Anything Goes Challenge No. 55

Welcome fellow bloggers! As always, my Team and I are thrilled you've chosen to participate in our challenge this week. I'm doing a happy dance for so many reasons... first, I bought a new car! Second, I received a $1 raise this week! Finally, our followers button up above has reached 312! This makes me the happiest! :D
This week's wonderful sponsors are A Day for Daisies with a $12 GC for our first lucky winner, Fresh Brewed Designs, offering a $10 GC for a second winner and Cute as a Button with two digis for a third winner!
A Day For Daisies provides themed categories of over 3000 digital illustrations and a fast growing line of new clear polymer stamp sets, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!

Welcome to my little corner of cyberspace. I'm Francesca and live in Rancho Cucamonga, California. I have four wonderful children, 2 granddaughters and a very understanding and godly hubby who I have been married to for almost 30 years now. 
I’m the Owner/Artist/Designer of Cute As A Button Stamps. I’ve been a crafty, artsy kind of girl since the age of 4, like forever! My dream has always been to have a career in the creative arts. I have worked both in the non-profit and in the legal corporate world for over 30 years before opening Cute As A Button Stamps, which is now my full time gig. I have been diagnosed with several debilitating sicknesses and was also laid off from work in 2013,. I needed to find something that had no start up costs and could help support my family, thus, Cute As A Button Stamps was opened in 2013. We have grown and now have over 300 Digi Stamps, and will be offering rubber stamps, card toppers and more items very soon.
I am also an ordained minister and have been in ministry for over 27yrs and have traveled the earth sharing the Gospel of Jesus. There is nothing I love more than going about My Father's business and showing others how much He loves them and has a purpose and plan for their lives.
I am excited to share my artwork with the community and love to draw images that come to mind throughout my day and share them with you. I am not only humbled but honored to see the beautiful works of art this community makes with my images. I am so blown away and in awe of the creativity of such wonderful people.
I have such a supportive family who has been behind me since the get go. My hubby, kiddos, grandchildren, and my travels are constant inspiration for my images.
I love a life where I can make others happy but support my family and keep them happy at the same time! I’m so thankful to God for all the blessings and that thru all the unnamed obstacles during this journey.
I invite you to become a follower of my blog. I plan for great things to share with everyone. I am sure you won't want to miss any of the fun challenges we have planned. You are welcome to hang around so we can get to know each other.
All of our designs are done by owner/artist Francesca Lopez. You can visit her Challenge blog at Cute As A Button Challenge.
