Button it!

Hiya peeps, this is a scheduled post from me today, as I will be on my way to work. I let my daughter loose with my hair yesterday and have gone from being dark blonde to deep red!! So I hope they let me in the doors :-)

It's time for another Totally Papercrafts challenge and our fab host this week, Anne, has chosen the theme 

All Buttoned Up

I made this card for my youngest daughter, Annabel, who has just got a new job in marketing. It's what she did her degree in, so she is thrilled to bits.

Of course, I couldn't find just the right colour buttons to match my papers, so I ended up cutting these off one of hubby's shirts!!! (joking!! but it did cross my mind) ;-)

Grab a cuppa and head over to the challenge blog, where you can check out the fabulous work of my teamies and take a look at this week's great prize from the Ribbon Girl.

This is so gorgeous Caroline! You've made such a lovely little scene with the papers and die-cuts - so clever!

Congrats to your daughter!!

Your comment about the shirt buttons made me smile. Many years ago when my son was doing his Art GCSE he told me he needed a piece of leather/suede for an assignment. He told me at 10 o'clock one night and he needed it for the next day!! I cut up my husband's leather jacket!
