Happy Father's Day


It's the first Sunday in September and that means it's Father's Day here in Australia today.  I made this card for my Husband.  He loved his card although he isn't sure about the buttons.  If only he knew how much bother I went to to put them there.  I was going to glue them in place but because I had put thread in the button holes and tied them off on the back they wouldn't sit flat, so I ended up pulling the card apart and redoing it and sewing the buttons to the ribbon. Besides buttons are popular at the moment aren't they!!!! Anyway after I played with it this is the finished result. Hope you like it.
