It is the start of another Challenge over on our Ribbon Challenge blog - wow those two weeks have flown by.
Thank you to everyone that entered the last challenge, we had some super Traditional projects and cards. This NEW Challenge is a sketch designed by Tessa and Anke. Oooooooh something to take me out of my comfort zone, a SKETCH.....................yikes! So I had a think and and came up with a plan. Do you remember I went back to school last week..........well I wanted to make a Thank you card for the teacher. Everyone together................ ahhhh!
So here is Tessa and Anke's sketch
I do not think I did too badly for my first ever sketch!! For the centre section I wove three colours of the twill ribbon here on top of a small piece of iron-on vilene and then ironed it in place. The rose is made from seam binding ribbon and can be found here, and the instructions for the rose are here. Some of you may have spotted the Thank you ribbon and yes it is NEW!
Gorgeous NEW Thank you ribbons are here!
If you get a spare moment (I know everyone is soooooo busy) check out the DT girls creations, boy do we have a fab Design Team - thanks girls.
This is our last collection of creations from our Top 5 Christmas ribbon challenge and they are from Karen.
Ooops sorry Karen a little to much light in the photo, a super card from black and silver with a matching card. I love the way you have matched them up Karen.
Oooh I like candles, Karen was very thoughtful and put a candle safe tag with this card - remove ribbon before lighting and never leave unattended. A beautiful prezzie Karen.
Nadolig Llawen is Welsh for Forever Friends - how super Karen, great card.
I think is a super idea Karen - a Jar of cinnamon sugar to sprinkle over mince pies. Oh dear how did this jar find it's way into the car, I seem to have it in France!!! Yummmy Karen especially since I have just baked a fresh batch of mince pies.
What am I like - this also has found it's way to France.........................Karen I think this is one of the coolest ideas this Christmas. A Ho-ho-ho place mat for santa's cookies and milk. This will be in use this Saturday, thanks Karen
That is all of our challenge goodies for this year, thank you to everyone that have taken part, not just in the challenge but all the others this year. Super creations and a wonderful use of ribbon - inspiration to us all.
We are off out to see if there are any Christmas trees left in France, we brought the little one with us that I used for the Advent photos, but to be honest it is very small and looks a little bit lost. Tony made sure that the tree was totally covered in the back of the car, he didin't want other ferry passengers to comment "What no Christmas Trees in France?" Which is something Tony would say!!!
Have a wicked day.
