Multi tasking

The Saturday Stamper challenge was so multi faceted it should have been hard, and I think I might have groaned when I read it. But after finding this image on Cora's blog, it all came together quite quickly. So, I had to include friends, buttons, button wisdom, diamonds, and chalk inks.


I cheated on the buttons as there are some on the girl's coat. The diamonds are stamped on very subtly. I decided to name the dog Buttons, and then base my saying around him. It seemed appropriate as they are pulling thread.
