Nolan & Bullfrog - CK #95

Hello friends. I hope you are all doing well. Things are pretty good down here in H Town. My foot is just about well with just a bit still of soreness in my toe. I now have 3 lovely wound marks on the front of my foot, but I'm putting some scar oil on it every day to see if that will help fade the marks over time. I'm also hoping to get back to doing my daily 30 minute lunch time walk next week. It's been a long time and I really miss getting out and away from my office for just a little while.

Today I have a card for the Creative Knockouts challenge - use your Buttons! How fun. Don't we all just have a huge stash of buttons that we never use. I'm glad to take this chance to use up a few of mine. In fact, I have a whole case of buttons somewhere and I can't find them. Lucky I had another stash that I got these from.

Isn't he just so cute. Myself, I'd never touch a frog, but boys seem to really like them.

  8. I have so many buttons inherited from my Mom and I just love them! I feel like a little kid just sorting through them. Your little boy with the frog is so cute. All boy, for sure.
