ribbons ribbons everywhere!!

Well hello there..

So how is everyone??? I feel like I should buy a boat as the river at the end of or path keeps bursting its banks at the minute lol.. but I am keeping my fingers crossed that the weather picks up soon as we are going to Cornwall at the end of the month lol..

Belle has settled in just perfectly. Can you believe we have only had her 6 weeks today??? I don't remember her not being here !!!!! 

I have a funny story - My Grandparents are Greek and Yugoslavian so as a child I learnt both languages along with English. I used to spend  a lot of time with my Nana and go to Greek church with her every week. So this week was my Nana's memorial and we took Belle to church. Now Belle is a chatty little soul but the look of confusion on her face when the old ladies starting cooing over her in Greek was hysterical lol!!!! Then it came to communion - we had decided Belle would be blessed so I took her down (Sam was to scared they would ask her a question in Greek and she wouldn't understand). The Priest blessed her and tried to give her communion - to which Belle was horrified... until she tasted it - then she grabbed the chalice - I honestly thought she was gonna drink it all lol... hmmm I am gonna need to keep an eye on her I think!!!!!

So today is Wednesday so that means a new challenge over at Inky Impressions and this week it is Ribbons - yep Ribbons so two or more!!

We are sponsored this week by both Inky impressions and Crafty Ribbons

So here is my card:

I used Jellie bean papers and a bit of doodling!!
The ribbons are from my stash
The sentiment is a CC design
and of course Fairy Lili which you can get here

I know I say this all the time but I do love this stamp lol.. I think it is my most used!!

And here is a close up of the sentiment using diamond dust

I am entering this into:

Anything goes - Things with wings

One stop crafts - one image, 2 papers and 3 embellies (ribbon)
