The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge #16

Morning folks...I am always jumping up and down with excitement when my DT parcel arrives from The Ribbon Girl and this month was no exception...lots of yummy products for the February Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge..the colours this month were chosen by my lovely teamie ANDREA and what a stroke of luck...one of my favourite colour combos...


I decided to give this cute little Santa box I bought in New York last year a bit of a make-over...you may have noticed that I am on a mission at the moment to transform anything that doesn't move into a piece of Altered Art...so I waved the magic wand and hey presto...a Mini Hat Box storage solution....perfect for keeping all those gorgeous button and charm goodies from The Ribbon Girl...



the challenge will run until 9pm on Saturday 3rd March and there are fabulous prizes up for grabs...
from our chums at Lili Of The Valley
to spend in their online shop and with their new stamps being released tomorrow....I'm sure you will have great fun spending your voucher
and from The Ribbon Girl
this bumper bundle of yumminess...
I'm hopping over to check out the gorgeous creations from my lovely teamies and our guest designer for February the lovely JANE and WOOHOO it's time to get the suitcase packed ready for my flight tonight to Birmingham...I'm so looking forward to some time off - 2 days of crafty fun at Stitches with my lovely chums Debbi...Charlotte and Rachel...popping by to say hello to Tim and Mario with some workshops thrown in...ogling all the new goodies that will be popping into crafty shops in the coming months and meeting up with lots of crafty buddies. But I'm not leaving you without your cubbyhole fix...I'll be sharing the samples I made for the Fiskars stand on Monday and Tuesday and talking of Fiskars...the cubbyhole crew have pulled out all the stops...the kits for the NEC Workshops in March are almost done...just the ribbon and bling to add...hoop-de-doo another job ticked off the crafty list.
See you all soon
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add....I will post a HOW-TO for the Mini Hat Box next week

Oh brilliant - a hat box for Barbie when she goes travelling. I suppose it would have to be one of those new fangled dolls though - Monster High?? Anyhow I think buttons are a much better idea & love the tulle & trimmings. Hope you're enjoying/have enjoyed Stitches by the time you read this.
