Three more sleeps..

Hello Everyone............only three more sleeps then I'm off to the Gold Coast for a week....and just been informed from a friend where I'm staying...bring a jumper...and she didn't mean my own personnal Kangaroo, she means a woolly one....wind,rain,and cold..yay!!!
But their cold and my cold a have a difference of 15 o... so not too worried, and the craft fair is undershelter...and I can live with frizzy hair for a week...

So here we are, MAKE IT MONDAY  about to kick off a new week, and I have seen some gorgeous projects this last week, in fact we always have many beautiful projects to and blogs to visit and we needed help, so I'm a very happy camper to say we have 4 lovely ladies, who have come to join us and enjoy what we already enjoy every week and they are..Tracey, Marjorie, Meihsia and Sandy, and you can meet them over at Make it Monday's main Blog  welcome ladies..

This week we are sponsored by
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop

This week's prize is this gorgeous Pink Pretty Little Ribbon Pack!

For my card this week I used 2 images from Stampfairy, from the Linda Spring collection,  but made them look like merged...well I joined the grass up in the middle..that is my limit to merging...

Coloured with pencils,inked up my sky,added butterflies, paper from scrapbox. and made a ribbon flower around the image...

here's my card open, and decorated inside.

My favourite pick from last week was this entry from.....

Laney # 201

I've been admiring this card for what seems like weeks now and all this time I couldn't figure out how you did the cool elevation difference of the ribbons....AH HA...thanks for the side shot. That looks wonderful. Love your 'merging' too.

Freakin' AWESOME POTW...Holy wow..that's complex!

Hugs and have fun in a couple of days!

Hi Chrissy, You so made me laugh with the 2 more sleeps. My crafty friend at work calls them beds and she has only 20 more bed before she is headed to Tennisee to see Tim McGraw in concert once again. The luck brat. lmbo....Oh, to be just 10 years older and have money to burn. Not really, I love having my kids at home and being broke from payday to payday. It's worth it when I come home and they want to hug me hello and tell me about their days. Anyway my friend, I LOVE this card. What a fantastic idea to do with the ribbons. I of course think that your coloring is beautiful as always, but I just can't get over your ribbon idea. :O) Would it be ok with you if I used it sometime? I would of course give you full credit for it. Hope your 2 sleeps go by fast so that you can have a great time. I didn't really think about it until just now, but I only work tomorrow and then I am off for the whole week as I wanted to take the kiddo's first week off from school with them.
Hugs, Lisa

Love the colours Chrissy and the clever way you've used the ribbon. Your pic of the Queen makes me smile too... gotta wonder what he said to her because they are both having a good laugh.

Michelle said...

Hi Chrissy

I'll see what I can do about getting my order in for better weather for you while you are here!

Hope you have a fun week here in oz.

Your card this week is so adorable!! Love how you have used the ribbon. I'm the same as Lisa, been wondering all week how you had created the effect of the height difference. Side on shot has cleared that up beautifully.

Your POTW is amazing! That is a mega exploding box.

Michelle :o)
