As i said in my previous post things have been super hectic so not much time for crafting :-(

Recipe**
  • dl pink card blank
  • red card stock
  • pink gross grain
  • wooden backed stamp sentiment( unable to remember brans sorry)
  • martha stewart embossing border punch

Challenges**

  1. Wild orchid ~ anything goes
  2. Cupcake ~ anything but squares
  3. Paperplay ~ lets get sentimental
  4. DYSU ~ anything goes
  5. Pear tree ~ ribbon

I know it really is super plain, but the text is soooooo lovely it speaks for itself lol

Photobucket

here is why im not posting and crafttin much at the mo lol

We have an ex council house so the whole house including ceilings has chipwood on it, now anyone familiar with this stuff will know how awful it is to remove (arghhhh)
We are completely ditching everything and putting in new skirting/archatrave etc etc.
This is where the chimney breast used to be lol and there where water and gas pipes in there too what hubby has re routed or taken away,

We are far from finished but it will be stunning when done, ill keep you posted but just wanted to show you why ive not crafted much this past week or two xxx

The ribbon was distressed as well, i pulled at it to make it look shabby on the ends,

  4. My time to craft ~ going round in circles

I have a bit of a thing going at the moment where i am trying to use up lots of ribbon,(yes so i can buy more) you know the little bits that get left over, i have millions of scraps and i REFUSE to throw them away lol,
Ive made quite alot of different styled ribbon themed cards recently som i have yet to share but i tell you, its a fab way of using scraps. and quick and simple too.
~
Here is one i made last night,
I made a flower with some pink and blue grossgrain ribbon, and then at the top right got my stapler out!
