Ribbons and Bows and TL candy winner



Blogger update: Since I mentioned my Blogger problems earlier in the week, I have noticed others reporting the same. For me it has changed a little as the week progressed and Blogger now seems happy for me to comment on half a dozen or so blogs before he throws the robotic question at me. But once he does no way can I continue or bypass the question as previously and I have to go through the process on every blog, hence I am a bit slower getting round you all. On a brighter note (fingers very tightly crossed) the additional photo verification seems to have gone.

Good morning to you all, it's time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Mervi would like to see Ribbons and Bows. Our sponsors are Crafty Ribbons and Jiggery Makery.

My card this week is one of a collection I was asked to make for Create and Craft for one of their magazines featuring the Mariposa range from Couture Creations. The background is stenciled with acrylic paint and the leaves and Butterflies have been painted with the same pain but have a coat of varnish added to give them a sheen. And finally I found this lovely satin ribbon that matched the paint colours beautifully.

Tattered Lace candy winner: almost forgot but pleased to announce the lucky winner as drawn by Random Org., is........................

Please mail me with your details so I can post the goodies.

Have a lovely weekend one and all.

  7. OMG, this whole commenting thing is happening to you too????? I posted in all of my DT blogs because I just got back on line and couldn't figure out what I did wrong... and nobody could figure it out, I'm sort of glad to hear that it's not just me. It's really interfering with my blogging!! Do you get the stupid pop up window with the images (pick all the images with boats in them) ? I was like WHAT!!!!

    Well anyway, I hope it works itself out soon! Your card is stunning, I just love the pale aquas and purples together!

    Hugs :)

I love the shade of blue you used on your card and the butterfly is so gorgeous
