Any Image Challenge…



Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by. I made a card this week for the Ribbon Girl challenge that is completely different for me. I needed an 80th Birthday card for a special lady and the style I usually make just didn’t cut it -  I took some inspiration from the fabulous Kathy because her cards are exquisite

It's a USE ANY IMAGE anything goes challenge and I was so carried away using all the gorgeous Ribbon Girl goodies that I just realised I didn’t actually use an image …ooops, sorry Mary and Andrea! 

(you are supposed to) …use an image, it can be any of your choosing and we hope to see all types of projects including cards, boxes, gift boxes, candles etc

This challenge will run for 2 weeks ending at 9pm on Saturday 29th November. All the details are on the Ribbon Girl blog as well as some gorgeous cards from the team – and, there will be 3 winners chosen at random from the entries




There’s quite a long list of supplies, here’s what I used from the Ribbon Girl; 25mm cream cotton lace, tulle, stickles, pink and ivory button twine, 3mm and 5mm flat back pearls, rhinestone self adhesive butterflies and dragonflies, teardrop ivory pearlised pins, ivory 10mm and 20mm open roses, tiny pale pink rosebuds

…and here’s everything else; LOTV/Raspberry Road Always & Forever papers, Noor border die, Spellbinders rose creations die, Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval dies, Memory Box foliage die

There are a few things I would do differently next time but all in all I’m pretty pleased with it and will definitely make another. Kathy uses lots of pearl flourishes so that’s something I need to get as they are a lovely finishing touch

I’m curious to know what you think so leave a comment if you have a minute, I love to read them

Enjoy your week crafters

  6. Hi Anne! How lovely that you came over to my little blog to say Hello. I expect we've spoken on the phone if, as I think, you're the LOTV shop Anne - and your work is really so beautiful!

    Do try out the ham recipe - I promise you the tenderness would be really hard to beat. As Ike emphasised, and it was already written in my own instructions too, you HAVE to use NON-diet coca cola.

    If you ever fancy playing we'd really love to see you in the Snippets Playground. It's a bit of anarchy at times (snigger) as the girlies are into all sorts of mischief but it's a fun place to join in with if you find yourself using up scraps (aka snippets). Just gonna add myself as a follower and then have a bit more of a browse back though your blog Anne!
