Button Swap Blog Hop-Part 2

Are you ready?  Today's the day!  The Button Swap Blog Hop is happening.  We were partnered up by the Great Cindy Wimmer of Sweet Bead Studio, then sent off buttons to our partners.  I was partnered with the adorable Shannon Chomanczuk of For My Sweet Daughter.  She sent me these wonderful buttons in this cute little box.  I love them. I put my back out this last Sunday, but I managed to finish my piece late last night. There were a couple of other things I wanted to try with this piece and the other buttons, but couldn't get them done. So here is my piece, thank you miss Shannon for your great buttons.  And please visit the list of participants below and see what everyone has done with their buttons. 

And now for the list for you to check out everyone's blog: 
If the list isn't clickable, click on the link for Cindy's blog at the beginning of the post and it will take you to where you'll find the complete clickable list.  Please let me know what you think of my piece. Thanks.

Button Swap Blog Hop

Well, tomorrow is the big day.  Unfortunately, I put my back out last Sunday and have not been able to stand or sit to finish my piece. I'm still hoping to get it finished tonight, however if I don't, please check back tomorrow for the list of the participants and check them all out.  I'll post my piece later this week when it's finished if I don't finish tonight.  Thanks for understanding.  Meanwhile, here's the buttons I sent to my great partner, Shannon, of For My Sweet Daughter.  And after that, you'll see the WONDERFUL buttons she sent me and the cutest little box that she sent them in.  Isn't it adorable.  Can you guess which one of the handmade buttons she sent in the last picture I'm using in my piece?  You'll have to wait till tomorrow or later this week to see it finished. :)
