Good morning crafty folk, it’s a beautiful day here today and I hope you are all enjoying the weekend
Thank you for all your lovely comments and emails about Manny, he seems to be fine now so hopefully nothing more sinister than a bad landing when he’s jumped off the sofa or the bed. That little dog makes me so happy and I can’t bear to think of him hurting, his legs don’t seem to stop him enjoying his life so hopefully he’ll be with us for a long time yet!
Time for the April ‘Use Any Image’ challenge at the Ribbon Girl and you can make anything you like as long as you feature an image on your work – easy!!
All the details for entering are on the Ribbon Girl blog and the challenge runs for two weeks. There is as always some beautiful inspiration from the Design team so do go and have a peek if you need a few ideas
Mary has started selling designer papers and they are the most beautiful I’ve seen. Some of the brands are quite difficult to get hold of in the UK so check the full range out here and I know you will love them
I used a Maja Design collection for my card called Coffee in the Arbour…
I have to admit it was quite hard to cut into these gorgeous papers, I already have a couple of Maja Design pads that I’ve had for a while and can’t bring myself to use (it’s mad, why??) but I bit the bullet and loved the result
There are some images and tags also in the pad so everything you need to make a beautiful card and they go perfectly with the pretty Ribbon Girl products… Maja designs 6x6 'coffee in the arbour' papers, top stitching thread, pale pink bead string, tulle, flat back pearls, seam binding, 8mm Rebecca ivory vintage style fine scallop lace, ivory aster, raspberry delights mixed dahlia, Kort & Godt rolled roses, butterfly charm, button twine, rose organza ribbon
Hope you like my card today, I love to read your comments so do let me know what you think
Right, time for me to tidy the garden a bit I think, I like to feel as if I’ve been productive when it’s sunny! Enjoy your Sunday everyone
