Buttons, Bows and Bling at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and that your week has got off to a good start.
I'm pleased to say that our transfer over to Sky for our internet seems to be going smoothly - unlike the issues we had with our previous supplier!!!
As well as the internet issues I had last week I also had problems with my WiFi printer and then my e-mail started playing up too!!!
They say that things come in three's don't they - hopefully though they also seemed to be rectified.

Anyway today I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and this week we have a fabulous theme


At a recent Summer School Fayre I had a request to make a couple of cards and here's one of them:

I haven't made an easel card in ages and I really enjoyed putting this together.

Card Ingredients:
Image: LOTV Pre-Coloured Art Pad 23 'James and Jenny Bear'
Design Papers: LOTV 'Perfect Pair'
Spellbinders: Labels 18, Floral Ovals, Plain and Scalloped Circles
Martha Stewart:: Scrolled Lace Border Punch
Flowers and Leaves: Memory Box Norland Flower
Buttons from stash 

Our wonderful sponsor this week is our very own Mary and Andrea from 
Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the details of the fabulous prize on offer and to see the gorgeous inspiration from my DT and GDT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
LOTV - Take Two
Ooh La La Creations - Easel Card

Thanks for popping by to see me today - let me know you've been so I can come and see you too :o)

Before I go I just wondered if anyone could recommend a good A3 WiFi colour printer - maximum budget £200 and not too costly to run :o)
Looking forward to some advice.

Have a fabulous day.
