A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 14 - Three different ribbons

Thank you to everyone who entered a card into our challenge last week over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar". It has been so lovely to visit your blogs and see all your wonderful creations.

We also welcome Jacqui who is joining our team this week as a Guest Designer.

This week we would love to see your creations using 3 different ribbons.

We have a great sparkly prize this week (see below) which has been very kindly donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. Silly Monkey Crafts now have Stickles in stock in lots of fabulous colours. Their Bank holiday sale continues and they currently have 10% off all stock ..... but hurry as it ends today, Tuesday 26th August.

For my card this week I have used High Hopes Henry the Great with all his cute little bunnies. I looped three different ribbons to add to my bloom and finish with a button.

Thank you to dear Sanne for passing this wonderful award to me and making my day! If you haven't visited Sanne before pop over to her blog as she is a very talented 8 year old.

We're off to visit my Nan, Grandad and Aunt today for the last time before they emigrate to Portugal in a couple of weeks time. I know there is going to be lots of tears but look forward to spending quality time with them in the future when we go and visit for holidays. I will be featured in the Reader Stories of Cardmaking and Papercraft Issue 58 which is due out on 30th September with my story about this.

Hugs,
