Life is Fragile. Handle with Prayer

This card doesn’t look finished. What do you think needs to be removed or added?
I was really excited to see Splitcoast Stampers tutorial on making Paper buttons and just had to try making one. I have a Sizzix die Button #5 that makes four different sizes of buttons at one time, so yesterday I had a grand time filling up pill bottles with scrap paper buttons. I used the middle round size button to make the one on this card. I used Rangers Glossy Accents to make the clear coating on my buttons.
Stamps: Spoon (Posh), teacup (Auntie Amy), sentiment (A.J. Stamps),


  1. Great how you have the teaspoon and the teabag coming out of the cup. I would probably just move the sentiment to the left corner as everything now is on the right side.

  2. Oh how pretty! I don't think it needs a thing! I love the spoons behind the cup! I have always loved this sentiment.... made it into a cross stitch wall hanging many years ago! So true! Love your pretty paper button! It came out great! If you haven't already, this would be perfect for this weeks Stampin Sisters in Christ! Have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. Hello Dolores - this is gorgeous! I love your sentiment - it is so true and perfect with your lovelt teacip! Your buttons are gorgeous - I am going to have to check out SCS for the tutorial - they are a gorgeous touch! Love it! Thanks for joining us at the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge, we love to see you! {{{hugs}}}

  5. Hi Dolores! I just wanted to thank you for your sweet comment on the Stampin Sisters in Christ blog! I surely didn't want anyone "cut to the quick" by that devotion... and I am not aware of anything to forgive! I appreciate your sweet heart in wanting to be sure you never hurt anyone... but I'm sure you have not! :) You've always been wonderful to us! I do appreciate your heart to share that the devotion touched you and I pray it touched us all to continue pressing on in this area!
