Ribbons and Flowers

Good morning and a Happy Friday to you all! A big welcome to Karen my latest follower - great to see you Karen. Today is my last card that I am making for Sassy Designs I have made the decision to step down with the baby's arrival in 12 days time I won't have as much time for crafting.  I would like to thank the team for being fab and very supportive I will miss working with the wonderful images. Big wave to my Sassy Sisters and Brother xx

Sassy are sponsoring Left of Centre Challenges today and the theme is Ribbons and Flowers.  Now I have only just realised they are a bit steampunky and goth over there so not sure how my card would go down but they won't see it so it doesn't matter I guess!

I have used Sassy Little Honey's Japan and coloured her with Copics.  Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax to cut her out.  The papers are ancient some I got years ago on QVC and never used, they came in a set with peel offs and decoupage things.  The flowers are Cheery Lynn and tag is Go Kreate. Here is another view:

Not sure where that pink hue came from I think it may have been too sunny when I took the picture.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Crafty Little Fairies - Add a Tag
Ladybug Crafts Ink - For a Special Girl
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes with a Bow
Craft Your Passion - For the Ladies
Glitter 'n Sparkle - Use Some Blue
Pile It On - Pretty Hair
Pink Gem -  Special Female/Birthday

I am off with my daughter today for last minute shopping for things.  She is still in breech and with the baby being big and her having developed gestational diabetes they have booked her in for a Caesarian Section on the 9th April.  I will be relieved when it will be all done the only disappointment for me is that I was going to be with her during the birth but with a Section only one person is allowed. But not long now!

Thank you so much for looking today, take care xx

Hope all goes well with your daughter. She has a rough go with the breech position and the gestational diabetes.
