The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge # 5

Morning folks....I'm having a lazy feet up relaxing kind of a day and call me a slob if you dare but I am intending lounging around in my dressy gown snuggled up on the sofa with a cuppa and the Sunday crosswords all day but before I's time to share my card for this month's colour challenge over at The Ribbon Girl of my favourite colour combos.....


from The Ribbon Girl...this luscious
May Arts Silky Crush...Pale Pink Ribbon
and Pink Dewdrops

Hero Arts: Dots and Flowers inked with Versamark and heat embossed with White Fine Detail Powder and then inked with Distress Inks....Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy
Hero Arts: Dogwood inked with Frayed Burlap
Sentiment: Hero Arts....Thinking of You

the challenge will run until Saturday 5th March so to be in with a chance of winning this delicious bundle of ribbons from The Ribbon Girl.....
and a £10 voucher to spend in the Lily Of the Valley online store
you need to get your Cream Pink and Brown Thinking Cap on and get crafting.....
and for some fabulous inspiration pop over and check out the gorgeous cards from my team mates

And thanks to Mr Blabbermouth my secret is out....I was going to wait a while and break the news gently to you all....yes I have been very very naughty and the brand new gorgeous Hero Arts have landed in the cubbyhole....I really did try to resist tempation but my level of willpower is very fact I lasted the whole of 5 minutes...shocking isn't it.   I had a real fun day yesterday at The Papeterie...thanks to all the lovely ladies who came along to keep me company...will share pics later in the the meantime The Furry Boy will be back tomorrow to announce the winner of his give-away...closes at midnight tonight if you haven't already entered and I suspect he has his Moaning Minnie Hat batten down the hatches.

  5. Gorgeous card Kath, love the colours you've used. Love what you've done with that gorgeous stamp.

    Talking of stamps I have to admit to ordering some of the new stamps last night. Been looking at them for a days, trying to be good but I deserve a treat - I think! Besides probably not be able to get them at the SECC anyway.

  16. This is beautiful. Love dogwoods, have had a few in my yard thru the years, but they never do very well. Our weather is just to hot for them. Darn it, cause I really do love them. Is this a new stamp? Will definitely have to see if I can find it. I know you must be getting hot flashes as it gets so close to your date with Sir Tim. Hope you have a wonderful time. Can't wait to hear all about it. I think Buddy is a little jealous, he has been singing the blues lately. He will miss you.

  17. What a beautiful card. I just love how you have created it and that ribbon is divine x

  18. I called to say HI, and the cards are wonderful, Ribbon girls are up there as well. Lovies xxx

Thanks for taking the time to visit me in the cubbyhole...I love to hear from you.
