Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge... Buttons, Brads and Bows...Oh My!!

Today we are showcasing all cards topped off with buttons, bows and brads. Join us with this week's challenge by uploading your take on this week's challenge to your SCS or PCP gallery using the keyword JBE091 or post a comment on the JBE blog linking to your blog. 

I used a lot of Basic Grey goodness on this one, including the new Origins Collection (so fab, especially if you love kraft because its a perfect medley to it).  I added May Arts ribbon, some leftover fabric brads and button, and stamped my sentiment with Rachelle Miller's Sentiments 1 by Stampavie.

Be sure to visit the other JBE Rockstars for more fun and inspiration!

To commemorate the passing of the great novelist J.D. Salinger, I leave you with a few of my favorite  Salinger quotes... 


I'm sick of just liking people. I wish to God I could meet somebody I could respect.

How do you know you're going to do something, until you do it? 

I'm sick of not having the courage to be an absolute nobody. 

Mothers are all slightly insane.

People never believe you.

People never notice anything. 

He had a theory, Walt did, that the religious life, and all the agony that goes with it, is just something God sics on people who have the gall to accuse Him of having created an ugly world.

A bit cynical... but when you think about it in mass, I roll scratch my head, shrug my shoulder and think... mmm... somewhat true. Thanks for stopping in on this Tuesday friends!
