I just had to make a card

It's been one of those days - well, one of those weeks - mum is now in intermediate care at a local nursing home for rehabilitation and I went to see her again this afternoon - the end of a tiring week.

This is the only opportunity I've had to make anything today, but just thought I'd do a quick card for this week's challenge on Dottie's World (just scraping in with this one). In fact I started to think about this earlier, but it hadn't come together.

I've used downloads of background and 'walkies' from Girl about town and just added the three buttons (but, confession, they really are brads - sorry!), the ribbon on Fifi and three little flowers that weren't exactly handmade (die cut long ago). So all in all, I suppose you could say that I've cheated with this one. I'll leave you to decide. These were the instructions for the recipe:

1 of the downloads
1 ribbon
3 buttons
1 flower, but it has to be handmade (not a shop bought one, oh no!
