It's been another day of surprises for me, opening up all these wonderful challenge goodies. No sweeties today - boo hoo!!!
Carol V has sent in this delightful card, using our contemporary range of valentine ribbons. It looks as if Carol has stuck the ribbons onto card in layers then cut the whole shape out. The little hearts are done in the same way - I think!
This is the inside of Carol's card, it is just as amazing as the front. Carol thought she was too late for the Challenge, we had closed it, but she leaves great comments, so we bent the rules slightly!
WOW! I have never had one of these before. I wasn't sure that it was our ribbon! But according to Carmens blog it is (http://whoopidooings.blogspot.com) as well as quite a bit of glue. It's great and can be worn as a brooch, don't worry Carmen about not making cards I love different projects.
Carmen also sent this Christmas pudding "Duckie" he is made from paper napkins. This craft is very big in France, so "Duckie" is on his way over there next Monday, I will attach a ribbon lead to him. Can't have him getting lost.
Dorothy has been doing a bit of ribbon embroidery - my passion! Keep going Dorothy it is an amazing craft.
We had a strange man knocking on our door this morning - bearing gifts. Liz had sent her husband over with her challenge goodies - shame thought I had an early valentines card!
Oh Liz this card is very elegant and says it all.
No sweeties, but I received a book and a bear - much better for my figure!! Valentine the Bear has had a make over, Jumper removed and a new ribbon to make her a little more glam. A loving heart and body art has been added, cut from the ribbons - wicked. I love the book Liz and will take it home tonight to have a read, thank you.
This beautiful card was made by Lydia, isn't she gorgeous.
Lydia also made this fun tag card - isn't it great, look at the inside below.
There are still a few more to arrive, one of which is coming from Cyprus. Fingers crossed they arrive before Monday.
Thanks to everyone who joined in with the challenges, we do hope you get as much enjoyment out of them as we do.
