All buttoned up!

It's time for a new challenge but before we get to that, did you see the Top Ten from April? If you haven't had a chance to check out the post, it is right below this one so be sure to take a look.

Now on to this week's challenge. REMINDER: You MUST include Close To My Heart products to enter our challenges. Thank you.

This wee we are working with buttons. We want to see how you incorporate buttons into your cards, layouts and other projects. One of our sponsors for the month is joining us today so let's start off with a look at Angel's button creation:

Fabulous use of buttons, Angel! Thanks for joining us this week and for sponsoring H2H this month!

Don't forget, our other fantastic sponsor is Sharon. You can visit both of these gals by clicking their names and leaving them some love at their blogs. Thanks ladies!

Now for the rest of the button creations from the DT:









What great ways to use buttons! Now it's your turn. Add some buttons to your project and then link up here. We can't wait to see how you button-up your artwork this week!

I love everyone's card! Mine is another card for my grandson. Since I will mail it, I used the MS punch so the buttons would be flat.
