Halfway point for UnstampaBelles Ribbon Challenge

It's the halfway point for UnstampaBelles and here is a card to provide a bit of inspiration.

Don't forget, UnstampaBelles is having a Design Team call - see HERE for details.

As mentioned in a previous post, I got some goodies from Blue Edge Crafts at the Craft Fair and here is one of the cards I made ;-)


Everything was provided (except the glue) in the pack - including an envelope.
Square card embossed using Crafters Companion Ultimate Pro embossing board.  Tag is embellished with rub-ons, martini glass and cherry and tag attached with foam dots, flowers & gem attached with glue.

I gave this card to my niece on the weekend, as well as a scarfe I knitted for her ;-)

We also celebrated my Zoe's (my Great Niece) Birthday on the weekend, but I forgot to take my camera - I can't believe I did that  ;-(  There was face painting and balloon making - that will teach me, I will never forget to take my camera to a family get together ever again!
I did manage to snaffle my nephew's camera and take a few shots for him - it was a bit weird using a different camera, but I managed to get a few good shots!

The Birthday Girl!

My Dad, Great GrandDad, with Karyn my niece, and Zoe my Great Niece

Me and my sister ;-)

The Belles together at the Salisbury Craft Fair

I went to the Craft Fair today and had an absolutely wonderful time ;-)

I caught up with fellow UnstampaBelles Mandy and Beth at the Blue Edge Crafts Stall 




then I bumped into a very dear friend I hadn't seen in such a long time

we have known each other since about 1967 ;-)
it was so good to see Kevina again - we have swapped phone numbers 
and will be catching up for a coffee real soon ;-)

UnstampaBelles Challenge #12 - Ribbon

Challenge #12 for UnstampaBelles started today and I was late ;-(


Thankfully, I didn't get sent to Detention for being tardy ;-)


The theme this month is 'ribbon'.


Challenge #12 - Ribbon 

All entries are subject to the Design Teams discretion.

Any form of paper creation will be accepted as long as NO STAMPS (Digital or Rubber) have been used (this includes sentiments).
  
You can find our rules here for further information.

Our Sponsor this month is our very own Beth from the Design Team and HuggiesCrafts blog.

Beth has generously donated this wonderful prize.
It's not fair ...... the Design Team can't win this ;-(



This challenge closes Friday, 29th June 2012 and Winners will be announced Monday, 2nd July 2012 - Remember we are working on Aussie Time.


Here is a quick recap of the rules:


No Stamps! This means no rubber stamps, no digital stamps, clipart or line art which includes pre-coloured versions. Inclusive of sentiment stamps.


Full Rules can be found HERE


Due to graphic technology any entry with a graphic image will be subject to the Design Teams' discretion and we will contact you if we feel the entry does not meet the ethos of our challenge blog.




Now for my DT entry.




Simple pink card embossed using Cuttlebug, Ribbon placed on front, layered on darker card, then layered onto white card.  With no sentiment on front, the card could be suitable for several situations
'Thinking of You', 'Thank You', 'Happy Birthday' even 'Sorry'.
(I have trimmed the ribbon better ;-)  since taking the photo)

Cardstock from Blue Edge Crafts.

Please visit the UnstampaBelles blog  and see last month's winner.

Each month there are some amazing entries and it really is getting more difficult for the DT to pick a favourite!
