A new Challenge over at Dream Valley

Good morning to you all crafty friends.
Today sees the start of a new Challenge over at Dream Valley. We are being sponsored by Freckled Fawn and the theme is buttons. They have over 300 Washi and Deco tapes - a fabulous embellishment for our crafty creations. Please pop over and have a look at the DT's wonderful work and if you join in the challenge, which I hope you will, some lucky crafter can win a $20 voucher.
Yesterday, we went to see our grand-daughter and I even had a hold of her. It was a wonderful feeling and she is doing so well to be able to be out her incubator for periods of time. I have a couple more photos for you at the end of my post.
 For this challenge I have used Tilda with Big Tulips. I love her.
I have coloured her with Distress Markers. I have been looking at the new Distress marker colours and I think I am going to have to buy them. Have any of you purchased them and are they fabulous.

I could not find a link for the Buttons but they are from the Gorjuss Girl collection. I got mine from the Range. All the other items I have used for this card are at the bottom of the post.
The ribbon and gems are from my stash.
The button in the middle of the white flower is also from The Range.
I have got such a busy day tomorrow. I think I may well be at work from 7am to 8pm as I have some make up stands, hair accessory stands and Beauty accessory stands to empty. I then have to go in Monday morning at 6am to put the stock back on some new fixtures as well as two new stands. I should be my day off but I dare say I will be there all day. Never mind - I will save the extra money from my wages for the NEC!!!
I will be sure to visit your blogs Monday evening. I will prop my eyes open with match sticks.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Great impressions - A Button and a Bow
Crafty Ribbons - Anything goes with ribbon
Chocolate, coffee and cards - Flowers
Sweet Pea Stampers - Purple Power
Happy Campers Challenge - Flowers

 Evie-Maie and some strange lady who calls herself grandma.
See you all soon
