REcycling Mothers Day

Sorry it has been quiet here for a few days, we have been away for a long weekend catching up with family and friends. It has been so lovely, the weather has been very kind to us and we managed to fit a lot into a short time. Even so, it is so lovely to be home!
The challenge is up on Tilda & Co and it is a double challenge again this week, combining a Mothers Day theme with a theme chosen by yours truly, recycling!
Donna also has a special prize this week donated by Sally of Bootiful Stampz! Pop on over to see the gorgeous stamps she is donating along with a Stazon ink pad, what a fabulous prize.
I also have to thank Donna for fixing my banner, the wording wasn't quite right and she did great job without me even asking, thanks Donna you are a sweetie!
For my recycling bits I used a ribbon taken from a delicious box of Thornton's chocs and 3 sweet floral shaped buttons that I took from an old dress that one of my girls used to wear. I did attempt to make a chipboard sentiment out of a cereal box but it didn't look quite right so I used a rub-on instead, I have kept the word though and I will use it in the future, Never throw anything away! It will always come in useful!

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Crate paper - twig, Magnolia stamp 'Tilda baking', 'towel', Panduro heart stamp. Ribbon from box of chocs and old buttons. Royal Langnickel rub-on sentiment.

Very pretty, I love all the stamped bits, especially the wee towel hung up in one corner :) Have got some purple ribbon lying that I saved from goodness knows where, might give this challenge a bash... Glad you had a good weekend away - we have a couple of days off for midterm tomorrow and Tuesday, but we're staying put :(

The ribbon and buttons are fantastic! I love this color combination. It is always nice to get away from home, but even better to get back! Why is that? I guess it's true . . . there's no place like home! GREAT card!
