cute as a button

Morning girls
My thoughts and prayers lie with all those affected by the devastating tornado and storms which struck in Oklahoma yesterday.  I'm forever complaining about our awful weather here in Scotland but we're so lucky not to suffer the loss of precious life and such devastation due to the weather.  My heart goes out to those who lost their loved ones and their homes.

Today's card is for our new challenge on Crafty Sentiments Designs and this week it's all about buttons.
So if you fancy playing along make sure you add a couple or three to your creation.

My niece asked if I could make a baby boy card for her so I managed to kill two birds with one stone.  Isn't it brilliant when it works out that way?
I'm keeping this short and sweet as I've a few cards that need doing so I want to get on this morning then get out in the lovely sunshine seeing as we finally have some.
Happy Crafting
