Whimsy Stamps Challenge~buttons

The Whimsy Stamps Giraffe is such a perfect shape and size for a bookmark and my daughter is badly in need of one. In fact all the kids are, they are reading loads more since our move here..a very good thing! I decided as I went along that this is looking more boyish now so I will make some more, one for each of them and this will be for one of the boys!
The Whimsy Stamps Challenge this week is to use buttons! I had to keep them small on here so the book will still close!

This quote is from an Inkadinkado stamp set 'kid quotes', all the quotes are so cute, you will see more of them here very soon!

Couldn't resist showing you my latest craft room find, we bought this at the weekend at a Consignment store. I have had my eye on it for a few weeks and it was reduced when we went in on saturday so we had to have it! Can't wait to fill all those drawers with crafty goodies!
Whimsy Stamps have a cute digi image for sale to raise funds for Paige a 13year old girl involved in a boating accident who has since has part of her arm amputated. You can send Paige a card and register with Erin for tons of blog candy for doing so!
You can read what happened to Paige here
If you visit Whimsy Stamps you will see the cute teddy digi image and samples of card made with it. Please pop over and purchase this image and make a card for Paige, it is really lifting her spirits to receive cards from so many kind hearted crafters.
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and are having a great start to your week!
