Ribbon Girl challenge, and some old favourites are back…




Hello crafters, thanks for stopping by

I had a lovely few days last week staying with my pals Mary and Andrea from the Ribbon Girl


…this is us just after we’d tucked into fish and chips at the coast - and it was FREEZING!

We had a few trips out and of course spent some time crafting. Mary has been making these smashing shaped cards so we all had a go at one - I’m not sure what you’d call it but they are ever so easy and fold flat to go into an envelope

I made this for my DT challenge card, it’s an ‘ANY IMAGE’ challenge so anything goes as long as you include an image!

I can’t take credit for the lovely colouring on this image, it was from a card at Lili of the Valley. The cards were handled quite a lot in the shop and are packed and unpacked for the shows so inevitibly some of them fall apart eventually. I can’t bear to throw them away when someone has spent a long time colouring them so this is one I saved to re-use as I love this little Rosie with her cake!

It’s one my LOTV favourites and great news because it is amongst the cute designs that are back. There are quite a few of the retired stamps being brought out this month as a limited run so have a peek - there some old favourites that you might have missed first time around!

The papers are First Edition Bella Rose and the tag is made using Set 8 happy circular sentiments (LOTV)

Finally of course there is lots of scrumptiousness from the Ribbon Girl shop; tulle, stardust stickles, bead string, 8mm Rebecca antique lace, scarlet berry 15mm satin ribbon, 15mm red roses, 11mm flatback pearls



Full details for the challenge are on the Ribbon Girl blog as well as some inspiration from the team. There are great prizes for 3 lucky winners which will be announced on the Ribbon Girl blog after 9pm on Saturday 5th March

First prize:  £10 voucher for LOTV

Second prize:  £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl

Third prize:  Mystery prize from Marianne Designs




It’s a gorgeous day here in Leeds today, I’ve got some washing out for the first time this year and Manny is sunbathing in the conservatory! Have a good day whatever you are doing
