Add a button!

Happy Friday crafty people!  How’s your week been?  Have you got fun weekend plans?

We are hoping to start on some of our garden plans tomorrow.  We bought some paving slabs for a patio and a flat pack greenhouse and we need to clear the areas for these.  We also want to get a third veg box and widen our flower beds to have some more planting space and a bit more of a shape to the garden.  We moved into our house nearly 3 years ago and we have a good sized garden but as a new build it was just a blank canvas and we’ve gradually been adding some shape but we now have a grand plan!  It’s going to be quite a bit of work but we are up for a challenge!  On Sunday we are going for lunch at the golf club with my Mum and I’m very excited to be going to the bookshop to spend my Christmas book voucher!

However I’m really here to share a crafty make!  Today I’ve got a card that I made for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge which is to add a button (how cute are these cupcakes!).


I used to love rummaging through my mum’s button box as a kid.  I seem to remember it was an old sellotape tin which was round and blue.  My button stash is a drawer in some ikea wooden drawers and I still enjoy a rummage!  I picked out three yellow buttons that I thought could be the centre of some pretty flowers.  The flowers are die cut from the Hunkydory Moonstone Fabulous Flowers set and the green flourishes are from a spellbinders die.  I added a little touch of gingham and a sentiment (clearly besotted stamp) and it’s done.


Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope whatever your weekend plans are that they get off to a good start.

  1. I love the buttons you have in the centre of the flowers. Good luck in the garden and enjoy the book shopping and carvery. My plans are food shopping and laundry, a time in the garden, a walk , and some crafting time.
