Whoopsi Daisy - Buttons or Bows

Good morning all. Well I got two thirds of Mother's Day yesterday and will probably get the other third this evening! Eldest left things a little too late so bought me a birthday card and crossed off birthday and wrote Mother's Day.......did buy Bailey's to go with it though. Youngest bought one of those alternative cards...."Mother likes her house like her vodka.......NEAT"!!! Goodness knows what child no 2  will arrive home with!! Life is never dull with them.....

Got a trip to the dentist today for my six month check up, hopefully I won't need any treatment.

It's time for another challenge at  Whoopsi Daisy  and this week it's team A's turn to share their inspiration with you. The theme this week is "Buttons or Bows" or you can do Anything Goes if you use a Whoopsi Daisy image on your project. 

Using a pre-coloured digi from sheet #406, die cut with a labels one nestie and layered onto a fancy nestie. Embossing folder from Couture Creations. All dies from Spellbinders. Ribbon, sentiment, stickles, button and silver cord from my stash
