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:

You did it! I'm amazed that although you've been in pain, you were able to complete your pieces for the button swap. Your button creations are beautiful with the lace and fabric acting as a backdrop for the focal button - so pretty! I hope your back heals quickly...please take it easy! :-)

What a lovely cuff this is! Fabric and buttons, what a classic combination, yet your use of it is just great and very trendy too!

Hope you are feeling better. I like the card holder. What is it constructed of?

CraftyHope said...

Wow, you really did power through some pain to get this done in time. I love the frilly-ness of it!
Here's hoping you get to feeling better in no time. :)

Thanks so much for all the compliments/comments. My biz card holder is made of 24 gauge copper sheet, that I then hammered and textured and then folded/bent into shape. Then I attached the lace. After that I cut the dark steel wire and put it through both the button and the other ribbon, wrapped around to the front and spiraled to hold in place. Plus I used a little 24 gauge copper wire for the tendrils on the long side of steel wire.

The combination of button and lace is absolutely gorgeous. I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, and I hope that you feel better soon <3

I'm glad that you were able to finish at least one of the pieces, though, and I wish you a speedy recovery!
