Now let’s see what the team have made for us for this weeks challenge!

Anjie - I love buttons, I have jars and jars of them, I must have thousands of them! The cute image on my card is from the digi store and is called Piper Playing. She is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. I have used paper and a sentiment from the Bonbon Belles CD, both of which fit perfectly with this theme. I have changed the colour in the MCS Elite program. I have then used a button embossing folder and finally added some real buttons. If you look closely you can see I have used a tiny button on  Pipers braces!
Scatty Jan I love buttons, one of my favourite embellishments. I have used 3 on my project the 2 little dotty ones on the shelf and the pink bee button under the shelf, how cute is that! I have used the lovely digi image Camille Mum to be coloured with Graph'It markers. The papers are from the Pretty Sweet collection, and the little birdy at the window and the bears are from the Winston collection.
Crafting Vicky Like Scatty Jan, I just think buttons are just the greatest embellishment ever!  So when I saw that this was the challenge I was really really happy :)  I decided to go with humor for this challenge and used a great image called Cleaning Lady as well as the paper from the great Work and Play collection 6.  Adn I'm saying it's humorous because, well don't know about you but I really really HATE doing the housework...   So hope you enjoy my card... it's rare to find vacuum paper :)  So that's a really special set!!!
Wendy - I raided my button box for this weeks challenge, was really happy when I found the butterfly button and just HAD to use it. I've used Amelia Contemplating, she's available on her own digitally or as part of the Pretty Sweet CD. The papers are from the same collection  and mounted onto black card. 
Julie  - For my card I have used the wonderful Baby Boom Bundle, its only £2.99 and is available in the Digi Store HERE. The baby images are so cute and there are buttons on the baby's outfit so it was ideal for me to use for this challenge as I didn't have any spare buttons in my craft room 
Yvonne - Hi guys! Really enjoyed this weeks challenge, I used 'Maddie Twirling Curls' she is coloured with my Graph'It Markers, you can see the range here.  The papers I used are from the 'Nikky Digi Bundle'. The buttons are from the new 'Winston' collection. 
Patty I just think buttons are just the cute embellishment ever!  I decided to make a cute Birthday card for my kid friend and I just found this image boy from  Work and Play collection 3.  all papers are from the same collection the sentiment is from Stamp Doodles Set  and red button with white and black twine. what do you think?  Isn't cute or not??
