I'm back ... and I have news

I had a lovely message last week from Nikky at Polkadoodles inviting me to join her Design Team. Well of course I thought about it for all of 10 seconds before replying with a big fat "yes!" and really that is why I have resurrected my blog which has been quite neglected for the last couple of years. I've been using Facebook and Instagram to share the cards that I make and I will be continuing to use my other social media accounts. You can find me on Facebook and Instagram

So, onto sharing my first challenge card for Polkadoodles

For this 'Spring Flowers' card I chose to use this gorgeous little Winnie image (precoloured) and papers from the 'Fruit Punch' download kit at Polkadoodles.
I teamed the pretty papers and image with satin ribbon, organza rose trim, paper flower, Stickles glitter and flower shaped decorative pins all from the Ribbon Girl

It would be lovely if you could join us over at the challenge blog

For a Special Friend ...

I made a pretty card for a special friend who had her birthday this week.

Everything I used is from The Ribbon Girl

 I made the greeting banner on my computer

 I cut a window from the lid of my card box, add a sheet of acetate and then covered the box to coordinate with the card. It looked great and I'll be doing this again!

 We used my card for a Facebook campaign for the Ribbon Girl
