Three Minute Twitterpated buttons

It's been a manic week and I had literally a few minutes to put together a card for Three Minute Thursday this week - which is exactly why I run this slot, for all those "what do you mean you need a note card to send your mother right now?" moments! Come and have a look:

Sometimes you need look no further than some gorgeous embellishments for a bit of inspiration and these Twitterpated buttons certainly did it for me! They come in two gorgeous little flower designs and you get both Baja Breeze and Blushing Bride versions of each in the pot. Aren't these divine?!

Picking out words on a sentiment in different colours is as easy as pie with markers and because they're made of exactly the same ink as the classic ink pads, there's no problems with matching colours either. I used my Pear Pizzazz pen to doodle stems for my flowers too; the leaves, which are from the new Bright Blossoms set, are stamped using my Pear Pizzazz ink pad.

Here's what you'll need to make today's card:
Stamps: Bright Blossoms, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Markers, Twitterpated designer buttons, Simply Scored, stamp-a-majig
I'd be delighted to order any of these items for you and can have them delivered to your address in the UK. I'm committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to offer help and advice. To place your order, just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.

I must apologise for the appalling photos today. This is the reason:

It just keeps raining! In fact, if you live in another country and were thinking of coming to the UK, this could well be the year to do it because it surely must have already rained all the rain that could possibly be expected this year!

Thank you for visiting here today. I'll be back tomorrow with a fun way of using my new Bordering on Romance stamp set. Hope to see you then,

  15. Vicky your card is so cute! and it's in my favourite colour combo of pink and green.

    It's very wet in our part of the world too......but it means that instead of gardening, we can craft!!Yaaaay!

  17. Love this simple and very elegant card…. less is sure more on this beauty. Love the buttons and have to get some. TFS Twitterpad buttons?

  18. Love the cute button flowers :-D
    I bet we're in for a summer of rain - with wimbledon, jubliee and olympics to come we're bound to get a lot more downpours! At least umbrella manufacturers are flouishing....

  20. Love your button flowers. They are gorgeous. They make a fab little thank you. Whoa look at that rain, we got some this afternoon too. x

  21. Lovely as always, love the white on white and the simplicity of the whole card. We too had a very wet summer but the last week or so we have been having glorious autumn weather. The rain does get a bit depressing, good for craft though! Helen (Sydney)
