Calling all UK Crafters!!

Please, please, please help me!  I am coming back to the UK on Thursday so I thought I would top up on some craft bits I need, however, as I haven't purchased stuff for many years in the UK I no longer know which is a good online shop to get things from.

I need:

Purplicious Buttons
11cm x 11cm envelopes with matching cards
Very strong double sided tape
Clear gems

I will be buying alot - so if anyone can tell me good websites, that delivers fast and has excellent prices, I would really really appreciate it. 

As a reward I shall send you some lovely sun from Dubai!

Thank you so much for your time and help!

This weeks challenge is:


It is that time of year for weddings so lets start spreading the love!!

Anyway, back to my creation....I got contacted from a lady in Holland who wanted to have a wedding card made for her to put money in for her friends wedding.  They were asking for donations to put towards a new bed so the lady asked me if I could somehow get a bed on the card.  Now, I don't do stamped images so I came up with the next best thing....putting a BED IN the card!!

Here it is:
