Crafts and Me Ribbon Challenge

I know, I know, it's me,

Yes, this is my busy week and don't I know it this week.  My early night on Monday turned into midnight, so not so early so I will be having another stab at it, but I have so much to do and not enough hours in the day, but I think all crafters say this.

Right, today it's the Rockin Rubbah's turn to host the Crafts and Me Challenge blog and this week's easy peasy theme has been chosen by one of newest Design Team Members, Sylvia, and Sylvia would love to see ribbon on your projects.  Easy right, so I guess by the time I get in tonight you'll have all entered and my early night will have turned into a commenting night, lol.

Stocks of the Art Deco stamps by Lemon Shortbread available from Crafts and Me are due back in this week, so Teresa will be updating the store so I thought it would be the ideal time to remind you with this gorgeous "lady with fan" image, and as it is my Sister's birthday next week and she absolutely adores Art Deco, I made this card for her.

My sister also has a love for black and white, so I have met half way and coloured the image black and white and added a little colour to the rest of the card.

I do hope you'll play along with us, HERE.
