Another giveaway …and Bows or Dies (or both!)




Evening all, it’s a week since I posted yet again, my good intentions are not really going to plan so far in 2014!

I’ve had a hectic week, more about that when I have some time but for now I have a new challenge at Papertake Weekly and there’s another giveaway at the Ribbon Girl

For the last giveaway before our regular challenges begin next Sunday there is one each of the new vintage style bronze frames, 3 charms, 10mm ivory flatback pearl braid, 10mm ivory flatback pearl flower string, and pink satin ribbon

Onto the Papertake challenge and our theme this week is…

Bow Dies

All we want you to do is to add a bow and use a die

You can do one, or the other, or both  …it’s up to you!

This was an easy one for me, I love bows and I love dies so of course I put both on …


PTW 42 - Bows and dies



I used 2 scrummy ribbons from the Ribbon Girl; red silky crush and 16mm aqua open weave

I can’t resist adding a bit of ribbon even when it’s not a requirement, I adore it!


Here’s everything else I used;

Lili of the Valley art pad from Party And Cake

This image is called Rosie With Cake and is available as a stamp too

Simply Sophisticated sentiment

K & Co papers

EK Success corner punch

LaLa Land heart banner die

Stickles glitter glue
