Ribbon Girl Guest Designer

Happy Sunday! :) I hope by the time this post goes live I will be lounging around in my pj's somewhere sipping some tea and enjoying a crunch or two on some toast or biscuits. I'm in desperate need of a lazy weekend. Only 5 more days at work and then I'm off for a week, so I best not complain.

So you might be wondering what you're stopping by my blog for on a Sunday of all days! Well let me tell ya.. I was approached by the ever so lovely Mary and Andrea from The Ribbon Girl about being a Guest Designer for them this week. How could I say no?! I love their little shop, and always end up spending waaay more than planned. I can never wait for my parcel to arrive all wrapped up like a Christmas present! :)

So this week they've a new challenge, which is


I decided to colour up Butterflies and Pigtails from Simply Sassy, which I believe you can still purchase at Funky Kits. I just fancied stamping an image when I sat down to create this card and my little Simply Sassys were getting heavily neglected. 

I've used some papers from My Minds Eye and coloured my image with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match. :) The sentiment from Amy R has been stamped in Melon Mambo ink and die cut with an X-Cut die.

As for the embellishments, this is where all of the The Ribbon Girl goodness comes into it all. 

So I know you're itching to get over to The Ribbon Girl Challenge Blog and join in with us all. I know you've got some buttons somewhere! ;) There are two amazing prizes up for grabs too..

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
- Sweet Stampin' - Create a Scene
- Jellypark Challenges - Girly
- Really Reasonable Ribbon - Sparkle, bling and ribbon

Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your lazy Sunday! Lou Mac, out. xo
