Haberdashery challenge

I decided today not to use a maze book as a birthday card for the two year old (see yesterday's post) and used this week's dare to make a real birthday card :))

G'day all, Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week
Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
Alright then, grab that old sewing basket of yours or raid your sewing machine drawer, have a look at what creative bits are hidding away there....maybe it's buttons, a zip, hook & eye's, ribbons, braids, Dressmaking patterns, tape measures,Pins & Needles, lace, safety pins or embroidery thread....
so many wonderful little treasures just waiting to be added to your next card :O)
I'm going to add one more rule....
Yes you may stitch on your card, but that can't be your only haberdashery item....
Haberdashery items used are buttons, satin ribbon for bow and cotton daisy 'ribbon'. I think this is much better for a two year old's birthday, but then I'm biased! LOL

Here is the maze book I made for the 'big' sister.......she will be four on the 31st July :)

Front cover and tags. I've left them blank so Grandma Sue can add some bits of her own and I thought that Harriet could use the teddy tag as a little bookmark.

And finally, the card I made yesterday has been photographed. This was another first attempt and I'm quite pleased with it.
Phew................goodnight!
