She Passed!

Friday, 16 October 2015

Hello Folks!

Another 4 weeks have been and gone in a flash!  The year will soon be away and I'm still struggling to remember to write 2015 instead of 2014!
My wee sister passed her driving test last Saturday.  She hadn't told us that she was doing it but I had an inkling :)  She was under pressure to pass it first time as we all passed on our first attempts (all being the siblings - there are 4 of us altogether, including Rachael).  She managed it so was quite excited and very happy!  She then drove her car up to Belfast on Sunday to Queens, where she goes to university.  She wasn't overly confident as it's a good bit away and involves motorway and lanes and round-abouts and lots of traffic - and she only passed her test the day before!  It also involves knowing the way, so mummy went with her, with daddy following to take mummy home again!  We'll see how she manages on the homeward journey.

We have another challenge for you this fortnight at the Alphabet Challenge Blog, and it was my turn to choose the theme, so I went for...

R for Ribbon!

I want to see lots of lovely ribbon on your makes, I'd really like to see some innovative ways of using ribbon, as well as beautiful bows and showing off pretty ones.

As I had a special occasion for a card this week, I had a specific theme, here's what I did:

I made this for Rachael and I started off by googling a map of our local area which I took a screen-shot of and turned it sepia in photoshop.  The other papers I used are American Crafts, Lucky Charm.

The image is Keys Please by Saturated Canary.  I coloured her with the following copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair;E4937,33,30. Top;Y26,23,21. Trousers;E29,27,25,23. Boots;RV34,32,21,10. Eyes;YG17,13. Certificate;E40.

The dies I used are: Die-Namics - Dainty Doily Duo (the small one), Magnolia swirl Doohickey, Memory Box - Simple Banner and Marianne Design die and matching stamp for the sentiment.
The flower is from The Works and the ribbons and charms are from my stash.

The inside is kept fairly simple and echoes the front.  I used another map of the local area which also got the sepia treatment.

So there you have it, I hope you can join us at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and show us what you can do with ribbon!

Thanks for looking!
