some news, some candy and a card...

Good morning everyone and has your weather improved any? I'm officially fed up with the British summer and it seems ages and ages since our holiday, I'm in need of another summer holiday I think somewhere warm and sunny with a pool and fantastic views...I have loads to tell you today so wont waffle on to much...firstly I was asked by the fabulous Sarah at the Pretty Little Ribbon shop to join her DT...well I had to think for all of two nano seconds...me and ribbons...never lol...she has some fantastically lush ribbons and brilliant prices...the rest of our team are







Sarah is starting off her team with a lush giveaway for you all so hop on over the the Pretty Little Ribbons blog to join in...all you have to do to win is become a follower, leave a comment to say hello and use the candy picture to link the giveaway on your blog and that's all...the candy finishes on the 2nd August and the winner will be announced on the 3rd August so hop on over and join in to stand a chance of winning some pink lovelies


I thought to celebrate my new DT spot I would use some lush ribbons on my card for today...this gorgeous little Tickled Pink image is a digi, I didn't know Tickled pink did digis did you, I bought her and a few others ages ago and forgot all about them (I know shocking) shes called Lil Lolita Willow and I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers
from the Prima 6x6 paper pad Botanicals from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Nikki also has Tickled Pink stamps if you prefer rubber, I love the colours in this pad and I think cutting around the frames gives the perfect finish to the edges...I finished with a sentiment cut from the same pad, lush satin ribbons, Prima flowers and some punched glitter dragonflies...the sketch is from Sketch N Stash challenge and I'm also entering this for the Deep Ocean ribbons challenge and Lollipop crafts anything goes challenge too...I'm off to have a good play with my new toy today and catch up with some commenting...whatever your up too don't forget to pop on over to The Pretty Little Ribbon blog to join in with the candy
