Freebie Friday 26 - buttons galore!


Hello again! Happy Friday to all of you! As I had mentioned in my previous post, I took advantage of sleeping in a little bit this morning, so I didn't get to post my Freebie Friday as early as I normally do. Wanna see what you're playing for this week? I've become quite the fan of embellishments - especially buttons! So, I thought I would share a mini-smorgasbord of buttons with you. Here is the assortment you'll be getting:Lots of fun shapes and sizes for you to play with!

Now, all you need to do is leave me a comment on this post with your email address or blog url (basically, enough information so I can contact you) by Midnight Sunday, July 5th. I'm giving you an extra day since 4th of July is a holiday for us in the US and many of you will probably be out and about at a barbeque or fireworks show! The winner will be announced on Monday's blog post, so you can check back then. You can leave me a comment about anything or you can answer the following question: When was the last time you saw fireworks? You can take that to be literal or figurative....whichever you'd like to share! ;)

Have a great 4th of July weekend! Ciao for now...

Happy Friday, Rose! I hope you had a good birthday!
I love fireworks of any kind. We are in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon, and we can see them from all over the city. We just go out on our deck and can see them from all directions lighting up the sky. So incredible!
Have a great weekend, Alicia

Hi Rose!

Sorry, I had some serious typos in my previous post...

What a great freebie! I love the packaging you made:) Very cute.

The last time I saw fireworks was one exact year ago today. Don't ask me why the particular place we go to see them always has them on the 3rd. It makes no sense to me:) We will get to celebrate 2 days, though. We will see fireworks this evening and get a bushel of crabs with our neighbors tomorrow. Tons of fun!

I hope you have a great holiday!

What a great Freebie Friday Giveaway!! Our firework tradition is sit on top of the helipad at the Sheriff Station and watch the fireworks from there. Great view!

Jane said...

Hi! forgot to ask.......I'm so interested in buying some stamin up stuff but don't have luck with shipping (to Zagreb, Croatia) do you know of a website or person that sells and delivers to Croatia?
thanks, bye!

Every year I watch the fireworks in our church's small town. The church offers catered hot sandwiches, homemade pies (made by the ladies of the church), ice cream and a whole lot more. It's a fantastic day and the town follows the days' events with a spectular fireworks display! The town size usually triples on this one day! Have a Happy 4th! Thanks for the opportunity on your blog candy!

Very cute freebie. This would be a fun customer/hostess gift.
We have a block party each year, so I see fireworks every year right outside my house...they're legal here. Once in a while, we'll stay to watch the fireworks at Disneyland too.
Have a Happy 4th! :)

I am not a big fan of fireworks. When my Step daughter was younger we donated our money to the local vendors and we were dissappointed every time!
I live in an area where I can usually see at least 2 different displays out my window, so I don't have to battle the crowds.
Oh and the last time I saw them was 2 weeks ago, we were in Orlando and we saw the Epcot fireworks from our hotel room!

Hi Rose,
Happy July 4 to you. We look forward to see fireworks at the State Fairground here in Raleigh NC every year. This year is no different.

The last time I saw fireworks was with my children at Disneyland :) We went up to the top level of the parking structure & was able to see the magical show happen atop of the Disney castle.

Rose,
Your blog has inspired me to use embellishments a bit more!
Last year we enjoyed fireworks in MN. Tomorrow we will be watching them at my brothers cabin here in SD. My hubby and brother like to put on a big display; I look forward to the sparklers with the kids! ~:-)
Thank you for the chance to win!
Happy 4th!

We saw fireworks last 4th of July. Our city is one of the few around that still allows them!

Happy 4th Rose! Last time I saw fireworks last night. Our neighbors were setting some off in their backyard so my hubby and I went out to see. Last time I saw legal fireworks was in May. We went to a baseball game and they did fireworks after.
Great candy!

Hi Rose!
1.) Hmmm...fireworks? Jonathan just got me a pair of earrings through the National Geographic Society that are handmade in Taiwan, of various shades of amber and other semi-precious stones. They are in a burst pattern, and I call them my fireworks earrings. Wearing them today, in fact!

2.) Love the term "blurfing". SOOO using that in sentence by the end of the day!!

3.) Just made a card for a friend's baby shower with some vintage buttons that my mom found at my Grandma's house. This button set is further inspiration!

Love ya!

Very good assortment! Just found your blog and I'm checking through it! Amazing!

I love your blog - check it almost daily in a reader. I don't like dealing with the mosquitoes, so I usually watch the fireworks from my bedroom window. Not quite as fun as lying on the ground and having them explode above you.
