I’m back with a Ribbon Girl challenge…



Hello lovely crafty friends!

I keep saying I’m back and then it never quite happens lol. I took a break from blogging and it’s been really hard to get back into it, when I come on the computer I have a limited amount of time (like everyone) and that time has been taken up by Pinterest lately – I love it!

But, I’ve missed seeing all your lovely work and hearing your news so I’m going to really make an effort to come back to the blogs and catch up with everyone. My lovely friends Mary and Andrea at the Ribbon Girl kindly welcomed me back to the team so I’m going to enjoy using some gorgeousness from their store and showing you the cards I make

I’ll share my news later, today I have a card for the new Ribbon Girl challenge…

It’s an 'Any Image Challenge' on the blog and this week our theme is 'A SHAPED CARD OR ANYTHING GOES' 

As always there is some lovely inspiration from the clever girls on the team to get you started

There are prizes up for grabs of a stamp of your choice from Lili of the Valley and a £10 voucher to spend in The Ribbon Girl online store



I like easel cards, especially circles and I make them a lot – something a bit different I think, although some people are a bit confused when they take them out of the envelope how to stand them up!

This is for some friends of ours and it will be going in the post to them tomorrow…


May Shaped


I used some lovely K&Co papers and the little house stamp is a JOFY stamp, I love her whimsical images and have quite a few of them

The sentiment was done on the computer and this is Andrea’s handwriting turned into a font by Darcy Baldwin – how fab is that! You can download it for free, it’s very aptly named Geordie Girl!

The dies are; Lil’ Inkers & Marianne circles, Sue Wilson pierced banner and Memory Box clouds

All the delicious embellishments are of course from the Ribbon Girl

Raspberry delight mixed dahlias

‘Anne’ antique white lace

Kort and Godt rolled roses

Ivory pearl bead string

Natural hemp twine



I hope you like my card, if anyone is still visiting my poor abandoned blog do let me know you’re there and I’d love to hear what you think

I will be catching up on all your blogs next week…  meanwhile enjoy your Sunday
