Colour Challenge - Red




Hey everyone, what you been up to? The weather has been a bit better and dare it say it …has actually felt a bit Spring like at last

I had a good day at the NEC and my hip was fine, whatever went wrong seems to have righted itself. I’m keeping my orthopaedic appointment in few weeks time because something wasn’t right and I think I still need to get it checked out

We didn’t win at the craft awards, we got to the top 3 in our categories but were pipped at the post by the create and craft heavy weights. I’m obviously biased but I think our stamps are the best and there isn’t another range to compare for variety or quality  …aah well, maybe next year!!




Time for a colour challenge at the Ribbon Girl challenge blog and this month’s is…



As always there are some prizes up for grabs and loads of gorgeous inspiration from the design team

I used the James with heart image from the new James and Jenny art pad which is out next Monday


February - Red


The sentiment is from the handwritten phrases set and the papers are also from the new release, this is the heartfelt pad

There’s a little tag tucked away that you can’t see on the picture, it was made with a doohickey ‘so wrapped’ die


I used (of course!) some fabby ribbon and lace from the Ribbon Girl;

Claire ivory embossed tulle

Teresa lace

American seam binding


The Ribbon Girl store is closed at the moment but will be open again soon so you can get all the gorgeous goodies



That’s it from me, I have a night with the girls now so a few glasses of wine, a lovely meal and lots of girlie chat… I hope you’re all having a lovely evening whatever you’re doing
