Vintage Buttons and Paper Lace ~

First, I had to share this: My giveaway is celebrating 300+ followers, well you made the 300 possible! Now we are approaching 400! I must be doing something worth while here for that many to want to stop by
and comment. Thank you to all the bloggers! If you don't have a blog, no worries! I appreciate all
who come by and just say hello. I hope this is just as much fun for you as it is for me, I have an idea
that it is! Happy blog hopping!
These buttons were a winning bid on Ebay last week. You can take a close
look at the dreamy creamy ones by clicking on the photo to enlarge.
To me they look good enoughh to eat. Maybe?
I've been punching. Well, I should should say paper punching.
I had a 50% coupon for Michaels and used it for a MS punch combo.
One does corners and the other does what you see above.

I seem to have taken a liking to punching! :-)
Don't forget my giveaway HERE.
