Twinkling Tuesday: You're SSSPECIAL

Happy Tuesday girls! Did you have a wonderful NSD? It was a great weekend here! Thanks to all of you who stopped by and left a comment. I enjoyed every single one of them!!
For those of you that are new, today is Twinkling Tuesday, where the super talented Madelynn gives us a sketch. She's just 8 years old and already sooo talented!! Madelynn is back this week after letting her brothers take a turn in the spotlight. And oh, what a great sketch it is this week!


I created a sssweet card for my little man using the adorable snake from the Heartfelt Friends set at 2RedBananas. I have to tell you, this snake is the reason I picked this set. Isn't this just how you feel about your little ones --- you love them so much you could just swallow 'em up whole!

The challenge over at 2RedBananas this week was to create a monochromatic card and thus my all green card. (kinda like last week's TT card! what can i say - i like green!) Something is wonky with my lighting or my editing as the sssnake is mounted on the same Old Olive as the base and sentiment.
And Heather - this is for you. I know you asked me forever ago how I stored my buttons. It made me giggle because there is no rhyme or reason to them! Here are the ones that are super handy.

Be sure to visit all the rest of the Twinklettes to see their take on Madelynn's sketch this week. It's a talented bunch of girls and you'll be happy that you did! Christi is our featured Twinklette so be sure to leave her some love!!
I'll be back later to announce the winners of my Blog Candy from the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Hop! Have a beautiful day ladies!

Hi Cassie..Your card is `gorgeous` Love all those buttons!!
Oh the memories that brings...mmmm
I have trillions..
A lot from my Grandma ..I always wondered why she kept them..
When I used to ask she would say
`You never know when you might need one`
Funny how they got passed to me eventually...
Have a lovely Wednesday..TFS:)
