Scrapbook Boutique August Challenge

Strength and Hope narrow

Hey there....I hope your week has so far been a good one...TGIF tomorrow hey:-))

Not to mention it's a long weekend for those of us lucky enough to get the RNA Show Holiday...wooohoooo!

I played last night with some favourite papers and colours to make a card for this month's Scrapbook Boutique Challenge. My crafty friend Therese has just joined the SB Design Team which is very lucky for them....she is an awesome papercrafter.....CAS mostly.....don't know how she does it but she sure does it with style:-)

Their challenge for this month is to be inspired by this sweet piccie and use ribbons and/or bows...


Well that's hardly a challenge at all really is it....I think I have a ribbon and/or bow on every card I make lol. Just can't help myself!

Here 'tis....

So my house is sparkling tonight....and I have a new card for ACFS....I've gotta be happy with that:-)
