This week my Mum has been staying with me helping out whilst I have had a few hospital appointments. Her support and love is something that I feel very special to have. So what better way to show her this than to make a card for her.

I loved this sentiment as I feel it is so true-if you can't quite see it from the photo it says-'Mums are like buttons. They hold things together'-see what I mean!

Mum had mentioned how she liked a card I had made that was black and pink so I went for these colours added a few buttons held together with black and white bakers twine.

I will be entering this into the following challenges:

Cas-ual Fridays -to use black and pastels
Ribbon carousel -to use bakers twine
Fab n Funky -in honour of Mums

The sentiment is from pink petticoat


  1. Lovely card for your mum Sandie. Give her a big hug for me. Lynn xx

  2. Lovely sentiment on a lovely card! The black box embellished with the three buttons and twine is very classy.
