Take Your Pick 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 had a busy weekend sorting out my little crafty haven - my DH bought me some new drawers and a corner table from Ikea so most of Saturday was taken up putting the furniture together.

I finished putting together the drawers on Sunday and then had the mega job of sorting through my stash!!!! I did have the intention of having a clearout as I went but just couldn't bring myself to getting rid of much :o)

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

and this week we have our new fabulous theme of 


(see the main challenge blog for the full details)

Here's what I came up:

I chose warm colours, fancy fold (centre step card) and buttons.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is
