Buttons Galore and More and MFT Blog Hop

buttonsgalorebloghop_2012jul26

 

Hi all and thanks for stopping by today!  MFT has teamed up with Buttons Galore and More to do a Blog Hop showcasing products from both companies!  To see the entire list of participating designers, please head to the MFT Blog.  You'll want to leave a comment on EACH designer's blog because there is $100 in prizes up for grabs.  MFT will be giving away 2, $25 Gift Certificates, and Buttons Galore & More will be giving away 2, $25 button assortments.  The deadline to comment is July 29th and the winners of all prizes will be announced on July 30th on the MFT and BG&M blogs, so check back to see if you've won!  (I'm crossing my fingers for you). 

I’m using Clearly Sentimental About Success for my card. The buttons are the coconut shell buttons and I thought perfect for a masculine card. And I think this one would be great for a young man going off to college or starting out on a career, don’t you? I’m also use an Antique Leaf Brad in the upper right corner for balance. The sentiment was stamped on a Die-namics Clearly Sentimental Label die cut. I created a little scene at the bottom with my Die-namics Skyline Border, Die-namics Solid Skyline, and my Die-namics Star Border. MFT card stock use is Whip Cream and Hot Fudge.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.
