Like Father, Like Son!

Hello Readers,

This is my debut as design team member at The Male Room. This challenge is about using up our stash. In this case, our challenge is to use up those...
Buttons! 
Please note the plural for the challenge. 
Here is my card for today, Enjoy!
This reminds me of my father's pajamas. I can envision a man
carrying his Sunday crossword to the table and then the ink pen explodes before he can solve a single clue.



Respectfully wearing his undershirt.
I chose to add a bit of dimension by not creasing the collar.
These buttons were from my husband's grandmother.
When she passed I inherited her craft supplies.
Talk about using up the stash of stuff.
Open up the card and you will find a bit of mess.
and the sentiment in red.
Detail of the shirt partially opened.
I do hope you can join us at The Male Room. It is always good to use up some of our stuff. I think we can all attest that we have enough supplies for a small town. So break out those buttons and use them up! 

Thank you so much for joining me yet again at TheGrandStampede. I do hope you enjoyed your visit and please pop back in from time to time to see what is new! Until then take care and happy stamping!

All the best,
Shawna
