Flowers or Ribbon

Hello bloggers. Hope everyone is happy and well. Nearly the weekend again so I am very happy!! I am sorry that I still haven't been a regular visitor. I am fed up with bleating about work but it's been relentless...I am hoping to finish with holiday and sickness cover some time in December!! I am missing so much time with my loved ones,  two and four legged and you guys too!!

Anyway today's offering is for the new challenge at 

where we are eager to see your projects with ribbon or flowers...and don't forget to tell us why.

Normally I don't use either on my projects as I am a paper pad fanatic and like to let the papers do the talking!! However I have a chest of drawers full of ribbons  so had a rummage to find something to trim this snow globe. The stripe ribbon was in a bundle that I won from Crafty Ribbons and the bobble trim was lurking in the "red drawer" and seemed perfect!! 

The background was quite technical for me!!  I admired a background that Inky Fingers Carol demonstrated here and decided to have a go ( having first purchased some drawing gum!!). Mind you my snowflakes look rather large so I must perfect my technique further I think!! There is also a lovely shimmer, as I unearthed my Twinkling H2o's as well so that was fun!! The penguin is a die cut chappy from Crafters Companion as was the snow globe actually. 

Anyway I have rambled quite enough!! Hope you will join in!!

See you soon xx

Sarah, so lovely to hear from you. We get DM the day after you see in the UK (I have Acorn). Have been watching to see the places in Pt. Isaac that we may have seen, and any rehearsals or filming bits that we caught. I love your Chilly Willy penguin, in his cozy little snuggle hat and scarf. Made such a cute snow globe, and the candy stripe ribbon is just THE perfect hanger! Expect MC is back on his farm by now, and you & Surprise might bump into him on your rides. TFS & Hugs. Happy wkend.
