Stealing Buttons?

Afternoon all - how are you this bright and sunny Sunday?  Still a tad chilly first thing, it was shivery cold in Church this morning.  But the sun is doing its best to make today feel like Spring.

It's been a while since I joined in the HERE COMES THE BOYS challenge but I fancied a try at their Must Have Buttons theme this week.

I knew I wanted three white buttons for my card but do you think I could find three in my button box?  I had white ones but they were either square or flower shaped.  Not what I needed.  Ooh, there's a round one, oh, it's blue.  Blast.  At this point I am starting to think about stealing some buttons off Toad's work shirts but before it reached those depths, thankfully, I found three identical white buttons.  Hurrah.

Stamped image is LOTV Playing Golf
now you can see why I wanted round white buttons - golfballs!
Sentiment is also LOTV Vintage Labels Just To Say
Image painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Little Sizzlets Earth Tones
Buttons are by Papermania

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Cute card Squirrel, love that sweet golfer. Isn't it funny no matter how many buttons you have you never have the number or colour you need!
