Moving Along With some Pretty Little Ribbons

Good Morning blog lovers, hope it's not too frosty in your part of the world, it hasn't been here cos the salt air stops us having much frost but my Mum tells me she has had a proper white welcome these last couple of mornings!

Thursday seems to come around faster than ever just lately, I reckon it must be my age! LOL 
I've been quite poorly for the last few days and I want to thank everyone for all the get well wishes you have all been leaving me, I can't believe how kind everyone has been. Sniff sniff. Feeling loads better now so business as usual and time for a new challenge at

and this week my lovely friend Debs is hosting and she wants to see some 
Ribbons & Bows
 Here is my contribution
I've kept my card pretty simple this week as I didn't want to cover up too much of these gorgeous Bo Bunny papers, I was tempted to just stick a piece of the lush paper on the front of a card blank, it's so so gorgeous! The cute image as you will recognise is LOTV, my collection of these is growing but I never find enough time to play with them, this is one of my favourite of this years Christmas release. The flower I have had forever from Prima, I have a problem with using the stuff I buy, I think I prefer to look at it and stroke it LOL 
The pearls and ribbons are from my stash. Thanks to my lovely friend Jill for the fab tip - I don't buy pearls in every colour anymore - I colour them with my copics now.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and check out the fabulous inspiration from the DT The girls have done a brilliant job for you this week! It's a super little challenge and growing stronger and stronger each week with some fabulous prizes up for grabs.

This week we have a new sponsor

They are donating this super collection to the winner

I hope you all find time to join in and thank you all for visiting this morning
Love 'n' Hugs

WOW!! I'm just sat here looking at your card and sighing wistfully !!! I'ts SO gorgeous!! Your colouring is awesome !! Love how you've picked out the colours in the papers. And Wow those papers - you are quite right not to cover too much up. Love the flower and ribbon. One stunning card! All the DT cards are so gorgeous this week.
Made me laugh when you said about just sticking the paper on a card blank. My daughter said that to me when she saw one of the Basic Grey Jovial papers!!! So I made her a card with it and I've tried not to cover too much of it!! LOL
Glad you are feeling much better
Take care
Big Hugs!
