GDT Week 2 Its Buttons & Bows at Crafty Catz

Good morning all,
I hope you are all well.  My little man has had a virus and a temperature of between 38.6 and 40 degrees all week.  We have been to docs & A&E and this is the 7th night we have hardly slept a wink.  I am not the best sleeper anyway, but no sleep is turning me into a grumpy old woman not to mention the fact i have pulled a muscle in my back so hubby and little man are keeping well out my way today! lol
Anyway, the reason i'm here is because there is a new fabby challenge over at Crafty Catz and i am still GDT so i have a little card to show you too.
The theme this week is: Buttons & Bows (at least one of each). Easy right?
The sponsor is Mulberry Crafts and the winner will receive this fab bag of crafting goodies.
For my card, i used a Sassy Studio Designs image called Elizabeth Bennett.  I love her and i teamed her up with this beautiful 'freebie' sentiment from the fabulous Mummylade.  Thank you so much :D

Challenges i would like to enter:

Simply Create Linky Party #17
Crafting When We Can challenge #35 Favourite Things ( This is my favourite female image and sentiment).
 Raise The Bar Challenge #126 1/1-1 (one image, one ribbon & one button).
Tuesday Throwdown #129 Shiny and New (use new stuff!) (I used new ribbon & new colours i just added to my Copic range).
It would be great if you joined in with the fun this week and if you take a peek over at Crafty Catz you won't be disappointed with the beautiful inspiration from the talented DT.
Thank you for visiting me today. 
Hugs, Jill x
