Rain, Rain, Go Away.....


People look at me funny when I tell them that I hate spring. Why, you ask? Because I hate the rain and wet and mud and sloppiness of spring. I love the sunshine and the warmth and the flowers....and you need the rain for the flowers to grow....yah, yah. But ....blech, I hate the rain. So this card is me. Although this birdie looks much cuter than me.....especially when I'm pushing my way through the wind with the rain pelting me in the face as I walk to work from the parking lot across the street. One time, my umbrella even flew up and turned itself inside out. And it wasn't one of those nice, little, elegant umbrellas....it was a one of those giant ones from IKEA that you can see coming from a mile away. Just a tad embarassing.

Anyhoo, this card is for today's challenge over at the All That Scraps Blog. The challenge is very easy....to use buttons!! And I loves me my buttons!!!

I chose to play with one of the adorable birdie images from the Tweeties stamp set, which was released last week. I stamped him on Wausau cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used my Copics to colour him in. I was inspired by the colours in the Urban Prairie dp by Basic Grey and coloured him up accordingly. I used my new fancy schmancy Octagon shaped Nesties and the cardstock is all Bazzill. The sentiment is from the Spring Thing stamp set and I punched it out using one of my oval punches. I pop dotted everything and then threaded some buttons with embroidery floss and attached them in a cluster using glue dots. The final touch was adding a few highlights on the umbrella with a white gel pen.



Later today, some other wonderful creations by some other DT members will be posted on the ATS Blog, so be sure to hop over and check 'em out! And then get busy makin' your own button lovin' card!!!

Have a super Wednesday, stampers!!!!

I whole=heartedly agree with you about the rain - I hate it! There is nothing worse than dealing with muddy dog paws! Give me a drought anyday! LOL

Love the colors you used Kimmie and the pairing of the sentiment. I would have never thought of that. I don't care much for the rain. It makes me feel blahhhh. Nothing blah about your card though. It's fantastic!
