting a friend this afternoon and wanted to bring a little gift - so made these quick and easy notelets.  I so enjoyed inking up my new stamps.  I stamped on some cardstock, cut out and adhere to a blank white card with pop dots.  Stamped the sentiment directly to the card base.  Added a cushion with a tiny pop dot.  Made a batch with various sentiments - hope she likes them.

The Royal Battle (over on the Greeting Farm) - thank you everyone for voting for us... every vote/comment is greatly appreciated.  I am also doing the happy dance as I won a free digi over on The Greeting Farm this week for leaving a comment.... Laurie's cookies... such a cutie... can't wait to colour and play with it.

Happy Tuesday.  Will be back tomorrow.

Your buttons are lovely. What do you use to get the shape.... I tried a tiny cookie cutter but I think I had the FIMO too thin.... certainly didn't turn out as nice as these!!!! Lucky you for getting the PTI sets... I love them but the shipping costs put me off getting them.... Love the little cards
