Button love, and some family pics

Hello lovelies, I hope your Mother's Day was full of love and laughter!
Mine was great, in fact the whole weekend was awesome... it's the favourite time of ours, when hubby's home and we can do stuff together.
It's my second Mother's Day (Zuzia is turning 20 months soon), and we went with her to a big playground.
She's only just started discovering various equipment there, and she was having a blast trying everything out. Befriending the dinosaur,

Swinging her little heart out,

Discovering secret passages,

Or chillaxing, watching other kids play...

Also, I forgot to share the pics from the last week's trip to the local craft market. They had a pen with baby animals, that Zuzia blissfully roamed through with daddy. I love this photo, with the cutest little goat munching on daddy's zipper (that's his favourite animal), and Zuzia expressing her opinion on this :) She thought it's utterly hilarious (and it was :))

I hope I didn't bore you yet, I do have some cards to share too!
I apologize to those of you who are tired of me stuffing buttons on just about any card I make... not only they're cute and versatile, come in many forms & endless colours, but they're excellent space fillers & accent builders. I can't resist them, I'm not even trying... :)


Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Rustic Cream, Raspberry Fizz); paper: Kaisercraft; stamps: Layers Of Color (label), Hero Arts (sentiment), Grace Taylor (butterfly); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Balck, London Fog), Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap); Copics; buttons; sewing machine; lace trim; QuicKutz embossing folder (Retro Diamonds)

The card above was made on the basis of the two fabulous challenges - CR84FN27 (colours), and Card Patterns sketch 114:

I've also got this little number, inspired by this card by Jo (Reddydyisco), who's this week's Featured Stamper on SCS (FS222).
I also took the colours from Inkspirations Colour Challenge #68 (I only have a little, though... I used white gel pen to highlight the stamens of the roses)


Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft, white, American Crafts (brown); paper: My Mind's Eye; stamps: Flourishes (Lenten Rose), Layers Of Color (sentiment); ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa); Copics; buttons; rhinestones; white gel pen (Signo)
