"I Love Buttons"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who just happens to land here. I love to have you visit, if you like what you see please try to pop back another time.
For all who need a (((((HUGS)))) here are a few.  I know there are quite a few out there that are in need of your Thoughts & Prayers please try to remember them.
I am so sorry I have been missing, I have not managed to comment on all the Blogs I normally do, I will get back in stride A.S.A.P   So,busy, busy here over the past two weeks.    The house at the moment looks like a cross between a Card Shop & a Florist........I love it.   All the Birthday Cards are relegated to the Dining Room, there are so many beautiful ones I just cant put them away.  The Golden Wedding ones are spread between the Hall & Lounge.   Looks kinda! like Christmas seeing all the cards. We have had some really wonderful gifts.  As most of you know we don`t have a big family, plus John and I are not people for Big Celebrations.  We are having a Celebration Event in a few weeks which I am keeping under wraps till after it happens.   I will hopefully have some pictures to show you.  We had a lovely meal with John, Audrey and the boys on Friday which was really nice.  Since then it has been busy with people popping in.
Saturday, Hazel and I met Rita  http://rmgcreations.blogspot.co.uk/  in Glasgow. We had a great day just sitting chatting, finding out about each other.  We had never actually met before but it was like we had known each other for ever.   Rita even told me how to "link" to other peoples Blogs, I hope it works.........LOL!!!  I am pretty hopeless with the computer. 
Just waved goodbye to my friend Pearl.  I stopped typing when I heard her car coming in the drive.  More flowers plus a potted plant and cards.
My card today was made using  "buttons" I have 2 Old Fashioned Sweet Jars filled with buttons.  I love to pop my hand in and roll the buttons about.

Base card 5 x 7 approx
Pink card SB scallop Die for the edge
Page from an old Turkish Dictionary  (better on the card, it was never any use when trying to learn the language)
White card lightly distressed 
SB Heart covered in buttons from one of the Jars
Ribbon and charm from my stash
Computer Generated greeting

The Pendant is one I made to go with a dress I have bought for Elaine`s Daughters wedding in November.  

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate that you take time to do that
Till next time

I enjoy seeing buttons used on cards, but I think this is one of the best designs I've seen in a while having such a pretty design.

Treasured memories, and your family will enjoy them many years from now too. TFS & Hugs
