The Craft's Meow Sketch, The Play Date Cafe, Shopping Our Stash challenge

Oh I so do like purples...missed them recently with  most blog challenges after autumn and Halloween anyway I'm loving the colours at The Play Date Cafe #157 challenge and I've used them with the sketch from The Craft's Meow Sketch for November.  I also love the  piece of lace I found this week at the craft shop and of course I just had to have it which also fits with the challenge at Shopping Our Stash #76 -

Shopping Our Stash Challenge 76: Best Deal Ever or I had to buy it, it was on SALE!. 

My lace wasn't on SALE - but it was so gorgeous I couldn't resist. Now I must be having a great week because I also got a collection of buttons. 

I decided to go to the Salvos to see if I could scrounge some old interesting buttons...nope...only on garments and that wasn't the idea to get cheap buttons..but I was chatting to a lovely lady volunteer and she asked what I wanted them to cut a long story short she said she'd look into her button box at home if I'd come I did, on Friday - and I was amazed to find lots of wonderful buttons...thank you soooo much Diane they're just perfect... Thanks for taking a peek.
