Twas The Nightmare Of The Tiny Buttons

Morning all.  I can't believe that I have posted something every day this week - what a difference it makes not being at work, lol.  Shame I have to go back on Monday, especially in this heat.  It will be furnace temperatures in my little corner as the room I share gets the sun all day.  Blergh.

Well it's ages since I did the Papertake Weekly Challenge but I am having a go at their Buttons n Bows challenge with this card

Another of my new Wild Rose Studio stamps - this one is Emily Walking
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Cool Summer by Carta Bella
except for the ribbon stripe and the bow which is Craftwork Cards Tutti Fruiti
Bow die from Little Inkers
And those squitty little buttons which were a nightmare to nab out of my button tub
without tipping the whole lot out are, I think, Hero Arts

And I have a very proud husband at the moment - this is the first of his attempt at potato growing

To be honest, we have no idea what variety they are - it was just from a spud in the box that had sprouted!  But he is pleased, and I am pleased that he's pleased, if you follow.  I just hope they cook up ok.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

This is gorgeous Squirrel. I love the image, she's adorable and the papers and colours are fab.
It's so satisfying growing your own fruit and veg. I have tomatoes in the greenhouse and I get very excited when they start to turn red....it doesn't take much!! lol

Lovely card honey. Well done on the spud growing too. We grow our own and it's lovely to pop down the garden and dig up a few treasures to cook for tea!
Have a lovely weekend.
