DeNami Design Beautiful Buttons Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the DeNami Beautiful Buttons Blog Hop.  There are 30 talented ladies participating in today’s blog hop to inspire you.  You should have arrived at my blog from Ginny if you are following the order of inspiration.  If you missed someone just return to DeNami's Blog and continue from where you left off, or you can start at the beginning if you like.  J   

I chose to use the lovely Mimi w/Birthday Cake, put some hearts in her arms, and wrote “Be Mine” on the top heart.  

Here is a close up of the buttons.

 

A little bit of information about today’s Beautiful Buttons Blog Hop.

I've seen amazing designs from all the participants of this hop! I like button, but find it hard to incorporate in my cards. This one was really tough. I had 3 different ideas, and finally went with the one you're seeing.

I'm having lots of fun seeing all the creative ways to use buttons. ;)
