Good afternoon everyone, I hope you’re enjoying the weekend
Time is whizzing by and I can’t believe that we’re into December now
Jess is working Christmas and New Year so won’t be coming home, our first Christmas without her so it will be strange and a bit sad. I’m sure she’ll be more than happy staying with her beloved horses, they get to finish at lunchtime and all make a meal together to celebrate so she’ll be just fine and have a great time I’m sure
We went to visit her last weekend and took her presents, Joe dragged himself away from his friends and came with us. I managed to get a rare picture of them and we spent some lovely time together…
It’s the final challenge of the year at The Ribbon Girl and it's a huge one; a Christmas themed challenge with ideas and inspiration galore from the whole Design Team
We would like to see all your Christmas projects, it can be a card, fabric, paper craft or knitted projects etc as long as it’s festive …and it's as easy as that!
Because it’s the last challenge of 2013 there are some great prizes to be won prizes including a £10 voucher from LOTV, £10 voucher from Ribbon Girl and a few special products from the Ribbon Girl online store
I made a little gift box, it’s from an IPod so is lovely and sturdy, and it was plain black so a good base colour for these lovely Lili of the Valley Classic Christmas papers
Apart from the Lili of the Valley Grungy Christmas message everything else I used is from The Ribbon Girl
The flowers were white, I coloured them with distress stain to match the papers
I put some pearls on the bottom to make little ‘feet’
Here’s a list of all my supplies;
Rusty jingle bells 18mm and 13mm
Hope you like it! There was so much fabulous work from the design team that Mary will be showcasing it all week on the blog and Facebook so do make sure you keep checking back as you will be amazed at some of the projects!
Finally, a question …
I know us crafters can be bit precious with our stash! I threw this scrap of lace away today and then promptly fished it back out of the bin thinking maybe I can use it on a little tag!
…is that really taking things a bit too far, it’s about 4cm long?
Shall I just grit my teeth, be brave and throw it away!!!
Have a lovely Sunday evening everyone, it’s Keith's birthday today so we’re going out tonight to eat and drink far too much!
