Sweet Stampin' - use more than 1 ribbon

Well I was half expecting to find that Blogger had forced me onto the updated version this morning, but it looks like they've not got round to me yet... maybe I should just be brave and change myself over... wish they'd just leave it alone, I'm not good with anything new!  I'm here with my card for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin', which is 'use more than 1 ribbon'.  We're sponsored by Craft Ribbons this week and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen.




This card was made for an order - the two fab images are Connie Shopping and Ava and flowers from DigiStamp Boutique, merged together to suit the customer's request.  I coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers and added a couple of gems on the flowers.  The papers are First Edition, as is the little tag - I added a computer generated 30 and a little pearl, and the main sentiment is computer generated too.  Ribbons from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Don't think we'll be going anywhere today, so it looks like a day of crafting.  Hubby's still suffering with his yucky bug, and we couldn't go out even if we wanted to - hubby's workmate borrowed his company car for a couple of days while hubby's been at home, he dropped it off this morning but assumed hubby had the spare key - he hasn't, it's at work!  And as he parked it behind my car on the drive, mine is blocked in lol, so we can't move either of them... so looks like we're staying here for now!  Hope you're all having a good weekend so far :o)

Hi Lisa. This is so pretty. Gorgeous image, such delicate and very pretty colours and a lovely design.
I am not really liking the new look blogger. Like you Lisa, I wish they would leave things alone, it drives me mad all this changing about.
Have a lovely weekend.
Love Sandra xxx

I don’t even know the way I finished up right here, however I assumed this publish was great. I do not realize who you are but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already. Cheers!

Well it will come anytime soon Lisa, I got up this morning and found it had changed, however after initial shock and horror have managed to find my way around it all quite easily - it is a pain, but I think it's OK.

Hi Lisa

Gorgeous card.... love how you've merged those images.... I'm sure your customer will be really pleased with it!

My blogger changed on Friday - I'd been dreading it, but so far, so good.... it's much more streamlined and so much easier to do our commenting.. BUT, I haven't had to post anything yet, so I'm not speaking too soon I hope!

Hugs

Carole said...

Hi Lisa,
I was a bit daunted when I logged in to find I'd been changed over as I had only just got used to the other one. I'm with you why do they have to mess us about!

Happy crafting
Carole xXx

Mary J said...

Gorgeous colouring and teh colour combo just fab Lisa!

Sarah said...

Morning Lisa, wonderful card. Love how you've put the two images together and your colour combo is fab.

I changed over to the new look Blogger ages ago, so I'm all used to it (mostly, anyway!). Thought it better to do it early rather than be forced into it in a big rush.

Hope you had a good crafty weekend and hubby is feeling better.

Sarah

Nannieflash said...
