A Banner and a card

Apologies in advance for the photo quality. Still have not located the elusive camera battery charger. You get the idea of the banner from the first photo. I was over at a friends house on Friday to do some crafting, and decided that we needed a little project. So, armed with Vern the Vagabond and the sewing room die, we set about creating a little banner, based on one I saw on the Maya Road site with the word create on it.

This is one of the dress-forms and spool and button. Each one is slightly different.
The papers that I used are October Afternoon- Thrift Shop. Oh how I have loved these papers. Alas I am coming to the end of my stack and am already in mourning.

This week is my Mum's Birthday, she loves to stitch and sew, so I used the dress-form yet again to make a card for her. I must say I was unsure about buying this one. I didn't know if I would get enough use from it, but it has earned a place in my heart already. I am entering the card and banner in the Simon Says Stamp and show challenge. The theme is buttons this week.
