No patterned papers!






Time for another challenge over at CRAFTY RIBBONS and this time the theme was chosen by the lovely Cebelica and she has asked for
NO PATTERNED PAPERS.
I do love this type of challenge and it worked perfectly for me this time.
The prize this time is
A selection of ribbons (colours/contents may vary from photo)

So well worth entering don't you think?

I have used the gorgeous PINK GINGHAM ribbons for my projects this week which you can find HERE.



I had a commission for a lady whose sister had given birth to beautiful twin girls but sadly one was born sleeping and she wanted me to make a card for both the babies as the Mum was keeping a little memory box. So I made a card for Oonagh and a smaller flat version for baby Aoife, to slip inside the card.


These commissions are always hard as I like to treat the situation very delicately. The Mum of the babies is married to my cousin's son and the whole situation was very very sad.
Little Oonagh will hopefully be released from hospital when her weight picks up. Any prayers would be gratefully accepted.

Image - I used a Sugar Nellie vintage baby stamp
Papers - spotty embossed, marianne die, ms star punch, gold peel offs and pearls, flower soft
Ribbon - PINK GINGHAM
Medium - coloured with promarkers and chalks for the clouds

I would like to enter this into
The Sugar Bowl - anything goes
Eclectic Elllapu - anything goes
Make it Monday - linky party
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink - baby card (sorry its not LCI stamps)
Loves Rubberstamps - anything goes

Word Art Wednesday - anything uplifting (my sentiment)

I hope you get time to enter our challenge this fortnight.
Thanks for dropping by.
