SFYTT- Rain or Shine

I had to channel Randee for this one; she always makes such awesome cards with the My Favorite Things images. I finally got a few MFT stamp sets and when I saw the SFYTT tonight I knew that this was the image I was going to use.

I had such a fun day today. I went to this HUGE 100 family garage sale. It was in a large warehouse, and my favorite purchase was a giant jar of vintage buttons. The woman told me some were from the 60s. I got the jar for $5 and then I spied another one that I got for $3. Anyway, when I got back to my mom's house and showed her my treasures she knew I was dying to start sorting them and so she went and got some old muffin tins. Then she got some baby jar lids for my son to sort because he wanted to play with "buttons" too. Just shows you that mothers never stop mothering :)

So that was a long story to indicate that the button on this card is a vintage mother or pearl. The bling I started with just didn't look right. I am so please with my first MFT card!

so jealous of that big garage sale! I can't wait for the season to start. Awesome find on the buttons- that is on my list of things to get as well!

Love your card. I have that patterned paper and don't know what to do with it. I really like how you used it here!
