I see skies of blue….. clouds of white

Bright blessed days….dark sacred nights
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow…..so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces…..of people ..going by

I see friends shaking hands…..sayin’.. how do you do
They’re really sayin’……i love you.

And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself …….what a wonderful crafty world…Oh yeah….

The charm is another from my Three Altered Charms for Thee swap on Swap-bot from Snarglebean.  The Button Fairy is from the Valentine Button Fairy Swap also on Swap-bot made by Sleepingrover2010. 

The charm is made by stamping the image on white fabric and embellished with beads and a small apple charm on the other side.  It is stuffed slightly, too.  This is truly neat and unusual.  One side is stamped with a butterfly and the other with a face.  Both sides have a bit of beading.  It is simple and lovely!

The button fairy appears to have a hand drawn face and the wings are embellished with glitter.  I love how she did the tail with the curly cue.  Lovely, lovely.  My Thankful garland that Christy made for me is getting quite full with all of the button fairies I have received. 

Tomorrow please remember to wear red!

National Wear Red Day—February 1, 2008— is a day when Americans nationwide will wear red to show their support for women’s heart disease awareness.  This observance promotes the Red Dress symbol and provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in this life-saving awareness movement by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, or tie, or Red Dress Pin.

Do it for all the loved ones in your life!
