Tug Of War…



Morning crafters, what are you up to this weekend? Keith is going out on his bike today so my Mum is coming over and we are going to get the the garden tidied. It’s full of colour at the moment and all the spring bulbs are in flower and they look so cheerful. My lovely friend Gretha brought me some bulbs over from Holland when she visited, they are the best in the world and the flowers have been spectacular

It's time for another challenge at The Ribbon Girl and this week it is our 'Lovely Lili' LOTV challenge. It's very easy this week as it is 'anything goes' There are some great prizes up for grabs and as always some fabulous inspiration from the design team


03 April - Anything Goes x


I used one of the new Annabel images (this one is called Tug Of War) and also one of their useful circular sentiments. The dots around the image are from the grunge elements set

The gathered tulle is a new product from the Ribbon Girl, Mary and Andrea have added some scrummy new things to the website lately so do go and have a look

Here’s all the other gorgeousness I used from them; Melissa Frances organza pink pouf ribbon, jute mesh ribbon, aster daisy, lily, pretty blossom, beaded berries, pearl button mixture, button twine

The papers are Prima and the lattice in the background is a Spellbinders die



Hope you like it, thanks so much for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments. I appreciate you visiting and I’ll put some candy up next week as a little thank you

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone x
