Dream Valley Challenge 16 - Buttons

Hi all!  Just a really quick post to show a card I made for my mother-in-laws birthday :-)  I used a cute little Kaisercraft stamp, my Copics and a beautiful button!  I also coloured around the image using my chalks (been a while since they've been out of the drawer) as my colourless blender ran out.  I'm going to enter it into the Dream Valley Challenge 16: Buttons... Now I'm not sure if it qualifies as I only have one 'button' not multiple 'buttons'.  Either way I needed to make the card and I'm rather happy with how it turned out :-)  Head over here to see the challenge, the design teams stunning examples and the other gorgeous entries xoxox

I'll also quickly show the card I helped my two beautiful boys make.  They absolutely LOVE their Nanny and were only to happy to draw her a picture.  Evan (5 1/2 y.o.)  drew the picture on the front, a cockatoo looking at flowers and a love heart (cockatoos are his thing atm... darling boy) and Royce (3 1/2 y.o.) drew the rainbow on the inside (it's the ONLY thing he will draw lol).  Evan also wrote 'Nanny' and 'Evan' on the inside... I'm so proud of his writing considering 12 months ago it was a struggle to get him to do any form of drawing or writing.


  1. Ahhhh the card your sons made is so lovely, their Nanny will love this.

    Oh your card is beautiful! I love that button and how you placed it with the flowers. It certainly does qualify for our challenge at Dream Valley, so thanks for joining in with us. CoB

  2. Beautiful card and your sons made this into an extra special card for their Nanny. Thank you for playing with us at Dream Valley Challenges.
