Designer Dodge Balls? Who knew? My first thought was to actually make a designer dodge ball, but when I saw the tea pot for this week and I had just recently bought a "button" punch, I had to go with this!
This is my very FIRST round card EVER! Not in my comfort zone to say the least! Then, after punching all those buttons, I had to add the thread to all of them! So this card has been sitting on my desk since Sunday! Finally, last night, I got the courage to thread all those buttons and go figure-I would choose a FIBER thread to use, not nearly as easy as linen thread would have been! Oh well, I survived my card ordeal and it is NOTHING when compared to Sandy who is trying her best to SURVIVE Breast Cancer!
I know I am late and I'm supposed to post a memo somewhere, but I don't know where and it's okay, I just wanted to play along this week as Breast Cancer is near and dear to my heart. My little sister is a survivor! 13 years and counting!
Thank you so much for looking! :)

Hi there! Ooh...very very pretty Celisa! I know what you mean about threading through the buttons! Ha! You and I were in the same boat this week! Giggle! I love that the teapot inspired you to use your new button punch to make this awesome card for Sandy! Thanks so much for jumping on board the Destination Station!
No worries about coming in the late gate! There are always fun teapotters back there! Tee hee! I hope this comment finds you back injury all healed up! And your toes doing better! Yikes!!!
Sandy will be so touched by your card and determination to make one this week!

Your buttons - and the fibre - were well worth the effort! I'm sure you'll make more round cards now you've discovered how fun they can be.
I have a thick-eyed darning needle that I use for threading fibres through buttons - saves on the temper ;-).
