Hey There, Button Bird ...

Pin It


Happy Tuesday, crafty-peeps ... hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend! Lessee, only 63 days 'til the next one ...

Today's card project was created using the current Saturday Sketch from Stamping 411. For all the challenging deets, and for a look at the sketch I followed, clicky HERE.

Here's my take on the sketch:

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all of the exciting product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooo, this weekend, Sheila and I ... and our DH's ... headed downtown for dinner. We decided on a new French bistro on Clematis and were looking at our menus when Sheila's DH, Ken, made an unexpected comment:

"Sheila, you look so beautiful under these lights."

We looked up ... and then at Sheila ... and then back at Ken.

"Oh, sweetheart, thank you!" Sheila cooed coquettishly.

"Yeah, we definitely gotta get some of these lights."

Thanks so much for spending part of your very busy day with me!

~Hugs,

I love it, what a great idea with the body of the bird being a button, simply elegant once again and you had better make sure you pay back Sheila the twill you owe her. lol Melxxxxx

Love the colors of this card too! This little bird is so cute!

Rosemary said...

Love the card, there is something about brown with this blue that is really appealing! Like how the brown is distressed to add seven more texture and the bird is awfully adorable.

(hey, I could use some of those lights too - my DH might agree!)

Hope your Independence day was a good one, we were hermits and only came out for a family bbq and then reverted back to our lair - too dang hot!
