Crafty Ribbons - Music Ribbon

Happy Friday to you all, here is hoping you all have a great weekend
I have my Granddaughter coming to stay for the weekend, so there is sure to be lots of fun and  giggles along the way.
I am sharing with you a card and tag I made last week, I spotted a card using the same technique on Facebook, but when I went back for another look and to give some credit I could not find it :-(
I had lots of fun making my set and will certainly be making many more of these

The little images are so cute 
They are from
Digi Stamp Boutique and are called Penguin Fun Set
You can find them 
I cut out the circle holes and dusted around with Distress Inks, and then decorated using the penguin set , I used Graph'It Markers to colour and glitter on the trimmings, but it seems my new camera has an issue with glitter and refuses to play nicely!
I finished off my card center and tag using the wonderful ribbon from 
The perfect finishing touch

Gnome House & Tag ~ Crafty Ribbons

I so love being part of the Crafty Ribbons DT
We get lots of lush ribbons to play with stroke
While I was deciding on my  project I had Christmas in mind.....
But Then.............
I spotted them  Eeeeeeeekkkkk OMG Gnome Ribbon, Christmas was soon forgotten as I set to work

I made the Gnome House first, I cut it out on my portrait using red and white card stock
and then used the following
Gnome Ribbon - Mushroom ~ around the base
Gnome Ribbon - Garden Gnomes ~ for cut out Gnomes (can you spot the nosy one peeping out the door)

I added a few die cuts and ladybird stamps and my little house was complete

I then made my tag ~ also cut out on my portrait
The ribbons I used for this are
Gnome Ribbon - Mushroom ~ around the base
5mm Gingham red/white ~for the top of tag

For the tag background I used Distress Oxides, and doodles round with a black micron pen. I die cut a few tiny flowers, painted them and then used Liquid pearls in the centers
I did a few circles using white Gesso and an old water spray lid (knew it would come in handy)

The Gnome is called Pete and is from Make it Crafty, he is  a real cute cheeky chappie. I coloured him up with Graph'It Markers.

Peggy The Whale

Oh what fun did Felicity and I have making this
and we have named it
Peg-gy the Whale
It's for the Polkadoodles weekly game on Facebook
If you want to win a prize make sure to join in here

To make our game we started of by painting a clothes peg , we painted it blue for the sea, and left it to dry . We then gathered our Polkadoodles stamps
We used
A few from the different collections that you can find here
The Whale and the Fish etc (coloured with Polychromo pencils)
But...... here is the fun part ~ The whale has just had her lunch but what has she eaten ..... its another one of the stamps  hmmmm could it be a crab? maybe a fish? Starfish? or maybe something completly different ~ study those stamps and take a guess,( you can guess as many times as you wish but make sure it's on the Facebook page here)
Once the peg is open the answer is revealed.
We finished of using a little netting from our tangerines and a little sparkle of glitter

Edit with the answer

EEEkkkk exciting news ~ Crafty Ribbons

So Super Excited to say.......
I am now part of the Crafty Ribbons DT

I have always loved Ali's lovely Ribbons and a few years back made various ribbon samples for shows etc ,so it was an honour to become part of the team.
The only problem I can see is what ribbons to choose for my upcoming projects, Oh My drool, drool there are so many to choose from, I have so many ideas I had to start my own notebook.

I have my Granddaughter staying (again) for a few weeks , we just love crafting together, so I let her choose what we should make. We made this on Tuesday after a visit on Monday to the safari park where she had spotted Reindeers so this was quite an apt make.
Using a couple of files from SIL store I cut out the bag and the gift card holder and Felicity glued them together. We added some googly eyes . Felicity made two little red bows and stuck them on , and then adhered the little golden bells.
I attached the ribbon bag handle.

 Once the holly was stuck on I gave it a shine of glossy accents.

And this is the lushness we used from Crafty Ribbons
Bows - 7mm Country check
Bag strap and Gift card holder strip - Christmas Owl Ribbon
Button - Basics 2 Go Buttons
