Button It

Hi everyone,

What glorious weather we've had! We had a lovely day yesterday, the kids and I walked our dog round the seafront and then with my hubby we went to a couple of local beer gardens. But, all good things must come to an end, and seeing as though we live on the north east coast-it's ended :(.

As the weather is slightly awful I've had chance to make another card, which I'm entering into a few challenges. The first one is Lili of the Valley where the theme this week is 'Button It'. I'm also entering it into Sweet Stop SketchesSSS128 where there is a lovely sketch to follow. Finally I'm entering it into abc-challenge where anything goes.

The christening image is from Lili Of The Valley and is just perfect for christenings, I've used it loads. The paper is from Raspberry Road and I love them all. I've punched the flowers out using different sized retro flower punches, using the same paper and distressed the edges. The buttons and string from my stash. I can't remember where the sentiment is from, but when I find the name of the site I'll add it on as they have loads of fantastic stamps.

Short and sweet today as I'm almost off to my mam's for Sunday dinner, I am sooo looking forward to it. I've been poorly most of the week, but by the way my tummy is rumbling I've got my appetite back.

Take care, hugs
