Hello all, I’m feeling better at last hooray and have finally seen the back of my awful cold. Great to see you all at the Lili of the Valley open day yesterday, I love to have a chat with my crafty blogging buddies!


I saw this on Pinterest… thought it might amuse you…




We’re packed and ready to go to Egypt tomorrow so this is a quick post to just share my Ribbon Girl colour challenge cards. The theme this month is ‘Pastels’ so a nice easy one

I love using pretty pastel colours, these 2 lovely images are in the new Lili of the Valley Christmas Cuties art pad

I made some more little cards, 4 x 4, they are very cute and so quick to make as you haven’t got much space to fill



September - Pastels 

Ribbon Girl pastels 2

 Ribbon Girl pastels 1


The papers are from the Pastel Dreams pad (my new favourite!) and sentiments from Christmas Wishes

I stamped around the edges of the images for a bit of interest with a dotty stamp from the Grunge Swirls set and then went over it with some stickles


All the lovely ribbons and embellishments are of course from the Ribbon Girl;

Silver jingle bells

Dew drops (top tip…  stick them on with Glossy Accents)

Glitter organza

Silver metallic twine (first time I’ve used this, I LOVE it…   so useful)




Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone, I’ll be sunning myself shortly (hopefully!) as it’s forecast 38 degrees for the next few days in Hurghada, a good book and a cocktail and that’s me happy! Lovely jubbly!!


I’ll see you in a couple of weeks, take care all x
