Arty Girlz 68: button it + CBCC080 Pocketful of posies

I needed to make a card from mum for my brother's birthday - if by any chance, David, your eyes stray to my blog, please look away now!

I've used a section of PSX paper Baseball Jersey, made a pocket and put the Happy Birthday card in it. There were buttons printed on the left side, which I've covered with real buttons and one to match on the pocket. This is one of those occasions when peel offs have been added for the Dear Son.

As the card has a pocket, it qualifies for the CBCC080 challenge to 'include a pocket' and also the current challenge on Arty Girlz 68: button it! - to use a button on a project.


A lovely surprise

Yesterday our postie brought me a lovely surprise - a package from the US - and this is what it contained:


Beautiful 6 x 6 double sided papers, vellum quote, lovely stamps and a gorgeous card. Thanks to a very precious fellow Saltine (if you haven't heard of Salt yet, please pop over and have a look).
