Ribbons and Pearls at Creative Inspirations

Good morning to You! Hope you're well and happy and ready for another day? I'm feeling good - got lots of crafting done yesterday as I was confined to the house - the builders were in sorting out a wall in the girls bedroom - so I had to stay around all day - which meant lots of crafting - and I did even manage to plant some runner beans and disinfect the greenhouse too!

This week's challenge at Creative Inspirations is Ribbons & Pearls!

Seeing it is the last challenge of the month we have 2 fantastic prizes to give away!

The first of our prizes is from our Monthly Sponsor J&C CREATIONS who are giving 1 Winner a £10 GIFT CERTIFICATE!


Our next prize is from our brand new sponsor SATURATED CANARY who are giving another Winner 

and that can't be bad!!!! So get those crafty fingers moving and get something made - if you can!!! I felt I was coming over all bossy there - lol!!!! Here's what I made:

I've coloured up the fabulous Krafty Kate that you can get from Saturated Canary - I'm a bit cross with myself because I asked for the image - went to file her - and found out I had already bought her before! What a nellie - obviously liked her though!!! Thats probably down to seeing her done so many times - thanks Karen xxxx

The image has been coloured with promarkers and cut using a spellbinders grand circle die. The distressing in the centre is tea dye DI. Paper is from my stash and the flowers are WOC. The sentiment is an everyday grungy sentiment from LOTV.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

OSAATonestitchatatimechallenge: Use a digi
SCsaturatedcanarychallenge: AG
Deep Ocean CBdeepoceanchallengeblog: Fave colour combo - blue and brown.

Have a fabby Wednesday - we're finishing off our scarecrow at Rainbows tonight - its going to be a mass plaiting session and were going to cut some flowers from felt using the big shot. Some of these will go in rapunzels hair and some will go on the board thats going to dangle from the tower with our entry name on it - I'll take a picture on Friday when I put the scarecrow in place and put it in Saturday mornings post.

Do have a great day and thanks for dropping by!

Hugs rachel xx
