Mum's First Challenge...

Hiya...Hope you all had a lovely weekend and those off you on half term school hols last week had a good one. I'm still not feeling too good so popped to the doctors this morning and been given a weeks course of Amoxicillin to clear up a sinus infection, so hopefully will be better soon : )

I was chatting to my Mum the other day about how much fun I'm having on my DT's and how it sometimes makes you create projects outside your comfort zone resulting in many more styles then before. Anyway she has asked me if I would set some challenges for her to play along too, so her first challenge was my challenge this week over at Totally Papercrafts which is Button It Up!  

My lovely Mum say's she struggles with buttons, but you wouldn't think so looking at these stunning creations she came up with.Such fabulous designs Mum and loving your buttons. My Mum has not caught the blogging bug...not yet anyway lol..So just had to share her gorgeous creations with you on my blog.
I have added my watermark to these cards but they were created by my Mum...

Party Time Tuesdays #144 ~ Anything Goes

Oh Wendy How wonderful for you both to be able to share your love of crafting together - My Mum wasn't a papercrafter but she boosted my ego no end every time I showed her what I'd done - even when it was terrible she admired it!! LOL

Both of these cards really have the Wow factor. Tell your Mum her work is awesome. I must admit you did have me a bit confused as I thought your poorly head of the past week had made you lose the plot when I saw you name entered. Lol!!! Tell Mum to keep up the awesome creations.
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely creation with us at Totally Papercrafts.
