An Old Button

Use it up Tuesdays is a lovely challenge blog, which I would join in more often if I had more time, don't we all say that at least once a day?  their main principle is, as it says, Use it up, we all have stash lying around forever. Well, this week they are going further and have asked us to use up TWO old  items from our stash. Oh! that could have been painful. I have managed though, my two old items are the beautiful old button from my button box, passed on from my mother,  along with the organza ribbon, from my ribbon box. I have some more recent touches, the Paris stamp and the Fran-tage, both from Stampendous.
I am also entering this card into Make It Mondays - Anything Goes,

  10. your post! You ever see those movies where they're running down a hall and the hall just never seems to end?? I feel that way with my scraps! I do use them and yet I'm baffled at how they never seem to dwindle. LOL..ah well...thank goodness for challenges like this that help us along. I hope someday I'm not still running down the hall... :)
